Found this brand while watching some air gunning videos. Never seen them prior to that.

Anyone here have any experience with them?

Would be for lite duty pest control. Airgun, 22LR maybe 556.

Average technology, the Arken Zulus has new generation sensor.

Do you have any time behind the Zulus ? I've seen a few videos pop up on YT, mostly from the UK and I was curious how it performed. Specifically on a 556 gun. Seems to be a bit limited to around 150m

I purchased a PARD TA32-25 thermal monocular last year to use as a scanner.  I have been very impressed with the quality and features. No other product I could find at the time had the specs anywhere close for the price.  The things I was looking for:

Small size
384 Minimum sensor
Non-proprietary replaceable batteries
Recording features
Good display

It has more features than I need or will use.  I paid about $1600 last year and it has dropped a couple hundred since then.  

My thermal scope is an IRAY RL42 384 and the quality of the image is certainly better, the price was more than double.

My understanding is that it, like many thermals, are made in China but PARD USA services/ warrants them CONUS. I don't have proof-just what I was told.

Just my 2 cents and sample size of one but I would buy again without hesitation.

ETA:  When I purchased this from B&H, they included an AGM TM-160 thermal scanner for free.
