Thermal scope best optics


Trigger Mike

Recommended Posts

I have a Flir that has a few years on it and it does ok, but not great.  The other night my son and I were running deer out or our soybean crop and saw something in a tree and never could tell if it was an owl or a possum.  I want something that has better definition of what I am seeing.

Do you want a viewer or a weapon mounted scope??   I am sure you don't want to spend the money for an L3 or the like.  Probably the best optics for reasonable money $5-7K  are from:   IR Patrol  IR Hunter MK III or the HALO LR.   High end thermal runs about $10-13K still.

Sadly descent thermal is still expensive. Consumer add ons like video, etc. just take money from the real purpose. Quality components. You are much better off getting a scope without all the stupid stuff.  All you really need is something to look through, not something to post your stuff on youtube, facebook, etc.

If you are just looking for an imager  try looking at these:

Amazon has a bunch:

We had a Snap On unit at work that we paid $1500 for and the Milwaukee unit  was just as good.
