ATN Aries MK 390 Paladin No hard case
The ATN Aries MK 390 Paladin (no hard case) is a 1st Generation night vision weapon sight. It’s designed for hunters and photographers. It’s compact and lightweight while also being a step above other 1st Generation night vision weapon sights in the clarity and brightness departments. The optical configurations are improved which ends up lowering the F-stop factor and increasing optical resolution. This weapon sight fits the bill if you’re looking for a reasonably priced weapon sight that mounts onto any U.S. standard 7/8" weaver or Picatinny rail.
The precision "red on green" reticle aiming system will be useful to all hunters. It will improve your aim and will always provide superior accuracy. A reticle brightness adjustor allows the Aries MK 390 Paladin to fit your needs. It’s these kinds of features that allow you to really make a device your own.
What this model lacks in power, it makes up for in durability and size. It’s a compact weapon sight that’s easy to transport. You don’t want a big device weighing you down when you’re trying to track your prey. It’s also extremely durable. The Aries MK 390 Paladin is water and fog resistant so you don’t have to plan your hunting season around the weather. A little rain won’t scare a deer away and it shouldn’t scare your equipment either.
This weapon device comes with a 450 mW detachable, long-range infrared illuminator. It provides your night vision device with a small light source so it can handle complete darkness. Other night vision devices can struggle without any ambient light. Thankfully, ATN’s Total Darkness Infrared System solves that problem. No matter what level of darkness you’re dealing with, this device is going to come through for you.
Bottom Line: The ATN Aries MK 390 Paladin (no hard case) is perfect if you’re looking for a 1st Generation night vision weapon sight.
