Pulsar added three new thermal optics to its Core lineup in 2017, adding versatile and innovative optics to the growing market of thermal imaging scopes.

The new Core FXQ38 and FXQ50 thermal imagers are designed as two-in-one products that can be used as standalone handheld scanners or can be attached to a Picatinny rail to provide night-vision aiming capabilities.

Several features of the two new Core thermal imagers include an interchangeable eyepiece that allows for easy clip-on attachment to a daytime riflescope. The optics also use noiseless shutter calibration, an external power supply and a waterproof design that allows for use in the field without worrying about damage. Both products use high-resolution sensors and features a 640x480 AMOLED display. The company claims that the FXQ38 is capable of making out a human-size target at 1,475 yards, while the FXQ50 is capable of the same feat at 1,970 yards.

The Core RXQ30V is designed as a more affordable option for hunters and shooters looking to bridge the gap between top-of-the-line performance and cost. According to Pulsar, the RXQ30V is capable of detecting heat signatures up to 985 yards.

The suggested retail price on the new Pulsar FXQ50 is $5,499.99, while the new FXQ38 retails at a suggested price of $4,399.99. The more affordable RXQ30V retails at a suggested price of $2,089.98.
