Sightmark Debuts Hybrid Night-Vision Riflescope


( — Sightmark will release the Photon 5×42 Digital Night Vision Riflescope at SHOT 2014. The optic is an exclusively modified unit that takes a daytime riflescope, removes the objective lens, and replaces it with a cutting-edge night vision attachment complete with a CCD sensor and built-in infrared illuminator.

“Though around the same price point as Generation 1 night vision products, the Sightmark Photon 5×42 delivers twice the range of observation compared to Gen 1,” said Sightmark President James Sellers. “The Photon also features the best of digital technology and a unique design, allowing shooters to enhance their nighttime shooting experience considerably.”

Complete with a high-power 150mW laser IR illuminator, the Sightmark Photon 5×42 increases the overall detection range for a clear focus on any size long-distance target in low-ambient light conditions or pitch-black darkness.

Featuring a Dot-Duplex reticle for quick target acquisition of fast-moving targets and a 5x magnification for vivid detailing, the Photon 5×42 is ideal for hog and varmint hunting. Users have the ability to capture everything seen, day or night, with the unit’s video output feature.
