The BNS Standard Kit - Boresighted Night Sight from N-Vision Optics is provisioned with a Gen 3, auto-gated, Pinnacle image intensifier tube with variable gain control. The BNS is a high-resolution clip-on night vision device that has been designed to mount in front of the daytime weapon sight. A fast f/1.15 catadioptric, it utilizes permanent boresight alignment technology. Waterproof, light weight, ruggedized chassis, Picatinny rail mount and rubber eyecup provide a full feature set. This optic offers universal compatibility with other daytime sights and is optimized for medium-range sniper weapons, assault rifles and machine guns. American-made Gen 3 image intensifier tubes are utilized in its construction. This is a superb night vision weapon sight that provides near daylight viewing at night. On-off-gain and focus controls have been integrated into the housing for convenient user friendly operation. The BNS incorporates a Mil-Std 1913 Picatinny mounting base for easy attachment to a wide variety of weapons.

- Dependable boresight retention enhances repeatable performance in various lighting conditions
- Boresight characteristics offer accuracy within 1 MOA and repeatability within ½ MOA without adjustments
- Optimized for medium-range sniper weapons, assault rifles and machine guns including the MK11, M16, SCAR-H, M240 & 300 Win Mag. and is effective on all weapons from carbines to .50 caliber sniper rifles
- Third-generation, Gen 3, image intensifiers utilize a GaAs photocathode enabling greater detection distances and improving system performance under low-light conditions. A metal-oxide ion barrier on the MCP more than doubles the life of the image tube
- Auto-gated Pinnacle intensifier minimizes blooming caused by bright light exposure. The auto-gating holds back or gates the power being supplied to the system decreasing the amount of amplified light being allowed in. Preferred for tactical operations as it reduces the risk of being blinded by sudden exposure to bright light
