My RS32 1-5x will be here Monday! I will let you know a full report within a few days or week once I take it out! From talking to a few dealers that have taken the demo units out in the field, they are saying it is one of the best thermal scopes. The 60Hz refresh makes it worth it.

What did you think of it? Is it ok for 200-300 yard night hunting? I have a tall hill I can shoot out to 200-300 yards where the pigs cross right after dark. I can't decide if I want to put it on my 300 blk out or AR-10 308.

Detection at 2-300 was fine but I don't think it would have been able to clearly discern shot placement..
This was just the handheld
Perhaps the scope is better

The RS-32 1.25-5X has the 320 core with a 19mm lens, the RS32-35 2.25-9X has the 320 core with a 35mm lens.

The 35mm lens will add significant range, resolution, and clarity above and beyond what is provided by the PS-32's smaller 19mm lens, however the FOV will be reduced.

The 35mm lens system should allow targeting out to 250 yards under most climate situations, while the 19 mm lens should provide out to 175 yards.

The RS32 models have 1/2 the FOV of the RS64 models with the same size lens.

It will be a nice hog getter for sure.

Hope this helps.

Thought I would pass along...ordered this from Opticplanet.com....was going to order online but called as I had a few questions...long story short I was able to get it for $4K flat. I was asking some general questions about sales taxes and guy asked me if I wanted him to check if the price was lower than the online order. Of course I said yes...he said he could sell for $4,100....I asked if he could do it for under $4,000...he checked and came back that he could do for $4,000 flat with no taxes since its shipping out of IL and no shipping cost....great deal.

You bought the RS-32 35mm for $4k out the door?

That's pretty good price....
