Have a look at the DL Compact, it’s made from an AO 4-12x40 rifle scope, the cool thing about this one is that the turrets are fully functional and the DL Ranger has a rangefinder attached, so never miss the target again.
Below are the build instructions and schematics, please feel free to use any ideas and buy some parts to build one from our shop. Please do not however use this information for commercial use.
Menu joystick mounted on side for OSD functions & reticule design.
The “DL Compact / Ranger”
Adjustable turrets, this can make zeroing easy, just like a normal scope, you can also adjust the reticule in the OSD menu.
This can be fitted with the latest sony camera, great resolution and low LUX
Video out is a must if you like to show off your latest hunting skills or target practice!
Rangefinder works day or night and zero’s to your scope crosshair
12x fixed magnification with AO focus, this will give you a sharp image day or night with no IR phase shift ( no blurring )
AAA batteries x3 can be re-chargeable types, not only that you can swap out the batteries very quick and not have to worry about re-charging the whole unit halfway through a hunt.
High res 640 x 480 colour screen, same one used in the EDNV and Dark light.
IR cut filter, this is for day time use to keep the colours vibrant, unscrew for night shooting.
Please watch the Video for a demo of this custom rifle scope, more video’s can be seen throughout the site. This one is of the darklight but has the same camera and functions as the DL Compact
