Night Vision | Gun Parts
If you are considering the purchase of a night vision device the advantages are unquestionable. Night vision makes it possible to see what you otherwise couldn’t. A flashlight may expose the intruder at the garage door. But then he knows you know, a confrontation will occur, or the intruder will flee, to possibly come back another night. GrabAGun offers a wide selection of night vision devices in our optics and mounts division, along with a tremendous inventory of gun parts and much more.
Night vision gives you an advantage by enabling you to see without being seen, providing you with the necessary time to call law enforcement. The intruder is arrested, and shouldn’t be coming back. Night vision also enables you to observe wildlife without startling them.
Many models have built-in IR illuminators, while others can be upgraded with IR illuminators to increase brightness and range. View our selection of night vision devices under the Optics tab.
Selecting a Night Vision Device
If you are looking at night vision goggles or binoculars select the unit that fills your needs in features, size and cost.
One of the most common questions involves the differences between the generations. All night vision devices work by amplifying available light, enabling you to see in conditions too dark for the human eye. The difference in the generations of night vision devices is in the technology and ability to intensify the image you are viewing. The higher the generation the better the image will be. GrabAGun offers all generations of night vision, as well as offering gun sales gun parts accessories and hunting supplies.
Generation I night vision devices (goggles, monocular and binoculars) uses an intensifier tube that amplifies ambient light by accelerating electrons and striking a phosphor surface.
Generation II night vision devices add a micro channel plate that multiplies the number of electrons before they strike a phosphor surface.
Generation III night vision devices (goggles, monocular and scopes) add a Gallium Arsenide photocathode which creates a significantly greater number of photoelectrons than a Generation II device is capable of. Gen III night vision is military grade.
Generation IV night vision is currently the most advanced night vision providing even greater visibility and the ability for target detection. GrabAGun offers generation III and IV gun scopes under the optics tab. Peruse our large selection of firearms, gun parts, archery supplies and much more.
Night vision devices are not created for magnification as binoculars and telescopes are. Most night vision devices offer from no magnification to a low 4x magnification. Night vision enables viewing in dark conditions, not long range magnification. Infra-Red (IR) will increase your viewing in even darker conditions.
The selection of a night vision device comes down to how clear an image you want to view. If your use is general recreational when you are camping, watching nature, hiking, surveillance, search and rescue or property management then a Gen. I will probably be adequate.
