    This is a older Gen 1 night vision scope from ATN. It's an Aries MK350 Guardian and probably 6 years old. A buddy is letting me check it out for hog and coyote thinning. The image is actually very good at xbow distances. I've set it up for 25 yards which is a good compromise where I hunt and sighted it in.

    Thank goodness this will sit on a Field Pod. The scope adds about 3 pounds to the normal Vortec weight.

    Wish me luck!

    Nice.

    I had played with the idea of doing this with my ATN XSight but was worried about the weight on the polymer scope mount of the bow I was using at the time.

    I was going to use it in conjunction with a HHA Optimizer for range adjustment.

    Curious to see how this project works out.

    Looks deadly. Heavy though....

    It is at that. It's a 3.6 lb heavyweight vs the RMP featherweight that weights in at just .8 lb.
