Model: Thermosight RS
The Thermosight RS is FLIR's premiere rifle scope line specifically for hog hunting and varmint applications. This scope is available to any US citizen for an unbeatable price!
The Thermosight R-series are the newest rifle sights from FLIR Personal Vision Systems. These infrared scopes are the first thermal night vision rifle scope available to the public for under $3,500. FLIR has taken their years of experience with military grade weapon sights and brought it to the world of varmint and preadotr hunting.
The ThermoSight RS scopes are compact and easy-to-use, with a wide range of customizability to give you the best thermal optic for your specific use. Effective in zero-light environments, infrared technology will highlight animal's body heat against cooler backgrounds without any illumination or assistance. It uses a unique lens system to provide proper eye-relief to the user, and is available with magnificaitons anywhere from 1x to 16x power.
Designed for hunters looking to remove feral hogs or other varmints, the Thermosight RS offers the most affordable thermal rifle platform on the market. With a wide variety of lenses and detectors, the larger RS models are also appropriate for Police units and defense contractors looking to add thermal capabilities to their weapon systems.
Simply put, the RS scopes are designed to be the most effetive and most affordable thermal weapon sights on the market. They use simple but flexible reticles, sensible colour palettes, and are built tough enough to last a lifetime. You can tell that the RS was made for shooters: 3 inches of eye relief, glove-friendly buttons, and a wide diopter adjustment (±;6)
An internal propietary shock absorber makes these appropriate selections for .30 cal semi-auto rifles, but when combined with a Cadex Recoil Rail one could feasibly mount them even on larger calibers. An IPX7 rating means that the FLIR Thermosight RS could be submerged a meter deep in water for half an hour with no adverse effects. It's functional temperature is also covered all the way down to -20° C, a rarity for opto-electronics!
