Preview: Pulsar Thermion XG50 Thermal Riflescope

Pulsar expanded its lineup of thermal optics in 2020, providing consumers with an incredibly powerful option in the form of its Thermion XG50 thermal riflescope. This all-new optic expands the range at which hunters can detect game and provides increased resolution, giving users more information about what they're seeing downrange.

The Pulsar Thermion XG50 thermal riflescope incorporates a 640x480 microbolometer strength and 12-micron pixel detail, which allows users to detect heat signatures at distances of up to 2,400 yards. The XG50 is the first thermal riflescope to combine a BAE sensor with on-board recording capability and the ability to provide multiple color palettes.

The on-board 1024x768 AMOLED display provides enhanced clarity, so shooters behind their preferred platform can be confident in identifying what's in their optic's window. The riflescope features viewing modes for rocks, forest and other terrain identification, and the unit features continual digital zoom. Another unique features in the XG50 is the incorporation of a defective-pixel repair feature, so your optic works to ensure peak performance at all times.

Despite being a thermal optic, the external profile of the Pulsar XG50 riflescope looks like many of today's traditional high-magnification optics. The 30 mm scope body accepts all traditional 30 mm rings, so shooters won't have any trouble mounting their optic onto their rifle of choice. The digital zoom ranges from 3-24X, giving users an incredible degree of flexibility in finding their target. The B-Pack mini 18650 lithium-ion battery on-board the unit provides up to 7 hours of continuous run time.

Durability is also a priority for this field-ready optic, so Pulsar ruggedized the construction of this digital optic, giving it the ability to withstand repeated recoil on guns chambered up to .375 H&H. The optic is capable of operating in environments ranging from -13 to 122 degrees Fahrenheit, is IP67 dustproof and can be submerged in 1 meter of water for up to an hour with no ill effects.

Suggested retail pricing on the Pulsar Thermion XG50 thermal riflescope is $7,199.96. For more information, visit pulsarnv.com.
