I’ll tell you what you want; what you really, really want. A riflescope that uses a micro channel plate multi-alkaline photocathode with a built-in power supply. Preferably one whose plate incorporates millions of short, parallel glass tubes. Lucky for you, the latest generation ATN Night Arrow6-2 is now available. The company claims it’s even more useful for shooting varmints at night. In theory. In practice, TTAG’s Nick Leghorn is set to test and evaluate the $1,599 scope in the dead of night. So to speak. Specs and product shot after the jump . . .

  1. Most of us will never have a location or opportunity to safely shoot in total darkness, but it’s still cool that Gen 2 night vision is finally coming down in price a bit. I’ve had a Gen 1 monocular for years now. It’s solidly built, but Gen 1 night vision is so vague and blurry that it’s really just a toy.
