Best Night Optic/Sighting Systems...
For a while now, I've been trying to determine what might possibly be the "best" sighting system (optic OR irons) for nightime use.
I suppose one could argue that there is a "best" sighting system when a rail mounted light is used, and then there might also be a "best" sighting system when a rail mounted light is NOT used.
SO, what would you guys say?
I have been thinking that ANY of the major optics such as ACOGS, Eotechs, Aimpoints, etc and even irons with a Trijicon front sight post, would ALL be more difficult to acquire a target with at night. (without the use of a light).
However, this all changes when a light IS used.
Further, the last issue would be night vision, and that is a whole different topic in itself, and also something else I'm interested in. I'm basically trying to determine WHAT different night vision optic choices are available, and also which ones are feasible (ie lightweight, affordable, most popular, etc).
