Pulsar have announced the start of sales of their new line of Thermion 2 XQ Pro thermal imaging riflescopes that were introduced at the 2022 IWA & Outdoor Classics trade fair earlier this year. The line includes three scopes: Thermion 2 XQ35 Pro, Thermion 2 XQ50 Pro and the Thermion 2 LRF XQ50 Pro. The main difference from previous models of the Thermion 2 XQ35/50 is a 384×288 pixel @17μm, <25mK NETD thermal sensor and new internals to give up to 10 hours of operation time. The new LRF model will also give you accurate readings thanks to the integrated laser rangefinder, a feature TFB reviewed yesterday here.
