I think I have a winner in this newly released version of the Sightmark Wraith. Looking forward to getting it zeroed on a couple of different rifles and going to work on the varmint population.

This is just what the Southern hog hunter has been asking for. With exactly twice the FOV as the Wraith 4x HD, this is a clear winner for guys who aren't shooting 150+ yards all the time.

I didn't record any footage because frankly, it would be boring as heck. I did sight in the Wraith 2-16x28 today on my M&P 15-22 for varmint work around the house and barns and two profiles for my 25-45 Sharps. One profile is for the 70 grain SBK and one for the 87 grain Speer Hot Cor. The one shot zero didn't work very well for me, as the adjustments tended to move the POI much farther than expected it to several times. I know how it's supposed to work and to a degree it does but the initial movements for each profile kind of slung the POI around instead of nudging it over. Once I got the POI close to what I was wanting, the adjustments were easier to manage. I should have eyeball bore sighted each profile when starting like I would a regular scope. It would have saved me a heck of a lot of 200 yd round trips. Once I got the scope set for each profile, I turned it off and removed it from the rifle. I remounted it, turned it back on and selected the appropriate profile and the scope did very well retaining POI. Switching from rifle to rifle does not seem like it will be a problem. I am really looking forward to cooler weather and getting my feeders going. More than likely, the coons will be pounding the feeders soon after and I will be dealing death with the Wraith. Also, between the Wraith and my Flir PTS233, the coyotes around here are in serious trouble.

I'm just about to buy one online and noticed the new 2x version. Came to THF to see if anyone knew anything about it and you guys are already discussing.

Bar-D, what do you think the max range is for the 2x version? Is the FOV worth the trade off in distance?

For what it's worth, my opportunities to shoot over 150 yards are fairly limited but there are a few 150+ shots that come up.

I ordered a 4-32x50 originally and after looking around at where I would be shooting with it, I was afraid the 4x magnification would be too much. A week after I bought it, the 2-16x28 was released. I sent mine back and traded for one and am glad I did. The FOV is a great tradeoff in my opinion. I think 150 yds is doable but you might consider a more powerful IR illuminator. I have an aftermarket one that I will use for longer shots. With the right IR, I don't think 200 yds + would be any problem at all.

This is excellent,
I was looking elsewhere on opinions on the smaller versions vs the original 4-32x56mm ones, and couldn't find much. I felt that the 2-16 may be better suit for where I would be able to find hogs (piney woods near SHNF) vs open crop land.

I didn't know pig popper from youtube was here !! Love your videos
