Night Vision on the Cheap

    Nick wanted to participate in the Pitcairn Monroeville Shooting Club’s (PMSC) 3rd Annual Dark Shoot but did not want to spent a fortune on night vision gear. His solution was the Jakks Pacific Eyeclops Night Vision Scope that costs about $50.

    Nick paired the scope with a KRISS Super V carbine, a EOTech 552 and a Surefire Vampire flashlight. Both the EOTech and Surefire can be set to output only infrared light.

    The scope was reasonably successful considering it was a $50 scope. The range was limited to about 30 yards, the rail mount is not to spec and its built-in infrared illuminator had to be disabled because even on the low setting it washed out the EOTech reticle.
