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. The Alpha Optics AO-5516 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 Alpha Optics 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 Alpha Optics AO-5516 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.
