Armasight Vampire 3X CORE Night Vision Rifle Scope - Open box 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, Armasight Vampire 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 scope 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.

    • Q: Can this scope be used during daylight?

    • A: Hi Chad. Armasight Vampire is an analog night vision scope. It can only be used at night. We do carry some digital night vision scopes which can be used both during the day and night. These models include ATN X-Sight and Sightmark Photon as well as a more powerful Armasight Drone. Please let us know if you have any further questions.

    • Q: Is this a Gen 3 scope?

    • A: Hi Kelly.

      Armasight Vampire 3x CORE is a special kind of Gen 1 scope. It has a much higher resolution and image clarity than a standard Gen 1. However, by no means is it comparable to a Gen 3 scope in terms of brightness of the image. With night vision, as with most things in life, you should pick the cheapest item that satisfies your needs. So buying a Gen 3 scope is not always the best option. If you are hunting in a range of 120 yards, Armasight Vampire will do a great job for a fraction of the cost of a Gen 3 scope.

  • From themuddster at 10/19/16 4:24 AM

    • Q: In looking at the Armasight Vampire 3X Core, it states that it comes with a quick release. What degree of accuracy is lost when re-mounting the scope ? is the point of aim/point of impact w/I 2" - 3" at 100m ? I know that any degree of accuracy is based on the shooter, length of barrel and quality of loads, so that being said has there been any R & D where the scope has been dismounted, re-mounted and fired from a bench to get a general idea of what the degree of accuracy is ?

      As stated in my previous email, the scope I select will be mounted on an 8.5" barreled, suppressed .300 BLK built on the AR platform. I am using a BCM Key-Mod foregrip which offers numerous mounting options for iron sights, such as slightly off-set from the scope, so if need be, I could mount my sights in the 'roll-over' configuration, though it is not ideal.

    • A: Hi.

      The purpose of the quick mount is to preserve the zero, but as you said, much depends on specific setup. We cannot provide an exact measure of accuracy. You may want to contact Armasight to get an official statement from them.
