X Vision TRW Thermal Optic

X-Vision Optics is introducing its new wide view thermal reflex sight, the TRW1. This thermal optical sight has an extra wide field of view and is optimized for targets inside of 100 yards. The TRW1’s wider field of view also makes target acquisition an easy task. In spite of its inside-100-yard sweet spot, the TRW1 can still detect images up to 500 yards away and its recognition range is up to 225 yards. The TRW1 is built rugged with an IP67 weatherproof rating. The integrated Picatinny mount allows users to easily mount it to any firearm or crossbow with a Picatinny rail section. The unit weighs a little more than 8 ounces and sits at just under 3 inches tall. A single CR123 batter is used to power this optic and it has a runtime of 3.5 hours. The 1.63 inch AMOLED display lends itself well to both daytime and night time use and includes four different color palettes (white hot, red hot, black hot and full color). Shooters can also choose from four different reticle styles.
