The makers of Thermal Imaging devices seem to be using Industrial Designers and CMF experts more and more, and I really like the blue color on the new Thermion XP50. In this case, the blue has been accentuated by the owner with a metallic blue Warne mount, pins and safety selector.
Finished build from Steve Neece with the Thermion XP50 and Warne Scope Mounts from Johnny’s Sport Shop. We’re loving the blue accents on this one, they go perfectly with the Pulsar blue on the Thermion!
The rifle is built on a Spike Tactical’s Snowflake Lower which is a special series lower receiver featuring the Unicorn logo engraved on the left side of the magwell. The selector has Safe Space, Triggered, and Full Libturd markings.
TFB is doing a review of the Pulsar Trail 2 LRF XP50 (mounted to a Ruger Precision Rifle in the image below), which is soon about to be released in the USA. We put it side to side with the Pulsar Thermion XP50 (the top one – in a Spuhr mount, with Blaser attachments) to give you an idea about the differences in size and looks between the two. In terms of thermal imaging performance, they are very similar.
Here’s a video from a test we did with the Thermion XP50.

Below is an excellent video (no shooting).
What do you think of the Unicorn build? Better than the white Startrooper Blaser?
