Hey guys, just FYI, the Pulsar Trails and Helions have started slowing trickling in to Pulsar. The first shipment is going out to dealers today. The new Apex and Core models will likely be a little while longer while they try to get caught up a little on the Trail and Helion orders.

I will have a Trail XP50 here by tomorrow afternoon that will keeping for myself. If anyone is interested in any of these new thermal models, let me know and I'll be glad to answer questions. I've got several pre-orders and with the scarcity of these scopes and the high demand, they will be pretty hard to come by for awhile.

Here is a simple video I made from my demo on the XP50 a few weeks ago.

Buddy bought one. I can't wait to see it, I think it will be a game changer with all the built in features.

Sooner or later they will all have these features and it will improve to 12 microns with a better initial zoom

Just placed an order for the Pulsar Core RXQ30V with Jason at Outdoor Legacy gear. Heck of a guy to talk to and deal with. Straight forward and honest. If he didn't know the answer he told me he didn't and found out. But he knows his stuff. I highly recommend doing business with him. Even if it's for nothing more than great customer service. Thanks again Jason. Can't wait to have this in my hands.

Hey guys quick update, I'm about to get on the road and be out of town for a couple days. I'll get back on here over the weekend to catch up and give an update on the new Trail XP50 and answer any questions. I'll just say this much.....it's as good as expected!

If anyone needs me, feel free to call, I'll be on the road and available off and on today and tomorrow.

That's what I figured with the prices I can get either at.




Jason I'll give you a call in a couple weeks, was just asking about those 2 because I can get them for about 10% more than renting a high dollar one

Just got one of the new Trail xp50s in stock and I' VERY impressed with the picture quality and features. Nothing even comes close in this price range!!

Pulsar has definitely upped their game with this one and should really be considered when looking at some of the competition.

Yeah for that price range I don't see anything comparable! Middle of the road price wise that performs and has quality of a scope 2k more then it costs

And I can give you a TBH discount which will make them less than 10% more than renting.

I'll post up some more in depth thoughts when I get back in town but I'll say this with full confidence......Pulsar has raised the bar and set the stage do dominate the $5,000 and under thermal market. The XP50 is not better or even perfectly equal to a MKIII or a REAP-IR but it can at least hold its own and is in the same ballgame. Those optics cost $1,500-$2,500 more so to even be in the same ballpark, much less the ballgame, I'm impressed.

For everything under $5,000, all the way down to the $1,899 Pulsar Core RXQ30V, Pulsar is putting a ton of quality into their optics at a new lower level of pricing. I'm not saying everything else is junk but Pulsar brought their A game this year with a whole new line up and so far, no one else has even released a new thermal optic.

And lest anyone say I'm a shill for Pulsar, I also sell Armasight, FLIR, ATN and now Trijicon/IR Defense.

From what I have seen I do agree. I saw they posted your photo on FB and IG of the deer you were looking at thru the scope

It's a whole lot to get into via typing and everyone's situation and needs/wants is different. Call me. No pressure to buy anything at all and I can help answer all those questions. I've used both scopes extensively side by side.

(877)350-1818 ext 0

I'm always glad to help and answer questions. I do it every day.

It won't last long but I've got a brand new Pulsar Trail XQ38 Thermal Riflescope for $3,299 coming in tomorrow or Monday and it's not spoken for yet. I'll also have a Pulsar Quantum Lite XQ23V Thermal Monocular for $2,199. I've used both of them and they are awesome optics. I can post up details if anyone wants more info. Both these optics are the in the first handful of these models to hit the US consumer market.

Edit: Just got word I'm getting a Pulsar Trail XQ30 Thermal Riflescope for $2,799 on this shipment as well!

I saw all Trijicon's scopes went up $500. The reap is bought for under $7 is now $8.

I assume because Trijicon is a much better company and their costs are higher

Nothing new on the Apexes yet. The "official" word I got last week is that they still want to work through much of the Trail and Helion backlog. There are dealers who still haven't received a single Trail unit yet so they have to at least get everyone a little satisfied and partly (mostly?) caught up before they start bringing in more models. Again, that's what I've been told and anything can change but I think it's still going to be awhile.

Feel free to keep asking because eventually I'll have some good news.lol

The demand is through the roof right now and Pulsar can't make them fast enough. If anyone is looking you can let them know I've got a Trail XP50, XQ38 and XQ30 in stock ready to ship out. I've also got one of the new Quantum Lite thermal monoculars in stock as well.

I've been using my XP50 a ton and it is awesome. So much better than I ever expected and even better than what I remembered from when I demo'd it.

