With the discontinuation of the X-Sight 5-18 Smart Riflescope, you need to look at something similar or perhaps a step up from that scope. The ATN X-Sight II HD 5-20x seems to be the way to go.

If you’re already fairly certain that this is the scope for you, click this link to see the X-Sight II HD 5-20x Riflescope at Amazon. Continue reading “ATN X-Sight II HD 5-20x Day and Night Riflescope Review”

Leupold VX-1: Review of the Best Rifle Scope in Its Class

Back in 2008, Leupold bought the Redfield brand of optical equipment. They added Rifleman scopes to their lineup of other excellent products. This had the effect of pushing Leupold VX-1 rifle scopes upward relative to their other offerings.

So, no longer is the VX-1 the entry level or beginner rifle scope that you might have thought it was at one point.

Let’s take a closer look at this line of scope in detail to see if this is a scope for you. (Spoiler: It probably is.) Continue reading “Leupold VX-1: Review of the Best Rifle Scope in Its Class”

You may be familiar with a scene from the movie Monty Python and the Holy Grail in which the troupe is asked several questions before they are allowed to cross a bridge. One of the questions is this: What is your quest? None of them answer, “To find the best night vision hunting scope,” but since that’s our “holy grail” here, it’s the question we’ll ask and try to answer.

It’s not an easy question to answer right off the bat because there is a lot of information to understand and to sort out before we can come to a possible solution in answer to the question. We’ll take the time to do so though, so that in the end we should have a reasonable selection of night vision hunting scopes that could claim the honor of “best”, even if we can’t narrow the field down to just one.
