In 2016 ATN took yet another novel approach to thermal scopes. Using some of the technology developed for the X-Sight scope and BinoX binoculars in 2014 and 2015, they redesigned the entire ThOR line to be based on Obsidian "T" II Thermal cores instead of the FLIR cores used previously. Results seem to be impressive. The new ATN ThOR HD thermal scopes pack a ton of modern technologically advanced features. How well these new cores will hold up compared to the proven FLIR cores used in the past remains to be seen, but the 3 year body / 10 year core warranty ATN offers puts our concerns to rest.
This particular model featuring 2.5-25x progressive zoom with a 50mm objective lens is ideal for mid range hunting. Competitively priced and packed with features, this ATN thermal scope is probably the ideal choice for most hunters as it covers the standard 75-300 yard hunting range.
Some key features of the ThOR HD Series:
- Smart Range Finder
- Recoil Activated Video (RAV)
- Smooth Zoom
- Profile Manager
- GPS Geotag
