The Argus rifle scope night vision system is now available with the latest Generation 3 filmless tube. Research innovators have now perfected the latest step in night vision technology by removing the ion film barrier within the night vision tube. Previous attempts at removing the film were inaccurately dubbed as “Generation 4” technology by a major company within the industry. In truth, the U.S. military contract was terminated because the process left the tubes too fragile for normal use. Now that the manufacturing process has been perfected, a robust Generation 3, filmless tube is available. The result is a more crisp image with less “halo effect” around bright lights, greater light sensitivity, and generally a greater signal-to-noise ratio. If there truly was an official “Generation 4” designation, this would be it.
The 4x, D-740 gated night vision weapon scope is a true performer with years of a proven track record and experience. It’s updated with the latest developments in night vision technology, including the integration of a gated power source. Gated scopes come with a quality control performance data sheet directly from the tube manufacturer. This version of the D-740 utilizes a white phosphor tube which projects in black and white. Gradations of black and white are preferred over the traditional green color by many who report the new white phosphor tubes are less straining to the eyes during extended viewing and users are able to detect a greater range of detail and contrast over green. The rugged design utilizes space-age materials to reduce weight and improve recoil resistance.
The scope is encased in a waterproof, purge-capable housing and is constructed of high-grade multi-coated Optics with manual gain control and a quick-release, throw-lever mount. With guaranteed zero retention on medium caliber weapons (including .308 caliber), these are the systems of choice for Military and Law Enforcement professionals.
Available in high performance Generation II+ and state-of-the art Generation III in the traditional green tube color or with or without a filmless tube, the D-740 is also covered by a two-year limited warranty.
