NVS 27

The NVS 27 is Newcon Optik’s most advanced night vision clip-on to date and represents a significant improvement on other clip-on systems currently available. Utilizing any of Newcon Optik’s XT, AG or AGBW IIT systems, this high-resolution unit is designed to mount in front of virtually any daytime riflescope. It differs from the competition in many ways, but primarily in its compatibility with day sight magnifications between 1x and 20x. As military and police shooters continue to use higher magnification day sights, this compatibility range provides a significant advantage in the field, enabling the use of most, if not all, of a given day sight’s magnification capability.

The NVS 27 was designed by shooters, and its extra wide field of view, manual gain control system and extended target detection range make it the world’s most complete night vision clip-on system.
