Note: This product is currently discontinued.

When it comes to rifelscope technology, there’s no better time to be alive than now. The past few years of optic innovation, and the technological advancements are a flurry of rocket-sciencey goodness. Furthermore, we get to reap the benefits.

Pulsar is widely considered the consumer-thermal and night-vision industry leader in feature-rich, high-definition imaging. So, assigning “flagship” to a specific optic model is a bit challenging. As the term relates to recoil-rated firearm-mountable optics, three claim the top spot in their respective rights — Thermion XP50, Thermion XG50, and Trail 2 LRF XP50.

If you’re looking for quality comparable to Trail 2 models but at more affordable price points, look no further than this series. The Pulsar Thermion XP50 Thermal Riflescope ($5500) is the most popular flagship thermal riflescope in Pulsar’s lineup.
