The Orion 5x Gen 1 Night Vision Riflescope from Armasight is an intermediate to long-range optic for targeting in low-light conditions. This NV scope comes with a detachable IR illuminator that quickly mounts to the Orion scope's built-in accessory rail. The IR illuminator's adjustable focus allows the shooter to spotlight their target with infrared light or illuminate a broader field of view for increased awareness.
Armasight equipped the Orion riflescope with a Gen 1 intensifier tube that produces 30-40 lp/mm resolution. Overlaid on the night vision image is a red duplex reticle, which can be set to the brightness level that suits the ambient lighting condition by adjusting the dedicated dial just below the accessory rail. Low-profile windage and elevation adjustment turrets near the eyepiece allow the scope's aiming point to be adjusted in 1/2 MOA increments.
In addition to its 108mm f/1.6 lens system, the Orion 5x also features a weather-sealed and shock-resistant aluminum housing that is built to endure recoil from light caliber rifles. Rubber armoring and textured adjustment dials help to maintain grip while making adjustments—even in the rain or while wearing gloves.
Additional features like a baffled rubber eyecup, flip-down objective cover, and integrated Weaver rail mount help make the Orion Night Vision Riflescope a well-equipped and user-friendly option. This scope comes with a zippered carrying case and is backed by Armasight's 2-year warranty.
