The Pulsar Helion 2 XP50 detects heat signatures out to 2,000 yards.

Whether on duty, hunting at night or merely protecting your family, nighttime target identification remains a constant challenge. U.S. military operations routinely overpower adversaries at night, typically owning the best technology, delivering a decided tactical advantage. Whatever your pursuit, the Pulsar Helion 2 XP50 helps deliver that same tactical advantage in a handheld thermal monocular.
