  • Now that I switched out the plates the ghost works really well as a helmet mounted monocular I mounted an IR flashlight to the side of my helmet which replaced the terrible built in IR illuminator now I have a much wider field of view.

  • Its always fun to see people snap a 2X nod on and walk into a hole and disappear. I would still get a gen2 rather than the gen1, by the experience I had with the 1x24 unit, you dont see much with even the lowest profile eye pro on. When I moved to gen3 I just never gone back, it gives you a bigger FOV and easier to see through conpare to gen1 tubes.

  • Hi great vid. Can I ask do you find the Rhino mount stable. I'm about to buy the 1x24 Ghost Hunter and need to get a mount and arm for my Mich but I've heard people say the original Norotos Rhino has significant wobble. Cheers.

  • SoCal-Milsim great review, but i have a question about the 2x lens, is it magnifying the 2x all the time or can you dial it from 1x to 2x, i was asking because i saw the 2 dail rings ,one for the eye, that you taped and the other ring for clafifying the image or setting the magnifying rate? since i don´t know i thougt i should ask because you said you where going to try to get the 1x24 lens insted.

  • Great review! Best I've found online so far. Could you do a video demonstration how you switched the mounting plate from one side to the other? Would be very helpful! Thanks!

  • Nice review!! You will like the 1x much better. Just an FYI you need to keep the factory lens cover with the peep hole on your unit when you are exposing it to light. If not it will degrade the tubes and cause damage. Get yourself a IR light you can mount to your helmet, you will like it much better.

  • UPDATE : I contacted Sightmark about replacing the 2x magnification lens and they were really helpful. They are sending me a new 1x lens for free and I will post an update on how it works with the new lens.

  • Good review on the monocular, as for the fogging issue get a military grade anti fog solution and use it before use of the monocular so it does not fog! Happy Holidays!
