  • NV Scopes for springers

    Hi guys,
    Thought this was probably better for the airgun forum rather than for optics:
    I'm investigating the option of mounting a night vision scope on my springer (Diana 31). After googling the topic i don't seem to be finding any definitive answers on whether its OK or not. We know that we need properly rated scopes for springers but I'm hard pressed to find out if those limits apply to NV gear.
    So the questions -
    Can any be used without completely wrecking a perfectly good night vision scope? (I'm looking for cheaper Gen 1 units)
    Has anyone here tried it on their springer? If so, how'd it work out?

    Cheers lads.

    I've tried it on a Theoben Gas Ram with a Sony Nightshot camera NV.

    It can work but the springer would need to be tuned & the NV needs to be well secured but well cushioned if that makes sense.

      Hi matt,
      Is that setup a cam hooked up to an existing springer scope?
      How did you go targeting game with that on?
