I should write an exposé on the X-Sight II, as I have used it for over 2 years. Alas, it is on its way to Steveoh, so he can get a first hand account.

Please do. I ain’t skeered.

Hi Alan,

I enjoyed your review and updates - your post is what prompted me to join this forum.  Thanks!

In the next few weeks I plan on picking up a new ATN X-Sight II 3-14 for night time raccoon/varmint control.

You'll enjoy it if you drop the internal battery idea, and use an external one. For the monies, the X-Sight II isn't all that bad, but quirky to be sure!

I can tell you, that the Pulsar is a much better night time scope, but does have issues in the daytime. And, it doesn't have all of the ballistic stuff, which is part of the drawback for the X-Sight II. The drawback for the Pulsar is cost! At almost three large, it is not a thrifty addition like the X-Sight II is.

I have an Omega compressor. If you're a fellow Guild member, and you pass through Roswell, NM, I'll fill your portable tank as a courtesy.

Alan,

I agree and would definitely get an external battery.

What's the Pulsar; can you provide a link or model #?  I have a .22 for dedicated for daytime use so the limited functionality in daytime might not be an issue (but the $3k might!  ;D).

Here is a link.

I didn't buy it from them, but I just as might have. Just about everyone has the same pricing.

The cheaper non IR scopes from Pulsar are good too, like the N750. They're a whole lot less.
