Does anyone own of the these? If so how do you like it as opposed to other models/manufacturers. I am looking into purchasing a thermal imaging scope and any input would be appreciated.

Thanks


You're gonna be good at what you practice, make sure you are practicing the right thing...

I own one and like it very much. It was only a few hundred more than the handheld version.....I use it as a handheld and scope.

Looked long and hard at them, but decided to go with NV scope(s) and a Thermal scanner. I was a cheapskate and bought the PS24, for ~$1,600. Waiting on two X-SIghts for weapons-mounts.

Was concerned that ID wouldn't be good enough with thermal, to take shots. I also wanted two scopes, which would have been spend with thermal or really good NV. So far, I'm liking my little PS-24. Haven't hunted with it yet, though...

And still waiting to see if the X-SIght is all it;s cracked up to be. If not, I'll likely go Pulsar or take the PVS-14 plunge.

Good call on the PS24. We usually end up using my RS32 as a handheld to locate and then use regular scopes with green lights for the shots.

If you can afford it, you probably really want to go with a bit more optical magnification than 1.25x, but then again, maybe everything you are doing is fairly short range and if so, then it would be fine.

Pulsar is coming out with the APEX in October that will be 1.9x and it will only go to double digital (so 3.8x), but it will be much less expensive as well. It might be a better option.

Armasight also has some low end scopes that might be to your liking as well. ATN certainly does has some low end scopes that might be of interest.

The one I am entertaining is the RS32 2.25-9x. Got a dealer thats willing to bring up 5 or 6 units for us to demo before purchase, really hoping I find one I like.

I own the FLIR RS 32 1-5, and love it. It is a game changer for night hunting. We were seeing mice running around the field about 30-40 yards away with it. I am a dealer, and sold the 2-9 to a friend of mine, and it has a little more clarity than the 1-5. I scan and hunt with it on 1x. If I need to go to 2x for a longer shot you can. But I mainly keep it on 1x for the increased field of view. I highly recommend these scopes.
