TrackingPoint, makers of electronically enhanced, precision guided firearms is adding new capability to their line of rifles (press release follows). Their new night vision kit, which will fit most of their existing guns, will give you “gen2-like” see-in-the-dark capability. Of course, it won’t come cheap.
