Attention hog hunters: Vista Outdoor wants you to know that their new SVTS thermal riflescope combines night vision technology with thermal imaging. That should result in more dead pigs. Even better, their new SVTS-80 Fusion unit MSRP’s for only $1199. Here’s their press release . . .
OVERLAND PARK, Kansas – January 19, 2018 – Night Optics USA, an industry leader in the production of innovative, professional-quality night vision gear, will introduce the world’s first continuous calibration thermal riflescope at the 2018 SHOT Show – the SVTS Thermal riflescope.
Available in three models, the Night Optics SVTS couples night vision with thermal overlay, allowing users to quickly identify targets with ease. The SVTS line is also the first thermal riflescope to deliver continuous calibration, assuring users that the screen will not freeze during critical moments. In addition to this category-leading feature, the SVTS is standard with Heat Tracker. This innovative design feature identifies the next heat signature with an arrow pointing to the target outside of the visible screen. A quick-select menu, waterproof construction, and multiple reticle choices ensure fast target acquisition and accuracy in all weather conditions.
“The SVTS line offers category leading technology at unprecedented prices,” said Ben Bainter, Night Optics Product Manager. “Hunters and shooters can now access thermal riflescope technology at an MSRP of only $1,199 with our SVTS-80 Fusion model.”
The SVTS-80 Fusion, as with the other models in the lineup, features night vision with thermal overlay for quick detection using thermal while simultaneously identifying with night vision. The mid-range SVTS-320 has a Core Resolution of 320×240 and a display resolution of 640×480. The Long Range SVTS-640 has a core resolution of 640×480.
Other standard features include recoil activated recording that automatically saves 10 seconds before and 10 seconds after a shot is fired, along with Snap Back shot-sensing technology that allows the scope to automatically zoom out to reacquire targets quicker than ever before.
At the 2018 SHOT Show, Night Optics will also unveil its new BRILLIANCE powered Night Vision line. Working with the top image intensifier tube manufacturers in the world, Night Optics improved specifications for their new BRILLIANCE line. With crisp resolution/clarity and mil-spec life expectancy, the Night Optics BRILLIANCE image intensifier tube is the perfect combination of combat proven technology and consumer demanded performance at a significant cost advantage.
Night Optics will also introduce the world’s smallest multi-function IR device—the Night Chase NC50. This device enables all levels of tactical, hunting and self-defense users a day/night solution for close to midrange target engagement. Pinpoint accuracy is made possible beyond 500 yards with a laser measuring less than 1 mrad at 100 yards. The built-in IR illuminator allows for quick, close to mid-range target identification when paired with a night vision device.
Last but not least, is Night Optics FIR-i Focusable IR Illuminator. This 600 mW illuminator boasts over 1 hour runtime from a single CR123a battery. The FIR-i is the perfect illuminator for any night op with the included Picatinny rail mount, flood to spot focus, and up to 1,000 yard capability.
