Pulsar Talion XQ38

SKU: PUL-76561


Lightweight and Powerful…

The brand-new Pulsar Talion XQ38 is an innovative, compact thermal imaging riflescope with an eclectic range of impressive features, including a highly sensitive 384×288, 17 µm <40 mK NETD thermal imaging sensor for stunning clarity at up to 1350m, an interchangeable and rechargeable Pulsar APS5 battery for up to 9 hours of power, Picture-in-Picture (PiP) mode, and Stream Vision 2 compatibility.

Highly Sensitive Thermal Sensor

The Talion XQ38’s highly sensitive high definition 384×288, 17 µm thermal sensor with <40mK NETD, provides a richly contrasted image, offering enhanced identification of animals and their extremities, and the smallest details such as leaves, branches, and terrain in even the harshest weather conditions when thermal contrast is low.

Lightweight & Durable

At only 700g, this innovative new thermal imaging riflescope is incredibly lightweight, however, due to its rugged magnesium alloy housing, the Talion XQ38 still retains a robust build that can take on even the harshest conditions. This magnesium alloy housing also serves as a heat sink, extracting the warmth generated by the device’s inner electronics.

High calibre weapons are also no problem, as this riflescope is high recoil resistant, meaning it can be used with high calibre hunting rifles (9.3×64, .30-06, .300, .375H&H, etc.), as well as smooth-bore and pneumatic weapons.

To add to its durability, this compact device is also IPX7 waterproof, withstanding heavy rain, fog, and high humidity. It can even withstand immersion in 1m of water for up to half an hour.

Simple Focus Adjustment

Focus adjustment has been made simple thanks to the integrated fin lever. Designed to match the protruding ridge on the Talion XQ38’s housing when focusing has reached the 70m mark (night-time shooting distance), this will allow for quick and correct focusing, without needing to look down the riflescope.

Effortless Control

Locating the controls on the Talion XQ38 has been made effortless, as they have all been placed on the top panel of the eyepiece to simplify access as much as possible for users regardless of whether they are left or right-handed.

Built-In Video & Still Image Recorder

Capture all those once-in-a-lifetime moments thanks to built-in video and still image recording capabilities. This, combined with the built-in WiFi module and Stream Vision 2 connectivity, will allow the user to view and share memorable moments easily.

Up to 9 Hours Battery Life

Powered by an interchangeable and rechargeable Pulsar APS5 battery, the Talion XQ38 provides up to 9 hours of operation time after just a single charge (depending on temperature). The embossed battery cover design helps the user to accurately identify the correct battery position, meaning removing and replacing the battery is quick and easy, even in complete darkness. The rapid extraction lock will also ensure a fast and seamless battery removal and replacement. Releasing this lock will open and raise the Talion XQ38’s battery cover, which is located on the top of the riflescope’s housing.


(PiP) Mode

Picture in Picture (PiP) mode uses 10% of the Talion XQ38’s display, allowing the user to observe an HD zeroing frame. This mode will display a magnified image of the target and reticle, whilst simultaneously retaining visual control over the entire field of view.

5 Shooting Profiles & 10 Zeroing Distances

The Talion XQ38 offers 5 shooting profiles for a variety of weapon or cartridge types. Each profile can store up to 10 zeroing distances, offering up to 50 zeroing distances overall. There is also a selection of 10 electronic reticle configurations and functions (direct shot type, ballistic, scalable, and regular) in 9 colour modes.

Variable Signal Amplification Levels

The Talion XQ38 allows the user to choose between three signal amplification levels. This, combined with Pulsar’s new filtration algorithms with fine brightness and contrast adjustments, will help to better define a target’s features, as well as providing an incredibly clear rendering of objects and backgrounds in the field of view.

Full colour, power-saving AMOLED display, which ensures

a fluid, flawless high-resolution image for a crisp, richly

contrasted, and vividly detailed field of view.
