    I think I have a winner in this newly released version of the Sightmark Wraith. Looking forward to getting it zeroed on a couple of different rifles and going to work on the varmint population.

    That looks good. I’ve had good luck with mine. Guess it’s the older version. It’s pretty easy to operate, which I needed.

    I have the older version, but it works fine for me, did go to a Sniper Hog Light for better IR illumination.

    I didn't record any footage because frankly, it would be boring as heck. I did sight in the Wraith 2-16x28 today on my M&P 15-22 for varmint work around the house and barns and two profiles for my 25-45 Sharps. One profile is for the 70 grain SBK and one for the 87 grain Speer Hot Cor. The one shot zero didn't work very well for me, as the adjustments tended to move the POI much farther than expected it to several times. I know how it's supposed to work and to a degree it does but the initial movements for each profile kind of slung the POI around instead of nudging it over. Once I got the POI close to what I was wanting, the adjustments were easier to manage. I should have eyeball bore sighted each profile when starting like I would a regular scope. It would have saved me a heck of a lot of 200 yd round trips. Once I got the scope set for each profile, I turned it off and removed it from the rifle. I remounted it, turned it back on and selected the appropriate profile and the scope did very well retaining POI. Switching from rifle to rifle does not seem like it will be a problem. I am really looking forward to cooler weather and getting my feeders going. More than likely, the coons will be pounding the feeders soon after and I will be dealing death with the Wraith. Also, between the Wraith and my Flir PTS233, the coyotes around here are in serious trouble.
