That's OK. When IR broke off did it leave any hole into the cavity of the
scope? If it did, use some black anodized aluminum (or black plastic) plate
1/16 or smaller and mold it and fit to where it broke off only if there are
Once the plate been fitted tightly. Now you drill some holes. The number of
drill holes is up to you. Go down to your local fastener business, the carry all
kinds of screws, machine screw, bolts, nuts, everything that you might need. Get
the machine screws that are the self threading. They will look like a little
machine screw with SAE threads but it will be tapered on end with a small notch
cut in the end. This way you will not have to use a tap to thread the
holes.-----One more thing here, pre-tap the drill with self tapping machine
screws. This way you can clean out the scope cavity Then apply a thing layer of
black rubber cement to the cover plate and then screw the machine screws. The
length of the machine screw are critical. You don't want the to long where the
reach far into the scope cavity. It could disrupted the flow of light to the NV
Now, for a IR lumination. Get head light with one high luminating bulb. Get
an IR lens and have it fitted to the head light, now you have IR lumination.
Simple, hey. stewbison
Hello - nice looking scope and with 100 % rave reviews.
Not much to adjust really - cover off , battery inserted , turn on - adjust brightness.
IR illuminator on'off.
I've just read through page 5 on user manual - at least they have a 2 yr warrantee and some phone numbers to get support.
Here is user manual / guide + trouble shooting tips.
A simple test is looking at a distant street light - just incase the 'amplifier' is very sensitive.
(that causes BLACK spots) .
If the amp is damaged , they would have a test -- Ray
Hello, You turn off the scope switch, hey. But did you turn off the IR switch? Never leave batteries in you NV devise. It creates lot of problems. Just take them out and wrap those batteries in plastic bag each and store them in cool dry place. stewbison
Hello. you do know that NV devise are to be used during the black hours of the
night. Any type of bright lights will burn out the multi-plate coating. It only
take a few time and the image intensifier tube is gone. The generation 3 and 3+
image tubes have auto gating that is, if the sensor detects bright lights with
shut down. Now, this help but bright light with even the generations of image
tube. It will still destroy them.
To get repaired you can send it to ATN in California. Just for them to take a
look and see what wrong will $100+ plus shipping both ways and the cost of parts
that is, if they have the parts.
What they will try to do, is that they will take your 258 scope in for trade.
Then have you up grade from this 6 year old NV scope to a new model. They could
also tell you it's not repairable.
Now, I have repair a few of the MK ATN NV scopes, and all the image
intensifier tubes are manufactured in Russia, and there is good possibility that
the hole scope was manufactured there.
The Russian manufactures will just print the American Vendor name and logo on
the scope, monocular, binocular that they manufacture. You send to me and I will
take look at and try to find a new image tube for it. drawbridge21.q.com.
your kidding right??? 300m what the hell are you trying to shoot way out there then???? a battle ship? you will be very very lucky to hit the side of a hill at that range with a nv sight, its not even a good one? gen 2+ maybe? move up to a gen 5+ if you wont 300m+
if i were you i would stick to a range you could shoot at,,ie, 150m tops! and as you havent told up what rifle you have or how powerfull it is,,il have a gess and say its a thumper some thing like a
ruger 22.250,,,so set the sight up for 100m and it will hit every thing you aim at right out to 200m+
Observe the IR illuminator with a digital camera and see if it if fluctuating in output brightness. If that is OK, the problem may be in the HV circuit. They are both easy to fix if the person has some experience.
