I bought the HPT. Let me start by saying that this thing is CLEAR. I paired it with a Streamlight Super Tac IR and was easily identifying coyotes and deer and 400+ yards (not just eyes or silhouettes but differentiating bucks from does, etc.). The IR that comes with it is fair but I suggest an upgrade to really see what this scope can do. I have looked through a few gen 3 optics and this definitely on par or better than the ones I have seen. The weight of the scope is what you would expect from any other dedicated night vision scope (pretty freaking heavy). The controls are all easy to locate in the dark. The reticle is good (I prefer the dimmer settings because it is too heavy/thick at brighter settings). Battery life is as expected (be prepared to run through some cr123's). All in all, my opinion is that if you are in the market the HPT is an awesome choice. After my buddy saw mine he is selling his Nemesis 2+ HD and getting the HPT.
On another note, the website says that it ships from the manufacturer. This is not the case. There is a middleman supplier that is obviously not that concerned with small orders (Sports South LLC). I waited the two weeks and then called to inquire about a tracking number and was informed that the scope was on backorder for 6 weeks. So I called ATN and was informed that they had plenty of them in stock and had for some time. Either way, after some back and forth, I ended up getting the scope about 6 weeks after I ordered. I'm impatient so this is kind of aggravating, especially when Bass Pro tells me that they have had this problem with them before. I suggest a change in logistics.
