AGM Taipan TM15 384 Monocular

Post by shoots100 »

After testing the AGM 160 and 384 thermal monocular's last year, I was looking to purchase a 384 for myself as a back up and when I inquired about it, I was informed that AGM was coming out with a better spec'd monocular (TM15) in early 2021, so I put one on backorder in mid Dec.
Lo and behold, I got notice that the shipment came in and I received mine Tuesday.
It has a better display and bigger field of view than the 384.
It's perfect for my style of hunting in the wooded terrain or the North East, but is just as impressive in open fields too.
I shot a couple of videos and as usual, what I see in the display is a whole lot better than the compressed video.
This ones a keeper. :handgestures-thumbupright:

Here's a short clip of the deer in my yard on a misty night, low 40 temps, snow melting.
Great image for those conditions.
