X-Vision Optics has just released the TR1, the company’s first thermal reflex sight.
X-Vision Optics recently began to dabble in thermal technology, already having released a thermal scope and monocular earlier this year. Now, the company has just released the TR1, a thermal reflex sight that’s suitable for both hunting and tactical applications.
The TR1 has a detection range of up to 1,000 yards and a recognition range of up to 500 yards depending on weather conditions. It also has a 1.63-inch AMOLED display with a 25 Hz frame rate, allowing it to smoothly track motion even at distance, an extremely important feature when engaging a moving target. To take advantage of the thermal reflex sight’s maximum detection range, the TR1 also features 1-4x magnification capabilities with unlimited eye relief, something that’s not possible with true, non-digital reflex optics. The image can be displayed in one of five color palette options as well.
Designed for field use, not just to be an expensive toy, the Thermal Reflex Sight was also built tough. It has an IP67 weatherproof rating and is dust and water-resistant, and the sight can withstand up to 53 foot-pounds of recoil energy. The TR1 also features a visible laser to assist with target acquisition and identification.
Other features of the Thermal Reflex Sight include its four different reticle styles and color options and its ability to save four different sets of zero data. These features combined with the TR1’s quick-release Picatinny mount make it possible to rapidly swap the device between four firearms (or crossbows) with different ballistic properties.
The whole unit weighs just over a half-pound, runs off a single CR123 battery and has a battery life of 3.5 hours. It has an MSRP of $1,999.99 and is available now.
