Pulsar just announced the release of their new APEX thermal weapon sights. It's an impressive offering for a thermal weapon sight series to start at $2,999. Right out of the gates I have noticed a few cool features and outlined them below. We still aren't anywhere near being able to give lead times or specs on available units. We just know that it's coming and it looks impressive!


Notable features
- The APEX can be powered externally AND send a video out signal for recording.
- Manual, Auto, and semi-auto calibration selections as well as noiseless calibration.
- 10 reticles
- 384x288 resolution cores
- Pricing starts at $2,999


Unknowns
- Will these units have adjustable brightness and contrast like the Quantum handheld units? If so, HUGE plus because you can control the image for all situations.
- What are the reticle options? With 10 reticles there should probably be one for ever user out there. Just curious as to what they are. Maybe they are similar to the N550A reticles here.
Features
- What models will be available in the US from the XD38, XD50, XD50A, and XD75?
- Are the displays LCD or OLED?

..Must Resist..... hammer

Here are some links to information on the scope. I have the handheld monocular version (HD38s) which uses the 384x288 French core Link to core info and I am really impressed with the quality of the image. The handheld mono has a manual focus which I am hoping they integrate into the APEX....

The screens are OLED (640x480)

The guy in the first vid appears to be focusing... up

Edit: Yes, you can see a hump on a focus ring on both vids. I think it is there...

Bearclaw. Just an FYI, the prices you mentioned above are incorrect. The prices are not in USD but in fact in British Pounds.


"Pulsar Apex XD38 Thermal Riflescope £3,299.00 each"

Sorry to burst ya'lls love bubble but you knew it wouldn't last long cheers

Overseas pricing is usually different than US pricing on Pulsar products.

The APEX pricing will be in US dollars as follows:
XD38A $2,999
XD50 $3,999
XD50A $3,199

lol laugh

But it doesn't make any sense. If I am a European customer, I can buy the same scope from the US for a lot cheaper and just pay the shipping. Why would anyone in the European market buy their scope locally and pay double the price?

lol I realized this right after I posted it. But still you would have some serious pissed off europeans who are paying more for a company that is based in europe and has a better market visibility than the US
