Does anyone know if a Pulsar Challenger Gen3 night vision monocular can handle recoil? I see references to it online, but nothing actually showing people doing it. Actually, there is very little reviews on the Pulsar Challenger.

Dealer says if there are manufacturer made weapons mounts it would have to be 5.56 at least and that makes sense. I can't get to the gen3 version directly thru the pulsar site ... have to go around thru the back door ... so the gen3 version might not be fully released yet ... that's my guess anyway ...

Pulsar site does show 2 weapons mounts for the GS version ...

NV Challenger GS 1x20 DOS adapter | PULSAR

and

NV Challenger HS Adapter | PULSAR

So, I'd be hopeful.

But note, "gen3" does not mean pinnacle ...

My dealer has a call in to pulsar to validate ability to use with their shown weapons mounts. I'll try to toss in question about pinnacle as well.

I see the pinnacle on OP ... shown price $2700+ ... then MSRP of the "gen3" of $1999 on the Pulsar sight is more interesting from a price perspective. General prices for gen2+ pvs-14 work alikes is under $2k ...SNR 12-18 ... and maybe I'd rather have an actual pvs-14 housing, then one day, I might be able to upgrade to a pinnacle tube, if I started with a gen2+ tube. But should get some more answers from pulsar through dealer today and will post.

This Forum is really good!
I bought this PULSAR 1x20 also bought by my friends! Everyone is absolutely satisfied. A quality device, not expensive and good to see. We use additional IR-(850nm). We all put a DOS adapter on the rifles and that's how we use it. It is important that the optics be adjusted (preferably) 1.5 to 6x not larger than that. An ideal Pulsar device, we have been using it for a long time ...
My recommendations! ;) :p
