NEW Pulsar N550 Digisight Lens Conversion kit by Dr.Bob

At last a lens conversion kit available for the Pulsar N550 Digisight NV rifle scope!!

Dr. Bob, a company specialising in the manufacture of precision parts, produced a much needed lens conversion adaptor which enables a high quality Pulsar Gen 2+ 1.7x lens to be attached to the extremely popular Pulsar N550 Digital night vision weapon sight.
The Pulsar Gen2+ 1.7x lens produced far better results in a recent
test which included a Sony Camcorder 2x lens which some people have been using in DIY lens conversion kits.
By using the Pulsar 1.7x lens, the magnification is increased from 4.5x to 7.65x. This level of magnification provides much better target detail. The image quality is also enhanced due to the much higher level of light transmission when compared to a camcorder day lens. However, the degree to which the image quality is improved was not expected at first, however it is a welcome bonus.

The adaptor itself is precision made to fit solely in the cowling of the Pulsar N550. As the Pulsar N550 does not have any threading in the cowling to accommodate an attachment, the adaptor has been designed to fit in the cowling recess very tightly. You will know when it is securely in place because you will be aware of a very definite "click". There are 3 small grub screws in the adaptor in case you wish to tighten it further.
As the adaptor has been produced by Dr.Bob, the adaptor itself is not covered by a Pulsar warranty, however as long as you take reasonable care and follow the instructions to the letter, you won't have a problem.
In fact, it fits so well that you could easily use this conversion on Pulsar N550's fitted to larger caliber rifles such as .243.
Removing the adaptor from your N550 isn't an issue either as the level of force required to retract the adaptor is no more than it takes to fit on.

The Pulsar Gen 2+ 1.7x lens comes with its own flip up cover which renders the N550's lens cover is redundant when fitted with the lens conversion kit. However it can still be used in another way... If you have a Yukon MPR (Mobile Personal Recorder) for example, you can easily attach the MPR with the screen facing you to the back of the redundant N550 lens cover using a piece of velcro. This means the MPR unit doesn't have to be stored in your pocket when you are recording footage from the N550. This means it is easier to turn the recording capability on and off without having to search your pocket for the right button to press. The cable connecting the MPR to the N550 could also impede your movement and get in the way in certain circumstances if the MPR unit is kept in your pocket.
