The New InfiRay RICO MK I V2 Thermal Sight

InfiRay of Lewisville, Texas has been in the business of night vision optics for over 25 years. Their current catalog shows a specialty in the relatively new field of thermal sighting systems. Instead of amplifying existing light like night vision devices do, thermal optics construct an image based on temperature differences, resulting in a cleaner, more readily identifiable reference image. The company’s RICO Mk I is a popular rifle-mounted option and the newly-released Mk I V2 stands to be more feature-filled and cost-effective.

The Rugged Infrared Compact Optic V2 is a thermal weapon sight that is more compact than the previous model, although it features the same dual-lever QD mount and a similar 7075-aluminum housing.

The heart of the optic is the InfiRay Micro II Core and the AMOLED HD display that shows crisp images with an improved refresh time over the V1. The Matrix III processor facilitates this process through improved image correction and modification.

“The RICO line continues to expand in several different directions,” said InfiRay Marketing Director Pliny Gale, “We are excited to launch the new V2 version of the RICO Mk 1. This model continues the original spirit of the popular RICO Mk 1, while adding a few new features and coming in at a lower price.”

The new RICO MK 1 V2 has a maximum detection range of 2,400 meters and up to 4x of digital magnification. The unit is compatible with InfiRay’s ILR-1000-1 range-finding module and the American Defense Manufacturing RQD mount. The V2 has an MSRP of $4,799 and is currently shipping.
