I have two. I bought my 5x18 through Amazon and my 3x12 from Fox Optic. Both offered very good deals at the time of my purchases, both promptly delivered the goods in new condition. I'm a Amazon Prime member and buy a lot from them, but Travis Fox is a contributing member here who is currently beating Amazon's price, so he got my most recent business.
I watched the X-Sight from the day it was first advertised, and watche its birthing trials. My reloading kit supplier (he specialises in reloading kit, but also does other hunting items for range and field) was my preferred supplier, as I know who I'm dealing with, and know he can get most stuff from the major importers. When firmware 343 came out, with all its positive reports, I knew the time was right to get one, so I rang him up and ordered one. 10 minutes later he's back on the phone, job done, would be in in a bout a week. I ordered the 3-12x, but unfortunately the 3-12x wasn't in stock at the I prters, so I agreed to take a 5-18x. Not perfect for foxing, but I had confidence in it. I got it, but needed an extender/riser to move it back and bring it up to my eye. Got an aluminium one, but it kept bending, and hence the sight was moving zero (I have a feeling that THIS is 90% of people's problems, bending extenders) So, I trolled the Internet, and ended up buy a VERY expensive (£212.00 posted) STEEL extender/riser. Then I had to wait 6 weeks for it to come in to my supplier from the USA, and then wait another week for it to arrive at my door. This meant I had then missed the first 3 weeks of my (self imposed) foxing season. That said, it cured all problems immediately. And was my confidence in the sight justified ? It certainly was, in aces. I almost double my fox count average of previous years writhing the first 3 months of my 6 month season. It AWESOME.
jaco: Hi all. My scope doesn't want to work in night mode anymore. It used to, and But I haven't used it in night mode in a while. Now it indicates that night mode is on, but the screen shows as washout. It does show normal light but the rest is all washout

eyearedan: I tried taking out the SD card and reboot, unscrewing the battery cover and when came up without the SD card, it did same thing, it connects to the Thor WIFI and then quickly drops the WIFI.

omegaman: You must remember, it doesn't connect to the WiFi, it is the WiFi and you connect to it with another device (tablet, phone) using the password shown in the scope. Just like connecting to your router, only it doesn't connect to the Internet, only to itself.

anphibseabee: Hogs been destroying our farm for years. Before, was restricted to moonlight hunting. That was before a "real close" encounter at night with a 350lb boar. Researched available night vision scopes, ATN X-II 3-14 won.

vmesecher: I have the X sight 5-20. I tried to use the night scope mode & the screen is a washout. I tried switching to day mode, green white, etc. but all I get is a static screen. All icons register, compass active but nothing but static. I rebooted, no luck.

vmesecher: The night mode (green and white) worked when I first bought it. This is second time I have turned the scope on.
