Carl Bruce, a patent lawyer with Fish and Richardson, came out to Big 3 East to show off the Torrey Pines T10 thermal sight. Torrey Pines is one of his clients. I was sitting at the wood benches, eating Sonny’s BBQ and mentioned the tiny thermal sight that was announced last Shot Show. Then one of the guys at the table pointed to Carl and said he has them. I immediately went over to Carl and asked if I could see the T10 sight.
The T10 is very small. You can see it mounted on my CZ Scorpion Evo 3. It is only slightly larger than my Burris Fastfire III.
You can see the predator like vision of the T10.
According to Carl, the T10-M has an aiming reticle. You can see the rectangular reticle on the screen below. Torrey Pines Logic claims the T10-M has a 120m range.
The T10 thermal sights are the cheapest weapon mounted thermal sight on the market. The only thing cheaper would be a FLIR iPhone case but then you would have to figure out how to mount an iPhone to your weapon. The T10 are $499.99 – $699.99 depending on which model you choose.
Having it mounted to the Scorpion, I did find it a little difficult to get used to the small screen and close focal depth. My eyes have to focus on the screen and not down range. Considering my irons are co-witnessing, it may be possible to use the irons for aiming. Unfortunately I did not get a chance to shoot with the T10 mounted.
