New: Noblex NV G Reflex Sight
Noblex, also known under the Doctor Optics name brand of optics, has just released the NV G, the latest model in its reflex sight family. Based in Germany and known for its binoculars and rifle scopes, the company also make thermal imaging devices and reflex sights.
The first thing that will stand out with the new Noblex NV G reflex sight is the large field of view, with the sight window 66 percent larger than comparable red dots for a better view of the target.
The red dot is a 3.5-MOA one that can be manually adjusted from the side buttons, which are easy to acquire. Noblex states that the optical system has been newly developed to create a sharply contoured red dot. The glass surfaces have been treated with a high performance anti-reflective coating, allowing maximum transmission. The red dot is extremely bright because of the use of a partially permeable spectral coating on the inside of the main lens. In addition, the special hydrophobic coating allows dirt and rain to bead up and roll off the lens.
Elevation and windage adjustment is metric, with 360 centimeters of adjustment for elevation at 100 meters, and 270 centimeters for windage at the same distance.
Noblex rates the battery life at 2,000 hours using the CR2032 button cell battery. The battery mounts under the optic, requiring you to remove the optic to replace the battery. The unit uses the same footprint as the Vortex Viper and Venom for mounting. It is described as being watertight and weighs 1.27 ounces without mounting accessories. Dimensions are 46 mm x 32 mm x 31.4 mm, with a sight window of 25 mm x 20 mm and listed as being parallax free out to 40 meters.
With the large window and the brightness of the red dot, it was extremely easy to acquire the sight picture when it was mounted on a Volquartsen Mamba-X upper. In the bright sunlight it was still easy to see and had no issues on the longer distance plates at the Steel Challenge Match that I shot with this setup.
