Industry Updates & News

Just want to keep you updated on goings on in the industry.

InfiRay announces RICO Mk1 V2 640 50mm Thermal Weapon Sight (RH50V2) - InfiRay Outdoor thermal optics, introduces a new version of the RICO Mk1 thermal weapon sight, building on the popularity of the RH50 model, with new features for 2024. Based on the RICO (Rugged Infrared Compact Optic) Mk1 series of thermal weapon sights, the RICO Mk1 V2 was redesigned with improved audio recording, a blazing fast 60 Hz refresh rate, and an impressively upgraded ≤20 mK sensitivity rating. The heart of the Mk1 V2 features a high-performance InfiRay Micro II core and a high-contrast AMOLED HD display. The Mk1 V2 takes its image processing one step further with Advanced Image Correction and Automatic Image Optimization courtesy of its MATRIX III processor. Unmatched image quality combined with an intuitive and easy-to-use interface, picture-in-picture function, two long-lasting battery packs with 6+ hours of run-time each, aluminum-alloy housing, 1000 G/s2 shock-resistance, and 32 GB of internal memory give you all the tools you need to take your next hog, predator, or varmint hunt to the next level.
A smaller profile, dual-locking-lever, quick-detach mount comes standard with the RICO Mk1 V2. Like the original RICO Mk1, the Mk1 V2 is compatible with the ILR-1000-1 rangefinding module (AC05) and the American Defense Manufacturing RQD mount (AC03). The new V2 model also launches with a lower price, $4,799, than the original RH50.
“The RICO line continues to expand in several different directions,” said Pliny Gale, iRayUSA Director of Marketing. “We are excited to launch the new V2 version of the RICO Mk1. This model continues the original spirit of the popular RICO Mk1, while adding a few new features and coming in at a lower price.”

InfiRay introduces their new HYBRID 75 Multi-function Thermal Weapon Sight - InfiRay Outdoor thermal optics, introduces a new addition to the HYBRID line of multi-function thermal weapon sights, boasting a 75mm objective lens, 4× base magnification, custom reticles, and onboard ballistics.
The InfiRay Outdoor RICO HYBRID fuses the capabilities of a thermal clip-on and a thermal weapon sight to create a new breed of thermal device. The HYBRID gives you never-before-seen versatility and performance, boasting a 3,600 yard detection range as a dedicated thermal sight, or compatibility with day optics up to 10× as an inline clip-on sight. The combination of the HYBRID’s low-distortion orthoscopic eyepiece and a 1.03-inch large-format 2560×1920 display provides comfortable viewing as a dedicated sight while still maintaining the pixel density and resolution for use as a clip-on optic.
The HYBRID also unlocks advanced features such as compatibility with a 1,000 yard laser rangefinder, As a special introductory offer, purchasers of the HYH75W are eligible for to receive the ILR-1000-2 Laser Rangefinder for free after registering their HYBRID sight (for warranty purposes) and completing the LRF Request Form. To learn more about this program see the HYBRID 75 Free LRF Overview Flyer.
Last year, iRayUSA announced the HYBRID 50mm (HYH50W). This year, the HYH75W builds on the original design, with the addition of a flat dark earth ceramic finish, and 75mm objective lens that provides a 4× optical base magnification and increased detection range. Digital zoom up to 32× enables shooters to stretch the HYBRID out to longer distances. For predator hunters in open country, the long range and ballistic capabilities of the HYBRID 75mm are a drastic improvement to the world of 640 resolution thermal weapon sights.
Announced at the 2024 SHOT show, the HYBRID 75 is now available with a price of $7,999. “The HYBRID 75 is the go-to option for night hunters looking to stretch out to greater distances,” said Pliny Gale, iRayUSA Director of Marketing. “This model incorporates features of industry-leading RICO HD (RS75) and the proven HYBRID 50mm. While most shooters will use this as a dedicated weapon sight, the ability to use the HYBRID as a thermal clip-on allows it to do double duty and do some work on an additional rifle.”
