    I think I need one.

    • Giolli Joker

      Me too… who cares about putting food on the table anyway…

      • tts

        Food?! Phhhht, its this extra kidney I’m not caring about personally. You get 2 for a reason and getting this scope is about as good as any other reason I guess.

  • Anton Gray Basson

    Damn thats tiny.

  • avconsumer2

    Oi. Hawt, but dat price.

  • Plumbiphilious

    Wow…I didn’t know you could put something worth a small, new-ish car into your hand…

    • Budogunner

      Previously those sorts of things were called engagement rings. At least a thermal optic is more practical.

  • Steve

    You know these have been available for 2+ years, right?

  • Cal S.

    You know what I call my tubular night-vision device? A $30 flashlight.

    • Southpaw89

      I just wait a few minutes for my eyes to adjust, on a clear night that’s all you need, and its free. If its overcast or in thick trees then I reach for a flashlight.

      • sgt fish

        then you’ve never experienced real NV or thermal optics, especially in new moon or overcast conditions

        • Southpaw89

          Can’t say I have, their just too expensive to justify when the only time I carry a rifle at night is en rout to a hunting blind. In those situations all you really need to see is the path in front of you.

      • Budogunner

        That works until the first muzzle flash.

        • Southpaw89

          No muzzle flash until shootin hours, out here that means daylight. The only time I have an issue is if someone blinds me with their flashlight.

    Soon to be featured in RECOIL attached to a $4,000 AR with a $3,000 main optic, $900 backup CQB reflex, $120 Kevlar sling, $800 Cerakote paint job, grip with a $200 stipple job (because why not), and a $250 skeletonized drum mag.

    Right after the write-up on a $80,000 custom Jeep Wrangler.

    • Nicks87

      …and the gun never leaves the safe nor is the Jeep ever driven anywhere except for photo ops.

  • Old Fart

    I don’t mind spending the extra buck on high end gear, but 11,5? My goodness, I’d rather get a WC 1911 and a year’s or so worth of ammo for that kind of money.

  • Jack

    Anyone know what muzzle device is on pic #2?

    Clearly something that’s being marketed to the military, but made available to civilians. With a price that high they’d never survive on private sales alone.
