Re: Are there different brands of radar guns that police use?

The only potential points of contention if you decide to challenge a speeding ticket was if it was your vehicle that responsible for a speed reading in an area where there were multiple cars. These challenges are basically useless, because it is virtually impossible to actually prove that this was the case and the court tends to accept the testimony from the police officer as more authoritative. Another method is to have the officer prove that his radar gun was calibrated according to the schedule set-forth by the state. While this method sometimes worked in the past, officers today are generally well-trained in radar operation and follow proper procedures.

No it doesn't vary. The CPL makes no provision for discovery in traffic infraction cases only violations.

And by the way, there is no discovery in New York State for traffic infractions, so you're not entitled to any information about the equipment used.

I don't see really definitive answers on this issue anywhere.
Because you don't know how to look.

Google radar guns. You'll get a list.

Pick one then google brand and model with the word "reviews."

Beyond that, what is your issue?

If you want to beat a radar ticket google how to beat a radar ticket in NY.

Chances are that all the technical defenses have been overcome by now. If you are radar cited for speeding you might as well just pay the fine and take the insurance hit.

Or just one or two that dominate the business in New York.
