Good purchase

Was on the fence with what scope to purchase and called on a Friday afternoon at 4:45 to get advice. Hans called me back at 5:10 on a Friday, which is awesome, and talked me through the purchasing decision. Really appreciate the candor and the fact that they actually care about their customers.

Excellent thermal scope

I have been using a Pulsar Core RXQ 30V for the past 3 years or more for hog and coyote hunting year round in Florida. Most of my shooting is at 100 yards or under. The Core is a great scope, better than most people realize I think, and totally adequate for hog hunting and pest control.
Due to the quality of their products and the excellent customer service of Pulsar, I decided to stick with that company for an upgrade. My requirements were a unit with greater ID range, a clearer image, video capability, a wide field of view (under 3x base magnification), and under $3000.00 cost.
At $2500 the Pulsar Talion XQ38 seemed the way to go. But after waiting 5 months for them to ship to the USA, I finally gave up and decided to go a little higher up the scale with the Pulsar Thermion 2 XQ38. The base price on this scope is $3300.00
I have no regrets; this is an incredible scope. It's actually better than I could have hoped.
The image is so sharp at 2.5x base power, it's staggering. The scope itself looks and feels of quality construction. Controls and menus are easy to learn and totally intuitive. It's heavier and larger than the Core of course, but the tradeoff is well worth it in my opinion. Image rendering being central to everything in thermals, the Thermion 2 XQ38 has a sort of smooth, almost creamy detail that is very pleasing to the eye, particularly in White Hot mode. Animals or anything with a strong thermal signature just pop out of the background. I've used the AGM Rattler 35 and that's a great scope too, but comparatively speaking the image seems overly sharpened, and at times it's difficult to differentiate between the heat signature of an object/plant or an animal in mixed foliage. That overly sharpened picture vs the smooth image is the major imaging difference between the AGM and the Pulsar Thermion 2 in my opinion.
The downsides are few. It's heavier, as I said, but no more so than a daytime 30mm variable scope. This thing eats batteries. You are supposed to get around 5 to 7 hours of runtime. I think that's pretty hopeful, especially when it's early days, and you're out hunting and using every electrical component all the time like I do just to see what this unit can do. The good news is the batteries are rechargeable, so buy some extras. Look on Amazon for a deal. You will get an APS 2 with the unit, and an extended cap for the larger capacity APS 3. Two of those APS 3's in your pocket as backups will keep you going all night for sure.
I have an old Pulsar PB8i 20 hour battery pack for my Core, and if I'm stationary in a stand or sitting at the truck looking around, I plug this in as a mains power source. It also tops up or recharges the internal batteries of the XP38 as a bonus.
The video I'm getting is not as good as the image I'm seeing through the scope. Video is new to me, so perhaps I'm doing something wrong or there is a way to make them more clear. I don't know yet. Maybe Pulsar will come up with some kind of upgrade or suggestion.
In perfect conditions (low humidity, 70F) and at close range of inside of 100 yards what I see through the screen is similar to what you will see online from Thermion 2 XP50 videos. Not as perfect and insanely detailed as that XP50 mind you; but for $2,000 less it's close enough for me.
You will have to buy a good mount for it too. No question. The American Defense clamshell mounts are excellent. I have on one my day scope too. It's easy to set up, always returns to zero, and has never caused scope twist. Just use a tiny dab of their orange lock-tight on the screws and don't over-tighten.
Last but not least, I'd like to commend Jason, Hans, Angela and Micelle (hope I spelled that right!) and the unknown packers at Outdoor Legacy Gear for everything to do with this experience. They had my order out the door the same day I placed it. Great people in Texas!! Thank you all.

More than I expected

I love the Thermion 2, my only problem is it readjusts itself quite a bit while looking through it.