I killed this one a couple nights ago with the Trail XP50, I'll post the video ASAP.

Here is the video from the Pulsar Trail XP50 of the hog I posted the pic of above. And sorry the video intro and music are a bit over the top. My video editor gets really excited and sort of goes overboard, even on simple videos like this. He's a great guy and extremely talented, I've just got to rein him in sometimes.

UNV MDVR, it's one of the only NV DVR units out there and its the unit that all IR Defense recommends and the one they use for their promo videos.

http://www.outdoorlegacygear.com/unv-mdvr.html

A fair warning though, the video connector REAP uses is very specific and the REAP cable for the UNV MDVR has to be hand made and they have to source that connector. The cable alone costs $189 (sold separate from the MDVR), which scares some guys but your options are limited if you want to record with the scope.

If you decide you are interested, shoot me a PM or give me a call. I'm in the process of having a new online store built and for some reason the MDVR cable for the REAP isn't listed in my current (old) store. I can get it for you though.

I have the REAP IR and have the UNV DVR setup. Once used to it, its not a big deal. The quality is good, but not exactly what you see thru the eyepiece.

I have taken 15-20 videos of kills over the last 3 months.


Like he said, the options are extremely limited and this was the best option IMO.

The price of the REAP went up to $8k and now includes more of the DVR stuff for "free"

my buddies XP50 came in and he dialed it in. We shot 6 from a group last weekend and I like the scope. Haven't played around with it a lot but the quality is pretty good.

The extreme detail in the background/trees is lacking like the REAP has, but for $5k or less like he paid I don't think anything compares for that price point

Been awhile since I've posted in here but I figured I'd share with y'all my latest hunts and video.

Wednesday night a close friend of mine came down to hunt so I decided I would take a little vacation time from work and go out to hunt with him. Most of our wheat has been harvested or baled with the exception of a few fields so it's made it a lot easier to spot hogs again. All but one of the video clips in my video were from Wednesday. It was mostly lone boars with a two small sounders. We were able to kill and recover 13 pigs. I was using my Zeus 640 42mm on my SBR blackout with an omega, Jordan (Friend from out of town) was using his new Zeus 640 75mm on his blackout with an omega, and Rustin was using one of his Zeus 336 42mm on his 6.8 with my YHM phantom QD.



Then Thursday I went out with a friend back home in Graham on his farms where they have a lot of wheat. They hadn't harvested just yet so it was a bit difficult to locate hogs so we just made a quick drive around in my ranger and drove up on a coyote mousing around in a coastal pasture. I was using my AR308 with my Gen 3 CO-X clip on so I decided to take a shot at him. Got him right behind the shoulder and watched him drop. 50% luck and 50% skill if I'm being honest because I ranged him after the shot at 270 yards. Also I'm very impressed by the clip on. I'm able to look at and ID jack rabbits at 600 yards. Then we drove up around a wheat field he's been having lots of damage in and found a nice size boar feeding in it. Shot and recovered him fairly easy.



On Friday I had some friends that we've been hunting with for a few years now come up to Wichita and hunt with us. Weston and Brandon were using their Modern Carbine 6.8s, I was using my blackout SBR again, Ryan was using a 6.8 as well, and so was Nic. Seems as if I need to go ahead and join the club and get a 6.8. All of us had Zeus scopes.
We got on 3 sounders and 2 lone boars. One of the boars was pushing 315 but we didn't have a tape or a scale to check. However I've measured and weighed enough to have an accurate guesstimate.
On one of the sounders we shot into we found in one of our landowners hay barn. He's been trying to prevent them from getting into it but they continue to find their way in. They've just flat destroyed several wheat hay bales and continue to tear up more. But..it did make for a fun shoot watching them try to get out of there dodging bullets! All in all we recovered 18 hogs but we had left another 2 that crawled out of the fields to go die somewhere else. And I'm sure we wounded a few more.
Had a lot of fun with some good friends and made some more memories.

We can pretty regularly kill 15-20. He went last night and shot 16 but wounded another 4.

Our to date record is 33 in a night I believe..This year it's 20 so far. Hasn't got to the good part of the year yet though!

I'm curious what you don't like about them. I've talked to hundreds of people that like them especially at the price point. Upgrading the IR though is a must. Here is a video a customer sent me that he took with his ATN X-Sight HD II 5X20 with our 66LRX IR light. The pigs were 180-220 yards away and my customer told me he could see close to 700 yards with it and I have had many customers tell me they could see 600 yards with it.

Thank you! Shooting was a bit rough at first..been a month or two since I've used my blackout and had gotten used to my AR308! We're fortunate to have as many targets as we do thats for sure!
