    I know you get what you pay for but I am thinking about adding NVG to my kit. Any suggestions? The last thread on here was from 2012. What do I want it for? Whatever. Just wanted to see what's going on when the world goes dark.

    Not in the "budget" world. I have hundreds of hours with military grade nv as a crew chief and for nv on a budget before you get into the tnvc level this stuff isn't bad

    I got a cheap one used at a pawn shop that thought it was broken for like $50. alot of the newer cheap ones use an IR camera and transmit to a tiny video display in the eyepiece. movement is blurry, and its hard to pick things up. The display isnt dimmable so the black and white can f up your night vision. That being said, if i ever have to walk home in the dark, it will be nice to know what is around the corner without using a 500,000,000 lumen tactical spotlight.

    I am saving up for a 14. But for $50 i feel it is worth it.

    Freedom group sucks, but are you going to tell people that bushmaster, remington, para, and AAC suck? He asked about the product not the owners.
