Mick Garvey tests the new Pulsar Digisight Ultra N455 HD Night Vision Riflescope

Within minutes of handling the Pulsar N455 Digisight Ultra scope at the shot show in Las Vegas I knew it was a winner.

Although I’m a thermal user this superb Ultra night vision unit was undoubtedly going to give everything else a run for its money.

The new Digisight Ultra N455 features a state of the art High Definition sensor, delivering day and night performance with advanced features providing clear precise imagery via a 4.5x to 18x magnification which offers significantly higher resolution than the N355 Ultra, with minimal pixelation through the magnification range, thanks to the 1024x768 Amoled display and 1280x720 HD sensor. 

It is without doubt the best available digital night vision that I have handled and my 1st words of advice to anyone thinking about one is not to think for too long as these will be flying off the shelves as quick as they came in.

The new Digisight Ultra N455 with Wicked IR

The N455 Ultra shares the same control configuration as the popular xp and xq thermal scopes along with the same battery units, the usual video and photo capability are also  present along with improved sensors and magnification.

I’ve had the pleasure of using the new Digisight Ultra N455 for the last few days and I have to say it is pretty impressive. I have it coupled with my FX Impact and the wicked lights A51ir has been fitted in place of the provided and removable IR illuminator, which I have to say is not to bad itself easily id’ing rabbits out to 100 yards so perfect for Airgun use.

The Wicked Lights A51iR illuminator takes things up a notch and serves perfectly for distance spotting.

I’ll be putting all my thoughts and findings in the pages of Airgun World over the next couple of months and I predict that the 455 is set to become a huge favourite with airgun, rimfire and centrefire users everywhere.
