We are attempting to identify all of the IR filters used with the Sniperscopes Models M1, M2, and M3. What we know of so far are shown and described below. Sorry the pics aren't better but they are utilitarian as opposed to display pics.

If you have something different please add to this thread with a description of what you have using the info format used for the 7 filters below. A pic or two of the markings would also be greatly appreciated but isn't a requirement.

Thanks much

Jim
