About ATN Scopes

ATN night vision scopes are generally regarded as being quality high-end  optics equipment, and the company has received the glowing reviews to match.  Positive reviews of ATN equipment have been featured in a number of prominent magazines dealing with hunting, law enforcement or firearms; these include Guns & Ammo, Gun World, Tactical Response and S.W.A.T..  Despite their high-quality classification and wide range of products, ATN gear is also regarded as a budget-friendly brand for optics equipment.

ATN Scope Features

This company is known for its innovations in night vision in other technologies.  One of ATN’s product features is Smart Total Darkness Technology.  This feature uses an infrared illuminator, digital controls and a computerized proximity sensor to help streamline the night vision experience.  The onboard computer in the Smart system detects when the scope is being used, automatically turning itself on and off.  The device features an LED indicator which pulsates when the batteries get low, as well as a multicolored LED system to help users quickly note which  of the device’s modes they’re using.

ATN Night Vision scope

ATN scopes also use proprietary coatings, namely Everlight and Proshield, on their lenses.  The Everlight lens coatings help to provide clear images through multiple light variations, even in the event that there is too much light.  Proshield lens coatings contain materials designed to combat condensation, scratches, glare and static.  Another of ATN’s technologies is their trademark ATN White Phosphor Technology (or WPT).  This relies on black and white coloration in night vision equipment, rather than the traditional green.  This different coloration helps details appear sharper, provides better contrast and shading and helps increase wearers’ depth perception.

ATN products provide customers with several bonus features upon purchase.  First and foremost, most products come packaged in sturdy hard cases, which the company states have a $150 retail value.  These cases are unbreakable, airtight, inlaid with thick protective foam, corrosion proof and designed to meet military specifications.  Those ATN products that don’t come with a hard case receive a ballistic nylon case for storage or carrying instead.  Their product offering ships with an instruction manual, any necessary hardware or batteries, and/or gift boxes.  ATN also features a very good 2-year extended warranty.
