Thermal Optic - IR Hunter Mark III

IR Hunter MKIII 640x480 Multi-Use Thermal Weapon Sight w/35mm Lens

IR Hunter MKIII 640 x 480 Thermal Weapon Sight - 35MM

The IR Hunter Mark III is the perfect thermal weapon sight and with good reason. It is a combination of over 20 years of night vision system design and feedback from the original IR Hunter. This led us to our new improved Mk III version that is only available in 640x480 resolution because we only want to deliver the best to our customers. We chose to upgrade the sensor to the new MicroIR 12um Micron technology that is extremely impressive and also uses less power, which increases battery life. We also decided to combine this new sensor with a Mil-Spec Emagin OLED micro display that delivers a super crisp, sharp image per customer request.

We also added a 60hz fast frame rate to every Mk III system at no additional cost. The fast frame rate will be very useful for leading a shot on a fast moving target. Another nice feature of the new Mk III is that the 12um system delivers 35% more magnification than a 17um system. This gives you more magnification for less money out of your pocket which might help explain why the IR Hunter Mk III is the lowest cost 640x480 system on the market today.

The IR Hunter Mark III still contains all the features and ergonomics of the original IR Hunter and comes in a sleek package made to securely fit on your rifle. You should find comfort in operating the Turret Knob controls as they are located where you expect them to be, same as your day optics. Button controls are nice, but in the dark, downrange, under fire, your natural instincts will appreciate the IR Hunter's similarity to your day scope.

One of the key decisions when buying a thermal weapon sight is whether to get a dedicated scope or Clip-On system. The IR Hunter Mk III allows you to have the best of both worlds. The system works as a Clip-On out of the box with no accessory required on a selection of 1x, 1-4x and 1-6x day optics (ask for approved optics list).

Delivering super sharp detailed symbols and reticles combined with our high precision adjusters allows you to simply sight in, and quickly make the ballistic corrections the shot demands.

The 640x480 IR Hunter Mark III is offered in two different Objective Lens dimensions (35mm & 60mm); magnification varies between the two options:

35mm is 2.5-20x Magnification 
60mm is 4.5-36x Magnification
