The Thor LT. Good news is, it doesn't have many technological features so maybe it won't be a glitchy POS. Ya'll wanna be prostaff? They'll hire anybody with a pulse.

I seent that. May still work for what I do, but I'm medically unable to operate an ATN device. It's impossible to use the buttons with both middle fingers sticking up at their logo.

The real issue is that one can never trust in their good intentions and legitimacy.

Since they tried to build their own tech. vs license something that works, they've not been able to build anything worth a flip.

I can find them some pro staff if they are giving out free scopes.


It is far more important to be able to hit the target than it is to haggle over who makes a weapon or who pulls a trigger.

What's the point of pro staff if you never listen and respond to their feedback?

I saw this at SHOT Show - didn't look bad at all. But its was only for 5 mins.. So do not know how it works int he field. Wouldn't use it past 100-150 yards max though - and no way to ID past that distance for sure with the 160 res. No extras to bog up the scope an turns on in about 3 seconds. But time will tell how it does in the field for the masses.

There same as every year. Visiting with booths videoing whats coming out. Impressed with the new lines from Pulsar and Sightmark. Also some sweet rifle options.. AND A REALLY Sweet digital trigger which is going to be awesome. (switch from 5 lbs, to 1lbs to binary with a puch of a button)

I saw it for about 30 seconds and wasn't overly impressed but I learned many years ago to never trust impressions of NV and thermal optics from inside a convention center. Without getting into a lot of details yet, we will probably be doing some 100% non-holds barred testing of these and some other ATN units for The Late Night Vision Show. And to be clear, by intentional choice, I do not sell ATN thermal and haven't for many years, so these reviews will have no negative effects on my sales, so they will be as unbiased as possible in the favorable direction of the scopes, if that makes sense.

I think it going to be an OK thermal for the money. Don't expect any great performance past 100-150 yards

I agree, night time hogs are 50 to 100 yards anyways.
Optics Planet has them for $1199, with a 11% discount, free shipping and free returns.
