The Phantom Night Vision Riflescope is specifically designed to cover all the requirements for modern night hunting.
It is highly water resistant (rated IPX6) with a gas filled optical channel, and can be used in precipitation of any intensity.
The gas filled channel protects the optics and internal cavities of the riflescope from condensation that may be caused by temperature difference or higher humidity. The design of the body and a reinforced component tube ensures the scope is shockproof, even when using heavy recoil cartridges such as 9.3x62, 9.3x74, 375H&H and the like.
The Gen II+ tube with automatic brightness adjustment, along with a high aperture lens, provides a sharp and clear picture. The high light gain constant allows hunting, even in situation of critically low night illumination (down to 10-4 lx – “night sky in clouds”). The problem of choosing a reticle also has been solved effectively. With the Phantom, the user can choose the most suitable configuration of the reticle and change it by simply pressing of the button. The voltage stabilization system eliminates risk of the reticle shift, even with almost discharged battery.
The user can choose from one of three reticles that suits the specific situation best and switch it by a simple push of a button. Blinking of the reticle means that the battery should be replaced within 15-30 minutes. 26158T and 26168T feature a Mil-Dot reticle. A Weaver 7/8” rail on the left side of the body can be used for attaching various accessories such as an additional and more powerful IR-illuminator, a laser pointer, a directional microphone and similar. Main controls are on top of the upper board, avoiding accidental changes of setup parameters.
Duplicates the “on/off” function, and IR illuminator for quick start up of the scope and IR illuminator (the device works only when the button is kept pressed). This is very convenient in order to find the appropriate position, take aim and shoot.
The objective lens has a quantified focusing mechanism with fixation on 100m range. This allows you to get a sharp image at any distances within the working range.
The riflescope can be powered with one AA (1.5V) or CR123 (3V) battery. The power supply unit with a voltage stabilization system ensures all functions continue to work correctly, even when the battery is nearly empty.
Objective Lens Cap
The cap is fastened on a rigid plastic ring dipped into the groove on the objective of the covering. This prevents the cap from detaching and becoming lost. There is no need to remove the cap when viewing or shooting; you can simply slide it back and fix anywhere on the objective housing.
The riflescope is equipped with a powerful IR illuminator with focusable light spot which can be adjusted from a concentrated beam to a diffused one.
The fast start up of the riflescope and IR is very convenient when constant observation is not conducted and quick target acquisition is required. In this case the riflescope works only when the button is kept pressed.
This Phantom riflescope has a Weaver Long mount, as well as the universal adapter allowing the Phantom to be installed onto different types of rifles with the help of Kilik Feintechnik (MAK®) mounts.
