My scope is already hanging off the back of the rail about a half inch. Is there some type of rail extension i could mount to the existing rail to move the scope back further and also lower it a half inch or so? I found some that would extend it back but would also raise it higher and I definitely dont wand to do that, lower would be better.
Offset ring mount such as: Monstrum Slim Profile Series Offset Cantilever Picatinny Scope Mount 30 mm Diameter, t's on Amazon for under $ 30. ATN sells one for around $100 that is a quick detach so you can move it from gun to gun.
I've purchased two of these (one from this seller and another from another seller) in the last couple of years. They are well made and I've not had any issues with the 5x20 mounted on a 7.62x51mm Rem 700, and the 3x14 mounted on a .17WSM:

IMHO The ATN is made for an AR platform. I had my XS2 on my Ruger American in 6.5 Cre and it was not comfortable. I had to stretch to get my eye on it. The BC was amazing as I was taking farther shots and hitting but the hold was difficult and uncomfortable. You have to get your eye on the boot to work properly.
So I moved it or an AR platform in a 300BO. I mainly hunt hogs with it. Less recoil, faster 2nd, 3rd and so on acquisition and the eye relief is perfect.
I ended up putting a Vortex Diamond Back Tactical on the 6.5 and enjoy both much more. Now I am learning long range shots during the day. With my reloading it is getting g really fun and crazy accurate. Learning my clicks and MOA is exciting as it progresses.
I take both with me when I go hunt (from my truck bed). So weight is not an issue. Now I have choices depending on my location and set up. If I am under 200 it’s the ATN/AR. If it’s 250 it’s the Ruger and I can go for 2fers. Another fun challenge.
I love my ATN but it’s not a do all for every application.
My typical deer hunts are <100 yards. So the ATN/AR is great and I get to record the hunt (day time). If they don’t come in I hang out and move to NV and wait for Miss Piggy.
The idea is to have fun and fill freezers. Not be a Ninja Hunter.

tp: Hi, I'm looking for informations. Is it necessary to make a control shout if I upload the new firmwares and reset the devices? I note before the update the currently coordinate and after update/reset I give on this coordinate in settings systems. Thanks.

tp: Sry for my bad English skills, I'll try again. At first I saved the current coordinates (x,y). Afterwards I updated the software and reseted the system. Then I putted the saved coordinates in again. My question is: Am I supposed to make a control shot

jhaberly: You do not need an ir light for thermal scopes. The X-Sight 4K sees in the ir spectrum and presents it to you as visible on the view screen.

rcarpen128: I have a thor 4 that has been great but now I can not get it to power on. Is there anyway to reset so will power on?
Nov 22, 2019 12:32:04 GMT -8
jhaberly: I have the 4K PRO and it made a click sound when it powered on and off. Did the Thor 4 do that as well? If so you'll know if it's turning on and off (off by holding Power for 15 seconds or more).

jhaberly: I downloaded the PC-based application to force a firmware re-load and that fixed it. Somehow it got wedged so it appeared that nothing was working.
