    Thanks for this you dumbed it down so even I can unnerstanit! I have been drinking from a fire hydrant and after chatting with a dealer on the phone I was not understanding him apparently. Alas sound and even video while nice don't mean a thing to me I just want the ability to see and dispatch rodents from the lease I can take pics when I drop them at the gut pile! Sounds like this Core XQ would do me fine. I had some grand intentions when this thermal thought took hold, but with the waiting game on Pulsar and bow season already approaching on the calendar my buddy and I are focused on one thing: smoke as many hogs as possible as fast as possible b/f we shut the rifles down.

    Yeah that is NOT gonna happen, beside I spend less than $50 a month for beer and cigs so that does not even buy the ammo!

    Here is the info I got on starting price point for each model....Would be nice to get this info to the vendors that frequent this site bc myself along with many others are planning on buying one of these and we as consumers are looking for the best deal.
    $1900- Core RXQ
    $2500 - Apex XQ38
    $3000 - Apex XQ38LRF
    $2800 - Apex XQ50
    $3300 - Apex XQ50LRF
    $2800 - Trail XQ30 (XQ models are 384 core)
    $3300 - Trail XQ38
    $3800 - Trail XQ50
    $4500 - Trail XP38 (XP models are 640 core)
    $5000 - Trail XP50

    Trail models have internal recorder.

    Man does this help me immensely. Talked to the distributor again and he described it right I'm just really really stupid. That and I was driving listening on speakerphone hustling to the airport, but I'm also really stoOpIt.

    Core RXQ for me

    I think all the Trails have internal recording.

    Thank you for this information. I am looking forward to reading about all the field tests from forum members.

    Yes, and bc of the upgrade in technology with the 17 micron the Apex XQ50 would be like Apex XD75.

    Truly?
    My understanding is that merely making the sensor chip smaller does not increase the resolution. With the same size lens & same number of pixels the resolution should not improve. Now if they put a larger lens on it ...

    Anybody actually see one of these in the field yet? I am seeing them start to show up on websites (UNV, Kenzie's, Optics Planet), but nobody shows any in stock. I'm kinda leaning toward the Trail XP50, but I don't want to be a beta-tester, either...

    Seems the test units are out but the production ones are not.

    I've used the Trail in person. It's bad to the bone. I have one on order for myself. I plan to use it on the rifle and use my Reap-IR as a spotter.

    They say shipping mid to late next month.

    Correct, internal recording, rechargeable and interchangeable battery packs, wifi streaming to an app. Pretty cool scope and not as humongous as the apex.

    They are already selling the Pulsar Helion thermal monocular in the UK. The Trail is supposed to arrive in April. Looking forward to it.
