Below is a comparison table of 19 different industry optics magnifiers. Specifically the add-on type that can be flipped-to-side when not needed. From the expensive to the … less expensive. I can’t claim credit for any of the research here. I was given this chart by someone who got it off of the Light-Fighter Manifesto discord server. Just passing it along. I am sure someone out there needs this.
While lazing my neighbors house the other night (as one does) I noticed my Zenitco Perst-4, when moving rapidly, would appear to have a blinking frequency. A slow enough frequency that I could see it. Hard science then took place as I grabbed a DBal i2 (9003) and tried to duplicate the results. So far only Perst (Russian) lasers seem to do this. None of the American or even Chinese lasers seem to do it. Anyone know why?
UPDATE: This information has been transplanted to the master “Is It NiR Compliant” page.
There was a pretty good response to the somewhat of a joke-post about MultiDoge (DogeCam) being NIR compliant or not. So, why not make this an actual series and get something out of it? Hopefully I can post some of the more obscure and harder to find patterns that I have access to for those of you who make your own gear.
So, how did genuine Flecktarn material do under Infrared?Continue reading Is Flecktarn NIR Compliant?
Night Vision used to always be green, right? That is certainly how I remember it. All of a sudden this pale bluish-white image started appearing in intensifier tubes and everybody had to have it. Is it better than green? The price it commands seems to think so.Continue reading Green and White Phosphor Night Vision. What’s the difference?
Since S2 Underground and Garand Thumb both have videos circulating about NIR (Near Infrared) compliance of your gear and clothing 30MC figured it was time to do our part and find out the question that nobody has answered. Is MultiDoge (Sometimes known as “DogeCam”) NIR compliant? We put on the lab coats and went to work for you. The testing resulted in three images. Doge under white light, under NOD (night vision) and again under NOD but with the onboard illuminator turned on. After many minutes of date calculation and peer-review(ish) consultations we can firmly say…Continue reading Is MultiDoge NIR?
The boy are at it again. Joe and Geoff put on the white lab coats and do science. Don’t forget to subscribe to their YouTube channel.
From the video:
A little back to back audio comparison between a 6.75in Sig MCX with the SRD762Ti-QD suppressor and an Aero Precision build with the 7in Q Honey Badger barrel and the Q Thunder Chicken suppressor. Ammo for both guns was Hornady Black 208gr subsonic. As you can see, the Q build did not like this particular ammo with the current gas setting. This was the first time running this ammo and the first time I’ve ever had gassing issues with the Q setup.
