(english accent) Oh Dear!

Recommended Posts

Ok...I have this friend, named uuummm, John, er, no...Bob!

Alright, so Bob may have an opportunity to try get his hands on a .308 Win military-style semi-auto rifle setup and geared towards longer range shooting, prior to most people being able to lay their hands on one of these rifles.  It has most everything a person would want Santa to stuff in their stocking...except glass!

Initially Bob was wanting to get a fine and reputable 30mm scope, with a starting magnification of no more than 3.5 and side parallax adjustment.  Mounted in one of the super-duper QD style one-piece mounts.  The ability to add a sunshade on both ends is a plus, and a fine lighted ranging reticle would be okay too, with a reputation to be able to take the unintentional bash or two and still be on target.

Then the voices started...

"A rifle like that needs niiiiiiiight viiiiiiiision....niiiiiight viiiiiision."


So there are the questions.  What would you choose for optics?  What is available to the general public in the night vision genre these days?
