IRayUSA is introducing a new thermal scope, the InfiRay BOLT SE 25mm (TL25SE) to the US market that will be exclusively sold through Sports South, starting in March of 2024.

The Bolt SE 25mm is an entry-level thermal optic designed with rifle shooters in mind that uses a traditional riflescope profile. The unit has a 30mm main tube diameter so finding mounts and bases for the optic will be easier than mounting a scope with a proprietary ring system. The thermal optic makes use of InfiRay’s 12 µm 384x288 Micro II sensor and is paired with a 1536x1080 AMOLED display that provides first-rate clarity across all zoom levels and is adjusted via an intuitive zoom ring similar to a optical riflescope.

“We are excited to offer this exclusive product as part of our partnership with iRayUSA that will hopefully help our valued dealers grow their business in such an evolving market," said Caden Smith, Sports South Director of Sales. “This is an exciting product for us,” said Pliny Gale iRayUSA Director of Marketing. “This optic uses many features of the extremely popular BOLT models, and simplifies them for an intuitive user experience, and an amazing price point for an entry level thermal optic.”

The Bolt SE 25mm is fueled by an internal battery that is also compatible with USB-C charging system. The scope is able to record photos and videos with 32GB of internal storage and there is an easy to use mobile app which pairs with the optic that allows you to wirelessly view and share recordings with friends and family.

The BOLT SE 25mm thermal rifle scope has an entry level starting retail price of $2,000. To learn more about the BOLT SE 25mm or other products mande by InfiRay and distributed by iRayUsa, please visit
