    Straight to the point, what's the most inexpensive nightscope available?

    That is kind of a trick question, there are some homebuilt units but actual night scopes I'm going to say Sightmark Photon Or One of the old gen ATN scopes 

    You are looking at about $400 to 500 dollars

    I was looking at the Firefield 3×42 NV a while ago.  Around $300 and it seems to have gotten good reviews.  It is only 3x though…

    Price is not always cost?   I'd be more interested in knowing what you end up buying after you fine the cheap ones aren't worth fooling with.    Rather buy it right the first time. 

    What would you recommend?   You fellows who have experience  with this stuff.

    I have a home built near eye unit and a Photon XT. I would say that they are comparable to each other as far as image and range with the right illuminator. The home built will run 12+ hours on 2 18650 Panasonic batteries. The Photon will run about 2-3 hours on 2 AA batteries. The home built can be used on any scope without rezeroing. The Photon is a dedicated NV scope for 1 gun, unless you can write down or remember the X & Y settings for the different guns. I can record with both but need a DVR to do so. To be honest, I use the home built more than I use the Photon due to its interchangability and battery life. You can view the results from the home built on talonairgunforum  in the hunting section. Look for Barn Rats 2018. Keep in mind the actual image is way better than the recorded version.

    Take a look at nightvisionforumuk . That's where I learned to build them. It's not as hard as you might think. If you can solder and use a multimeter, you can build one. Search bullseyeft there for my builds with a parts list.

    nitesight viper is about $500 and to me, it's awesome. however some may say it looks like a tv monitor in design instead or shaped like a traditional scope.

    Nice, kinda inexpensive and made in America.  One for recording while you shoot, the other just works as a night vision scope.  Either works day and night.

    I use an ATN X Sight 4K Pro. Great picture at night. I wish it had a better Day time picture. Lots of “NON WORKING ADVERTISED FEATURES” LOTS OF BUGS. 

    But for basic night time ratting and such, the picture is great. Pair it with the ATN Rangefinder and it’s a lot of fun. The range finder tells the scope your target distance and the scopes zeroes your reticle to that distance. Looks very close to a regular scope which I like. You can have up to 6 guns programmed into the scope so you can move it to a different host without loosing your programming. I wish it was lighter but nothing is perfect. MSRP IS 800 but I’ve seen it on eBay for about 500.00
