Product Highlights
  • 1st Generation Intensifier
  • Red on Green Duplex Reticle

Made from a state of the art titanium body, the Yukon 2.5x50 Titanium Varmint Hunter NVRS is rugged, durable and lightweight. Powerful 2.5x magnification combined with the incredible light gathering capabilities of the f/1.4 objective lens puts this scope in a class that's perfect for hunters, law enforcement or military applications.

The luminous red duplex reticle is adjustable via standard internal click-stops. Reticle brightness can be adjusted or completely turned off, a useful feature for when the eyepiece has been converted to the optional camera adapter. The included remote activation switch can be situated anywhere, depending on the task at hand.

The built in IR illuminator, which features Yukon's exclusive Pulse technology, extends the low or no light viewing capabilities of the scope. The Pulse IR system provides higher levels of IR illumination without significant battery drainage.

There are many different variables that affect the distance that one can see with a night vision device, among them the object's size, the level of details being sought from the object and the conditions of observation. Night vision devices detect much further under a full moon and clear skies than they will under a new moon and cloudy skies. Many different formulas are used to determine the statistic of maximum viewing range and the method of calculation varies by manufacturer. The important factors to consider when evaluating any night vision device are the intensifier tube's generation, s/n ratio, level of magnification, specified resolution, along with the clarity & light transmission efficiency of the optical system.

All night vision devices sold by B&H have mechanisms in place to protect the intensifier tube from a sudden burst of bright light, but this does not mean that bright light doesn't damage the device. No matter what, bright light in any form is not good for the longevity and performance of image intensifier tubes.

    Great buy

    Comments about Yukon Advanced Optics 2.5x50 Titanium Varmint Hunter Night Vision Rifle Scope:

    I put this NVRS on my DPMS LR308. Took it for a spin the night I received it. The NV range without the illuminator was definitely more than expected. The IR illuminator increases the range considerably. Fits perfectly on a weaver style rail system, holds strong under continuous firing. The weight is fairly decent. You can feel the difference, but easy to adapt. Overall, a great first night vision accessory. After using this NVRS and seeing the performance, the price is perfect.

    Comments about Yukon Advanced Optics 2.5x50 Titanium Varmint Hunter Night Vision Rifle Scope:

    As a first NVG scope this probably more than I expected for a Gen 1. The illuminated reticle works great. In half-moon I can distinguish figures up to 200m. The IR works very well for low/no light, even at distance. Only gripe is that the IR light is attached to the scope by a screw-in tube. When screwed in and tight the IR leans in toward the scope. Therefore when looking through the scope with IR on, the IR lumination is off center. I am going to jerry-rig it and put a spacer between the scope and IR tube to rectify. An adjustable IR would be a sweet accessory. But otherwise this is a solid piece and great value for the money. Would certainly recommend.

    Comments about Yukon Advanced Optics 2.5x50 Titanium Varmint Hunter Night Vision Rifle Scope:

    Bought this model instead of its twin brother in black due to temporary stock unavailability.
    I use to train night/dark dusk target acquisition (fast moving pest animals) and carbine accurate shooting.
    Having seen through a couple of security professional models, for its price the product is good with some issues to improve to be excellent one.
    The product looks strong even if lightweight.
    Its controls are ergonomic and easy, they let you move them without clutter during see-through operation (this my be not the same for left hand people)
    The image intensification is good with no noise but the sharpness is very good only for half diameter inner circle, outer is blurred a bit but still good enough for detection not for detailed acquisition.
    If the target object is wide up to view borders you must pan on it for a safe and secure ID.
    IR illuminator is very strong and its beam right wide.
    The red dimming reticle is a bit smaller than expectations and I would have placed a mil-dot one that costs to the manufacturer nothing more.
    Weaver rail mount is sometimes too long between its fixing points to require an adeguate rail on the rifle.
    At last what I consider a real mistake standing the standard on all the other optics I own (10): the windage wheel (I suppose not only on my own item) works inverted. Cloakwise arrows and "R" stay on it but turning CW the impact point move to left.
    Very interesting Yukon doubler (~2X) adapter B&H # YU2.5X50D.
    I would buy it again.
