After two years of development building on the success of the Wraith digital night vision riflescope, Sightmark takes digital thermal optics to the next step with the new Wraith Mini 2-16x35 thermal riflescope: cutting edge technology even more accessible to every sportsman!
Brand new for 2023 from Sightmark, the Sightmark Wraith Mini 2-16x35 thermal riflescope expands on the brand's already well-known and vastly appreciated line of day-night sights with a compact, lightweight design offering versatility and high performance to the likes of hunters, law enforcement, security teams, boaters, nighttime explorers, and average citizens for home and property protection at night – including cattle protection from nighttime predators.
The Wraith Mini's 384x288 microbolometer sensor with a sensitivity of <40mK is more capable to detect minute temperature variations than the US Military's own LWTS riflescope and exposes hard-to-see elements on a 1024x768 digital display up to 1,400 yards (1,28 km) in range, while built-in audio and video recording to a micro-SD card provides users the ability to record their hunts in crisp detail.
The new Sightmark Wraith Mini 2-16x35 thermal also sports a user-friendly step-through menu and a simple and intuitive interface, allowing anything from zeroing to the selection of color palettes, reticles, and customization of profiles for individual firearms to be done with only five buttons.
The Wraith Mini 2-16x35 Thermal riflescope can indeed be set to five screen color modes, and ten different reticles of nine different colors to match, so to adapt to any situation of use. Additionally, five weapon profiles can be memorized in the device – each with its own zeroing and configuration of reticles and color modes – and easily be recalled at the push of a button.
The Sightmark Wraith Mini 2-16x35 thermal riflescope is powered by two rechargeable CR123A batteries, held in a compartment on the right side of the scope body, with a textured thumb-pad latch release for quick replacement even in zero-light situations.
A USB-C port is located on the left side, covered by a rubberized plug, for on-the-go recharge or to download the high-quality pictures and footage from the 256GB memory card (not included); the device is compatible with Lithium-ion power banks like Sightmark’s 6000 mAh, Picatinny rail compatible Mini QD Battery Pack for dusk-til-dawn use.
The Sightmark Wraith Mini 2-16x35 thermal riflescope runs for 3.5 hours on video mode and 4.4 hours on preview mode. Combined with the 2x optical magnification with 1-8x digital zoom, this gives the Wraith Mini Thermal optimal image quality and consumption levels good enough for close or medium engagements in the dead of night.
Manufactured out of lightweight aluminum alloy, the Sightmark Wraith Mini 2-16x35 thermal riflescope is 169 mm / 6.56" long overall, 77 mm / 3" wide, 74 mm / 2.91" high, and weights in at 547 grams (19.3 oz) with batteries; it is certified to operate in hostile conditions, including at extreme temperatures (-4 to +144ºF / -20ºC + 50ºC) and comes from factory with a rubberized eye cup, flip-up lens protectors, rechargeable batteries and USB cable.
