The PARD Thermal Rifle Scope truly is a very good scope and a typical comment that you will hear is 'wow thats clear' they are also very compact and light
If you have the Quick Detach mount you can use it as a Handheld spotter and in seconds re-attach it to your rifle to shoot!
If you are looking for a 640 core’d thermal, they are just expensive for the gain in resolution, our recommendation is to have a Thermal and a PARD 007 which has vastly more resolution than any thermal – enjoy the hunt, find them with the thermal, see what you are looking at in detail AND save money vs a 640!!
We only recommend the 45mm Lens version for most users, anything less than this is VERY short range and unless you are shooting rats all the time in a barn, the 45mm is the best option to have.

Experience in Night Vision

We (Owl Optics) have been operating in this field for over 13 years and have supplied Professional users, Search and Rescue Personal and various Government Departments both here in New Zealand and Australia with Night Vision, SAR and Communications equipment.
It was only after we tested and verified PARD’s devices that Owl Optics decided to become the distributor as they met our standards.
Local Backup and Support
Backup and support is important for us and a requirement for our other work – It should also be a concern for yourself before investing in Night Vision equipment.
We have pre-tested every device before if is shipped out AND we have our own techs who can repair the units without them being sent back to the Factory with a quick turn around time. Months of waiting time are not acceptable to us in all but extreme cases; you should ask about other brands regarding this and their local support
