The Armasight Vampire is built using our new, proprietary CORE (Ceramic Optical Ruggedized Engine) image tube, which includes double the resolution of Gen 1 devices. This provides flatter, clearer night vision images. The CORE™ platform offers ‘best in class’ resolution with up to 70 lp/mm, and increased photocathode sensitivity levels of upwards of 400μm/lm, providing image quality that rivals that of high-end Gen 2 image tubes, even in challenging ambient light conditions.
The body of the unit is made from solid aluminum; the O-ring is sealed and rubber coated for further protection. Like all Armasight scopes, the Vampire is nitrogen-treated and comes complete with batteries, a soft carrying case, a user manual, and all necessary hardware for solid mounting to a standard 7/8” Picatinny or Weaver-style rail. The Vampire has multicoated all-glass lenses and a manually-adjustable fine reticle that makes precise shot placement incredibly easy. This Night Vision riflescope is also water, dust, and sand-proof for increased reliability. Complete with tactical rails for lasers or illuminators (the high-power IR illuminator is included standard), the Armasight Vampire is ideal for the predator hunter, tactical marksmen, or anyone looking for a compact, sturdy, lightweight night vision riflescope.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well built scope with phenominal clarity. With a Texas full moon and no additional lighting,I can image coyotes @ 75 yards. With the included IR source and a moonless night,I can image coyotes @ 150 yards. I have a second added IR source that offers greater detail @ 150 yards.This scope goes beyond my expectations.
