The FLIR ThermoSight® R-Series is the world’s first line of commercial thermal night vision rifle scopes for non-game hunting starting at under $3,500. Compact and easy-to-use, the R-Series delivers rock-solid thermal imaging for seeing predators and varmints in zero light. Built by the leader in infrared technology, R-Series scopes deliver the range of features you want—with the thermal performance you expect.
Why thermal is the better night vision
The R-Series is ideal for hunting at night because it detects heat energy, instead of light. The body heat of target animals glows bright through the R-Series scope—while you remain hidden in the dark. Conventional image intensified (I2) night vision scopes are more limited because they require illumination from moonlight or other sources. Plus they can’t reveal what’s hiding in shadows or in low-contrast environments the way thermal can.
Easy-to-use, rugged design
The R-Series was built for moments when you have to act fast. With large, glove-friendly buttons and an intuitive menu, you can quickly set reticle settings, zoom, and polarity palettes in three clicks or less. An internal shock reduction system (SRS-M™) is qualified for an MSR semi-automatic platform, up to .30 Cal. Plus, the durable, water-resistant casing can be submerged in up to three feet of water. Day or night, hot or cold, clear or stormy, whatever the conditions, the R-Series will deliver. FLIR is so confident in the reliability of the R-Series scopes that they come with a three-year warranty (with registration) on the scope, and a 10-year warranty on the internal sensor.
Multiple options for increased accuracy
The scope contains the most advanced image correction technology available, and optimizes images automatically. Along with fixed lens options of 13mm, 19mm, 35mm, and 60mm, the R-Series provides three inches of eye relief, up to 16× digital zoom, and multiple reticle options with a repeatable and dependable zero. Select between “white hot,” “black hot,” and “InstAlertTM” palettes, and capture memorable moments with video out (on most models).
Black Hot Palette White Hot Palette
The R-Series offers up to six different detection palettes, including FLIR’s exclusive InstAlertTM, which displays the hottest temperatures in red so you can detect animals, people and other warm objects more easily.
