Great scope!All I can say is WOW! I tried 3 different night vision scopes, not thermal, and wasn't happy with any of them. I really wasn't expecting too much out of the lower priced thermals like the Predator. Well I was dead wrong! Anything alive lights up like a Christmas tree. Resolution is great up to 2X after that it does get a little pixelated but still shootable. I really don't see a need for going over 2X for my usage anyway. Watched 6 does the other night unmounted and at 150 yards could see their ears. My son said he could see our Labradors heart signature at 70 yards. If you wanna kill coyotes and pigs at night, look no further.

My go to optic for almost everythingI have had the Predator 336 2-8x25 optic for about a year now. Since then quite a few friends have purchased thermals on my recommendation. I think it's a great little optic out to about 200 yards. After that distance and using the digital zoom, the in scope resolution goes down quite significantly. You can still identify targets for the most part, but not a lot of detail. For my usage it's quite good though. Most of my pest shots are typically around 100-150 yards.
It's quite amazing what you can see in a different spectrum. I've taken this scope to people's houses, looked throughout their homes and let them know where they are losing money and aren't insulated. You can see all the heat loss areas in any house or building. Not really it's intended purposed, but it's still pretty awesome.
There are a few limitation on the scope. Although you an see through rain, fog, snow, etc, when any of those are happening, you tend to see a sort of haze through the optic as the rain or fog in the air is typically colder than the ground or ambient temperature so I think that's where the haze comes from.
The battery life stated at 4 hours seems a little generous. The Evergreen CR123 batteries that my device came with only lasted maybe an hour. Since then I have been only using Energizer batteries and seem to get two or three hours, but never even close to 4. I did break down recently an purchased the Extended Battery pack on Fleabay at a costly charge and am able to use some high end 18650 batteries to get some really good battery life out of the optic. It's a pricy battery pack for sure at over 2 bills. ATN has a battery pack that only runs $99 for their newer optics which is a little more reasonable.
The optic seems to retain it's zero when removed and reattached to the same rifle as long as you don't need to re-adjust the 1913 rail attachment. The rails on my Savage FVSR are a little wider than the rails on my AR and require a small adjustment which I have found knocks one of the rifles off zero. I mainly keep the thermal on my .22 now, but if I need to I can throw it on my AR and get close after changing the "in scope menu rifle profile."
Overall, this is a great scope for the average person. If you have lots of money definitely get the best you can get, but I don't think you will be disappointed with this optic knowing a few of the limitations. Make sure you do your research before getting one though as they are large purchases. My wife about shot me after I got this one so be aware. :) Like the title says, this is my "Go to" scope for pretty much everything.

Bobby More from
Amazing ScopeEvery now and then I was looking through thermal scopes to buy a new one for myself and eventually stumbled upon a Predator weapon sight. At first it seemed like the unit was nothing special, but after digging a bit deeper I saw that this unit is definitely worth attention. I knew for sure what exactly I needed from a new device, since I had experience using thermal weapon sights, and Predator met all my requirements. It combines outstanding target acquisition capabilities with simple sighting-in (it took me 2-3 shots to do it). Adding to that, this scope has bunch of useful picture enhancements that smoothed over the only minor disadvantage my Predator has. I mean lens size. In fact, this is not a real disadvantage, since some of you may want to have a scope with 25 mm lens. Adding to that, I have a thermal unit for a price of regular night vision. To put it in a nutshell, Predator is a great solution for me. Finally I am able to enjoy every minute of hunting.
