The Hikmicro Alpex A50TN night vision rifle scopes are made to provide effective night vision capabilities without disrupting the classic look of a traditional scope.
This digital scope is equipped with very interesting features that have clearly been well thought out.
Day & Night
The Alpex A50TN is a night vision scope that can also be used during the day.
During the day the Alpex gives a clear color image and in the twilight/night you can switch to night mode.
When it is really dark, the supplied infrared lamp can be used to illuminate your surroundings.
This lamp has multiple brightness settings, and the light can be bundled to save power.
With has a wavelength of 940nm. This higher wavelength is known in the infrared spectrum for causing the least amount of red glow compared to the 850nm.
A very interesting feature is that this lamp uses rechargeable batteries (it comes with a universal charger itself).
Some other brands come with lamps that cannot use rechargeable batteries due to the voltage.
This IR lamp comes with a QD (Quick Detach) mounting.
This means you do not have to remove the lamp with tools when you are not using it, and you have the lamp back on the viewer in a second.
The lamp is in a round clamp so that the lamp can also be adjusted in position and angle on the aiming point of the viewer.
The Alpex has an optical magnification of 3.5x.
This scpoe can adjust this magnification in increments of 1x, 2x, and 4x by means of the adjustment knob on the side.
As a result, this rifle scope has a total magnification of 3.5 - 7x - and 14x.
One Shot Zero (Freeze & Zoom)
Zeroing this rifle scope is surprisingly simple.
The one-shot zero system has already been applied to many digital rifle scopes, but the Hikmicro Alpex goes just a step further with the Freeze & Zoom feature.
With this system you simply shoot at a shooting card and freeze the image.
Then use the buttons to adjust the cross to the meeting point.
Save the adjustment, and your next shot will hit the bull's eye!
Up to 12 hours Battery life
You must have a very long shooting session to drain this battery-system.
The Alpex A50TN is equipped with an internal rechargeable battery and has a compartment for an extra CR123A 3V battery.
(Note: RCR123A rechargeable batteries are 3.6-3.7 volts and should not be in used)
This allows you to easily add extra battery life to the viewer if it is almost empty.
Thanks to this feature, you can always be sure of a working viewer by simply keeping a few extra batteries on hand.
Thanks to the internal battery, the scope does not need to be turned off when replacing the extra battery.
Image and sensor
The most important is of course the visual quality of the Alpex.
The Alpex has a surprisingly good image both during the day and at night thanks to the internal image enhancement software that removes purple fringes and even estimates the density of fog to clear the fog veil during foggy conditions.
Thanks to the 50mm objective that projects onto a 1920x1080 sensor (2mp) in combination with the OLED display, the viewer provides a high-contrast image with many details.
The Alpex has a field of view of 7.7 x 5.8 degrees.
The Alpex A50T 940 nm IR night vision scope has an internal memory of 64 MB to store images, but HikMicro also offers an app to stream, download and send images.
Hikmicro has made a very nice night vision scope where it is clear that the small details have really been taken care of.

- Picture in picture (PIP)
With the PIP system you can turn on a small extra screen in the viewer with a zoomed image of the reticle.
This allows you to take a detailed shot, without zooming in and reducing the FOV.
- Built-in rangefinder
The built-in rangefinder uses the height of the target (you have to enter this yourself in the viewer).
By aiming at the top and bottom of the target, the Alpex's built-in gyroscope calculates the distance to the target using the angles.
- IP67 Waterproof
- Crosshair styles
The reticle of the Alpex A50TN is customizable in colors and styles in different groups.
