The ATN Night Arrow is a powerful night vision weapon sight that can be easily mounted to any standard weaver rail. Carefully designed to have a nice matte black finish that will not be reflective (excluding the lens), it is a very low profile night vision sight and can serve a wide range of tactical functions.


The ATN Night Arrow offers Total Darkness Infra Red, making it easy to switch to Infra Red in situations where there is basically no external light to amplify. Anyone with an interest in a night vision weapon sight that can offer them a quality resolution, a rugged yet lightweight build, and the functionality that Total Darkness IR offers them should consider the ATN Night Arrow. It is available in a wide variety of magnifications and image intensifier units, depending on your personal tactical needs.


The model that you are currently looking at is the ATN Night Arrow 4-2, which offers a Generation 2+ image intensifier unit with a resolution of 40/45 lp/mm. It also offers a magnification of 4x.

It is designed to use a single AA battery, making it an efficient and economical choice in night vision as well.


On top of all of its other quality functionality, it also has both Automatic Brightness Control and Bright Light Cut Off. These features make it a night vision weapon sight that can be safely used in situations that may end up producing larger amounts of light. Both Automatic Brightness Control and Bright Light Cut Off are ways that your night vision weapon can adjust itself or even shut itself off if there is too much light and it could damage your night vision lens. These features will help your ATN Night Arrow’s longevity and protect it from damage.

Gen 2 Night Vision

Please note that most high end night vision devices are built per order.  It may take 3-5 days or more for your order to ship.  If timely shipping is important to you, please, contact us to verify availability prior to ordering.

2nd generation is primarily used by law enforcement or for professional applications. This is because the cost of a 2nd Gen. unit is approximately $500.00 to $1000.00 more then a 1st Gen. The main difference between a 1st and a 2nd generation unit is the addition of a micro-channel plate, commonly referred to as a MCP. The MCP works as an electron amplifier and is placed directly behind the photocathode. The MCP consists of millions of short parallel glass tubes. When the electrons pass through these short tubes, thousands more electrons are released. This extra process allows 2nd generation units to amplify the light many more times then 1st generation giving you a brighter and sharper image. 2nd Gen. IIT standard 2nd generation tubes are high quality with exceptional brightness and resolution. Each tube has a micro channel plate, multi-alkaline photocathode with built-in power supply.

2nd Gen. IIT Features:

• Photo Cathode type: Multi-Alkali
• Resolution from 40 to 45 lp/mm
• Signal-to-Noise Ratio from 12 to 20
• 5,000+ hour tube life

Delivery Time and Manufacturing Process for ATN Night Arrow 4 - 2 Night Vision Weapon Sight:

Most of our manufacturers do not keep products like ATN Night Arrow 4 - 2 Night Vision Weapon Sight assembled on the shelf. Night Vision tubes are kept separate from the body of the unit. When the order is placed, the manufacturer starts the order processing and assembly process which includes the following:

  • Order processing - we collect all the necessary information including address and phone numbers. We also make sure that our customer ordered the correct product for their needs and that the product can be exported by US law to the country of destination. In some cases a signed export compliance form is required.
  • QC - in this step the manufacturer will inspect all individual parts which will be used to assemble the night vision device for any defects.
  • Production & Assembly - during production, all the parts are put together. Night Vision tubes in inserted into the body of the unit and all the complex electronics for the device are connected. This process takes place in a special lab called the "clean room" as even a small speckle of dust can cause undesired optical effect.
  • QA - one the night vision device is assembled, it goes through a rigorous testing process to make sure it meets all the expected specifications and all parts function as expected. For this most manufacturers have a special "dark room" designed to allow testing of the units without causing incidental damage to the night vision tube by exposure to bright light.
  • Packaging - this is a key process as well. In most case your night vision device will be shipped to you directly from the manufacturer but sometimes needs to be sent to us first. In either case items need to be packaged securely to avoid any kind of damage during transportation.
  • Shipping - as described above items will most of the time ship from the manufacturer. For most domestic orders (unless shipping to POB or AFB) a premium shipper like FedEx or UPS will be used.

Only by following the above steps can we along with our manufacturers bring you - our customer - night vision products of highest quality, However as you can understand the above process can take several days to complete. For example if your device fails QA, the entire process restarts. Also at QC stage a manufacturer may realize that the tube they have in stock has a defect and a replacement tube needs to be ordered. Due to the complexity of this process, it is prudent to expect 3-4 business days for production and handling of the purchased device. Keep in mind that this process is designed to guarantee your satisfaction with the night vision device of your choice.  It occasionally possible to expedite the process for urgent orders but addional fees or other restrictions may apply.

  • From Scott Flowers at 8/30/18 3:41 AM

    • Q: How does the night arrow 4 -2 compare to the ATN 4 k pro, and why is there such a big difference in price. Thank you for your time.

    • A: hi Scott.

      ATN 4k Pro is a digital night vision scope which can be used at night or during the day. The way it works is similar to how night mode works on the camcorders. Night Arrow is an analog night vision scope which operates on a night vision tube. Night vision tubes are much more expensive than the digital variations hence the difference in price. There a difference in how the image feels. Digital devices feel like you are looking into a n lcd, while the analog feel more like looking through regular optics. Other than that you can probably get similar range performance from the two units.
