    Keep the reports coming. I can’t wait to see how well it works for you.

    Looks interesting. Just wonder about how far your head will be back on the stock. Might have to move the scope as forward as possible to have the correct eye relief. Let us know.

    Seems interesting but over $100 more than the Night Owl Night Vision scope? 

    Oh, I see. It does daytime color video recording also. Cool!  Standing by for your evaluation.

    The fact that it connects to an existing scope would be a deal maker or breaker depending on your feeling about that feature.   I’m skeptical seems like it would be unwieldy.   

    Lets face it this stuff will be improving and what we buy today a year or two later is going to be outdated

        I have owned one since I bought my taipan back in August  and I like it or prefer it over my sightmark photon.   I don’t need or use the video features much but it is a nice hand holdable unit that if it were an 1” or 2” shorter would be perfect… for affordability/usability.

      I will be brief and say you will either love it or hate it as the one and only hurdle to overcome is that you will have to move your cheek weld (and shoulder anchor) back. If you have a typical rifle buttstock than purchasing a add on butt stock extender would be advised. 

      My experience using it on my taipan the last couple months is my cheek weld or cheek bone went from just behind the magizine to the last 1” of the reciever, something like 2” back. I made a add on buttpad for it.

    I love it as I am over switching between a dedicated day scope to my nv scope (sightmark) and don’t want to have a dedicated airgun for nv.

    Damn Brian (@toku58), you just cost me $400! I kept looking at these, and thinking how this year I want to start filming my ground squirrel and ratting escapades, both day and night, so instead of doing the smart thing and waiting for your review, I ordered one myself.  It should be here by the end of January, ordered off AliExpress and found a deal for $375 plus $12 shipping.  I guess we can compare notes bruddah…

    Ohhhhhh Nooo’s Centercut!

    I bought a Night Owl based on your review and Love it! Now Dis??? Daaamn Brahdah you making me spend mo Kala! HAHAHA. Hopefully you’ll do a review on the unit as I’m also looking to add video to my adventures. Night Vision is a Plus but don’t want a dedicated unit for one gun. 

    Aloha,

    Mark, HA!  Will do a good review once I get it. Probably another couple of weeks to get it. I ordered a spare attachment ring so I can set up two guns to easily snap it on and off, the .22 Mutant and the .25 Vulcan.  Both those guns have a Bushnell Engage scope, and the ocular is 44mm, so it should fit the PARD NV007 well as the snap ring for the scope is 45mm.  Yes, I do love the Night Owl, but like you I wanted to start doing some day filming also, so might as well kill two manu with one pohaku…  And the Night Owl will have a good home with Nick (@socaloldman), my shooting bruddah…  ;)

    RAJA DAT Centercut! Everyone that looks through the Night Owl is blown away with the clarity for the price we paid! “IF” the PARD NVOO7 turns out to be that versatile I could swap it on several guns an go from hunting pigs to shooting Hawaiian Squriels (mongoose)! Haven’t had the chance to hunt mongoose yet but have a spot in mind. Would be nice to record my adventures. Was thinking of ordering a Side Shot but it’s now in a holding pattern pending your review! Checked it out on EBay but dem Buggas no ship to Hawaii! 😱😡

    I bought mine off AliExpress. Not sure but I think they ship Hawaii. The one I found was $375.20, and $12 shipping.  But about a month estimated shipping time…  ;(  I'll post once I get it and check it out daytime and nighttime… Brian will probably get his before me.  Dos dam mongooses used to steal the pupus from my golf cart at Barber's Point when I was on da greens!!!

    I have a question for Centercut…  

        I could PM but maybe there is another lefty like me who wants an Edgun R5M and is planning on using this night vision add on.  My concern and my favor to ask is after you recieve the pard nv unit and use it/ do your review is to try it lefty and see if the magazine is in the way for me a lefty?

    I have seen Ed shoot and it looks like the magazine is right below his ear and for me this nv unit moved me 2” back so that might put the magazine right on my cheek bone. This made me think the R5M is a no go with this nv unit for me.

    I was thinking maybe you could with the gun…I believe you have a R5M, just hold the unit next to the scope and pretend to be lefty and slowly move your face into position. I don’t want you to go out of your way as I am happy with my taipan but this R5M was second on my list but this need to use this pard nv unit struck it from list thinking the mag would be right in the middle of my cheek weld.   

    No rush for an answer as a purchase would not take place anytime soon and I am really happy with the taipan.  We all know how addicting these high end pcp’s are so your answer would help me tame this addiction/desire.

        Thank you

    There is also a Pard 008 that doesn't need a scope, but it cost more.
