Pulsar N550 Digital Nightvision Riflescope

Having read so much about the Pulsar N550 i was dying to have a go of one. A good freind and owner of the popular  online store Nick Riley kindly offered me the chance to have a unit on test for a while just to see how good these really are . I must say i was impressed with the quality of the units when i first set eyes on it, it looks like something from the set of startrek and i was soon contemplating setting it up on the rapid and having a quick zero session. I will admit i had a quick scan through the instructions , the unit has that many buttons it can intimidate you but the more of the book i read i found it  very straight forward to set  up. I wont go  into detail with all the technical lingo as i will be doing more of a propper feature in future editions of Airgunner  but what i will say is i would recomend this unit to anyone going into night vision for the first time. With a 3 years warranty and the price of the unit it is a cracking deal.
Here is a small vid of my first session testing the unit and getting used to the setting up .

I hope you like the first session and there will be many more to add in the future .

Here is a snip from the website describing the unit and the additions that you can buy for it .

Pulsar N550 digital night vision kit
Instock and ready to dispatch
The kit includes the Pulsar N550 , an additional Ir illuminator to give extended viewing range and a free AA intelligent battery charger with 4 high quality AA rechargeable batteries *
* 2 AA batteries are required for the extra Ir torch .
Digital Night vision is the future . With comparable optics to many Gen2 Nv sights but at a fraction of the cost and many extra benefits .
The Pulsar is usable in both the daytime and night, giving a very versatile scope which does not tie your rifle up for just night time only use unlike more traditional Nv units.
Available as an extra is the Yukon MPR which allows you to digitally record whatever the scope sees, which makes it great to record your hunting session .
We have a demo unit set up on an air rifle and buyers are welcome to view the performance by appointment .

  1. I have developed a new kit for the lens converter for Pulsar N550 and N750(I think).
    This kit assure a perfect aligment with the Pulsar N550 lens and the Pulsar or Sony lens converter, and it is impossible to move after shot, even with large calibers.
