The Alpha Optics AO-5516 is a professional grade Digital Day/Night Clip-On system intended to be used for short and medium-range engagements with any daytime optics. It provides excellent target acquisition and aiming capabilities for the demanding sport shooters, varmint hunters, or law enforcement and security professionals. Based on the high-sensitivity CCD array, the AO-5516 eliminates the traditional requirement of removing your existing day scope from your rifle, to replace it with a dedicated night vision sight (which would also involve re-zeroing). It simply mounts in front of your own standard day optical sight and allows to maintain consistent eye relief and shooting position.
The system is compatible with most commercial and military specification weapon sights, and fits any Picatinny, MIL-STD-1913, or Weaver rail via the quick-release mount. A detachable long-range IR illuminator allows the user to operate in total darkness and extend viewing range under poor visibility.
