Armasight Vampire 3X CORE IIT Night Vision Rifle Scope Description

The Armasight Vampire Night Vision Rifles Scopes are built based on the latest Ceramic Optical Ruggedized Engine technology.  This CORE IIT was used in the Armasight Spark monocular which was released in 2012 and became a huge success. 


Due to this CORE technology, this Gen 1 rifle scope provides double resolution of a standard Gen 1 scopes.  In addition to the increased resolution, the Armasight Vampire 3X IIT CORE night vision rifle scope attachment has a flatter and clearer night vision image.  With photocathode sensitivity levels of upwards of 400μm/lm CORE devices approach Gen 2 quality at Gen 1 prices.


The body of the Vampire night vision rifle scope attachment is made from solid aluminum; the O-ring is sealed and rubber coated for further protection.


The Vampire NVRS is nitrogen-treated, has multicoated all-glass lenses and a manually-adjustable fine reticle that makes precise shot placement incredibly easy. This Armasight night vision riflescope is also water, dust, and sand-proof for increased reliability. Complete with tactical rails for lasers or illuminators (the high-power IR illuminator is included standard), the Armasight Vampire is ideal for anyone looking for a compact, sturdy, lightweight night vision riflescope.  This device is a great match for any tactical rifle.

Gen 1 Core Technology Night Vision


CORE™ Image Intensifier Tube

Thanks to the latest advancements in electro optical manufacturing Armasight redefines affordable high

performance night vision with CORE™ (Ceramic Optical Ruggedized Engine) Image Intensifier

CORE™ VS. Gen 1

Unlike Gen 1 Image intensifier tubes that are fragile by a virtue of being made from glass, CORE™ IITs

are made just like Gen 2 and Gen 3 by fusing metal alloys with ceramic compounds. CORE™ technology

is based on durable elements and allows tight component stacking, resulting in image tubes that are

exceptionally shockproof and vibration resistant. This makes CORE™ IITs ideal for weapon sight

application. Robust packaging envelop lacks easy-to-break protrusions common in Gen 1 tubes and

allows for streamline design of lighter, compact and more reliable night vision devices.

CORE™ platform offers best in class resolution with over 70 lp/mm, increased photocathode sensitivity

level in upwards of 400µm/lm and infinite (!) Signal to Noise (SN) providing image quality in prevalent

ambient light condition rivaling high end Gen 2 image tubes.

  • From John at 6/18/14 10:28 PM

    • Q: Can this be used in daytime also?

    • A: Hello, this scope can be sighted in during the day with the lens cap on, however, I would not recommend using the scope during the day otherwise. If you do decide to do so, with time your tube intensifier will burn out.

    • Q: When the intensifier does go out under warranty is that considered warranty. Also when not under warranty what would be the estimated cost for repairs. And lastly is there an average life expectancy on the tube as for as hours? Im looking hard and close to purchasing this unit unless you can recommend something with the CORE TECHNOLOGY Cheaper. Thanks n advance

    • A: Hi DJ.

      Yes, the intensifier tube is covered by the manufacturer warranty. However, if you caused the damage by overexposing it to bright light it would not be covered. Basically as always the warranty covers normal use. The cost of service after warranty period is hard to predict as everything depends on what is broken. The tube itself for a gen 1 is typically about half of the cost of the unit. Life expectancy of the tube is not available from Armasight but based on other Gen 1 units it is likely in 1500-2000 hour range.

    • Q: Hello, I have being looking into night vision scopes and was wondering what your shipping policies for Canada are? The scope I might be interested in is ARMASIGHT Vampire 3X “CORE” IIT Night Vision Rifle Scope and was wondering what the total cost plus shipping and duty would be if allowed to export to Canada?.

    • A: Hi. Canada is on the list of countries to which rifle scopes cannot be exported. The only solution we can offer are night vision clipons like ATN PS28. Thos are available in exportable generations 2ia, cgti, wpti.

  • From Ron Prruitt at 12/14/14 2:06 PM

    • Q: Is or are these scopes able to desern the whole animal and will be able to put the crosshait on a pigs vitals at night

    • A: Hi Ron. Night vision devices let you see the animal the same way you would see with a naked eye but in green color. Since much depends on ambient light, you may see better on some night and worse on others. Also, unlike thermal imaging, night vision depends on contrast. So if the animal is hidden in grass or bush, the scope will not help you see it. Bottom line is if you are an experienced hunter you should be able to place the shot in the right part of the animal using Vampire 3x Night Vision Riflescope.
