As a passionate hunter, Wolfgang Schwarz, a product manager at SWAROVSKI OPTIK, knows all the factors you need to consider when choosing your thermal imaging device.
The tM 35 is a hand-held thermal imaging device that can be converted to a clip-on device using an adapter. Please observe the legal requirements in the country of use. Contact your hunting association for precise information.
Do you plan to use the device only for observing and detecting?
Will you be using it only in the hide or would you like to use it for stalking too?
How far do you want to shoot?
Which is more likely: Will you be shooting in daylight or twilight?
Can the thermal imaging clip-on device be used with your existing firearm-rifle scope combination (open sight, barrel/rifle scope distance, silencer)?
Are you planning to purchase a rifle scope as well? To increase the all-round usability of your firearm, opt for a combination of the tM 35 and a rifle scope with a 42-mm objective lens diameter and a correspondingly large field of view.
Do you intend to put together a firearm for use exclusively at night that won’t be used to shoot during the day?
