  • Which thermal

    Of these two, Pulsar HD19s or Eotech x320? Not taking price into account. Which would you choose for hunting pigs and why? Thanks!

    I really like my Flir PS32. I know, you asked for a compare, but the Flir is almost bullet proof for me. I really like that alert capability, it sure shows me the coyotes.

      I considered the flir but dislike the internal battery and slow refresh rate. Eotech has the alert mode as well. Thanks for your input though. Ive pretty well decided the eotech is the one for me.

        I just bought the same one, hopefully we both made the right choice!!!

            If i was to choose a thermal right now it would be the IR hunter MKII or look for a used IR hunter. Seems to be great for the money.

              Thanks black ops but only looking for a spotter, not a rifle scope.

                Oh my mistake. I saw hogs and figured it was for use as a sight.

                    Yep ... I've got that set up and it's really nice. LS64 thermal spotter and nv clip on for the rifle. I must admit I've had thermal clip on fever or even a dedicated thermal scope but my pockets aren't deep enough and I need to be satisfied with what I have. Good luck in your purchases!

                        Yes and yes regarding the internal battery. Others disagree but I feel the EXACT same way. This way you can always grab the batteries out of a TV remote to run it if need be. The L3/Insight model is great, I ran an X50 (early forerunner to the X320) for five years and what a spectacular and durable little device it was. It's perfect for sticking in your pocket and using on the eye that isn't occupied by a PVS-14. It's great for finding stuff for the 14/IR laser to "follow up on." I finally sold mine for what I had in it in order to help fund my L3/Insight LWTS clip-on. I doubt you will be disappointed, good choice.

                          That's awesome and thanks for the info sir. That LWTS is a really nice sight, I bet you're going to enjoy it.

                              X320 here as well. No regrets. It's a great little unit.

                                I really want a pulsar quantum that I've been eyeing on techeyes website, I used this mini thermal mono in Afghanistan and loved it. But now that I've looked at the Pulsar HD19 I might be saving a little longer for it. Eotech is a great company too, but I'd go with Pulsar personally. That's a sweet picture of the deer, I'm looking to hunt hogs with mine.

                                  On paper the x320 is superior to the pulsar for long range detection, check out the huge fov difference. But if you need short range use the pulsar would be better.

                                    So the EOTech X320 is a newer version of the L3 X50?

                                    Humph, when did EOTech get merged with L3? ...is L3 making it for them?

                                    I had an x50 and an x200... they are good, but there were better units out there... I'm going to assume that the x320 is decent, what's it costing you?

                                      I tried to buy from hide vendors but no one had inventory or they wanted 3,400.
                                      Took a chance on ebay with my credit card for fraud protection and got a unit for 3050 shipped second day air.
                                      Disappointed on hide member pricing but i always give them first shot.
                                      The X320 is no where as good as my MTM but at the price point it is a great unit. You can spot objects almost as well, you just dont have the resolution to ID things as well. But thats where NV should come in. At least thats how I use it.

                                      Bottom line if mine was stolen today I would order another one.

                                        Had the XD50s for some weeks which was great for spotting, also really good resolution. If you have the money I can recommend the OASIS UTM. Great little device.

                                                  I bought the Leupold LTO Tracker, I love the all metal construction and the 10 hour battery life and the fact it uses off the shelf batteries, it has 7 zoom ranges and 6 Colour pallets and as part of their Golden Ring Tactical range it just says Quality all the way.
