At long last the xsight is shipping and I am on the pre order list , I plan to post a full unboxing here when it arrives . For those who have not heard of it , its a day and night scope the NV is regular green or WP

Very interesting. Seems like a lot of horsepower to pack into a scope given the relatively low price point. If it works, it's great value for the money. Tagged for further interest.

I was suprised that it was not locked under ITAR ...hence the reason that I pre-ordered .

Do you look thru glass or at an LCD?Is it a purely electronic viewfinder?

Yah, exactly this! Very curious to see real world video and NV.

Wait a minute! This scope goes through ITAR regs, but a kit that makes my 10/22 simply LOOK like a classic tommy gun is blocked? WTF?

Cheers!

I would say its LCD screen much like NVG's ,and the reason that its not on the ITAR ban list is it has not been adopted by the US military as its fresh off the production line

Any idea when you will have it in your hands?

ATN is Sold by a number of Canadian Dealers. This item looks like it uses camera tech. Not hardcore Military Tubes.

Wolverine supplies is who I ordered it from , so however long it takes to ship to them and then to me ... ATN posted on Facebook that shipping started on Oct 27th ...so a few weeks I would say .

So it likely is export controlled to a lesser extent. I'll bet Wolverine is getting them from ATN with consent from the Dept of Commerce.

Neat concept. But I'm still wary of these smart rifle concepts. Let us know how you like it when it gets in!

. . . I wonder what the eye relief and recoil rating are like?

I'm not so sure this falls under the Smart rifle group as its aday/night scope with a few extra features . I know the one you talking about with the tracking softwere . I'm no so keen on that myself .

Any updates? I was just thinking I might mount one on a .22 for some fun rat patrol duties. :D

Nothing as of yet , I figure ATN will ship the bulk to the US first and then take care of international orders

I wonder if that's legal here in bc - there's the law against 'hunting with electronics', this is kind of grey for me. If you're going to do that might want to just check with the CO's how they read that, they'll likely have thought about night vision stuff already.

Ya I'll get right on that. :p. I can't find rats in the hunting regs....
