Pulsar Talion XG35 Thermal Riflescope

Having just premiered at IWA 2022, Pulsar is expanding the brand new Talion line of mid-range thermal riflescopes. Pulsar Talion XG35 Thermal Riflescope will offer everything that Talion XQ38 put on the table but with better capabilities and optical performance.

Sleek and Strong

  • magnesium alloy 
  • heavy-duty construction → shock resistance 6000 Joules 
  • focus adjustment with tactile marker
  • flexible mounting 
  • fast-removable battery

The new Talion series sports a streamlined design with user-friendly features. Soft-touch control buttons on the top panel of the eyepiece are optimized for easy access mid-use. The multi-point rail is made to fit various types of rifles.

Pulsar Talion XG35 runs on a single APS5 battery which lasts for about 7 hours of continuous use. A shorter battery run time in comparison to the Talion XQ38 model (9 hours) is due to the more powerful XG35 thermal sensor. The battery cover is designed for fast replacement on the go and can be switched in complete dark.

The magnesium housing is lightweight but resistant to hard recoil (up to 6000 Joules) and waterproofed against liquid damage. Made to work under the harshest conditions in the great outdoors, Pulsar Talion XG35 offers smooth operation from -25°C to +50°C.

Optical Properties

  • capable 640x480 @17μm sensor
  • 3 sensitivity levels
  • 2-16x magnification
  • digital zoom: 2x/4x/8x
  • 1024x768 AMOLED display

The biggest upgrade from the Talion XQ38 model is in the sensor resolution. Pulsar Talion XG35's pro-grade Lynred 640x480px sensor captures a high-res image in rich detail.

The thermal sensitivity of Talion scopes is below 40mK, which is more than good enough for hunting purposes. If you are interested in perfect detail recognition, you'd better check out the premium Thermion 2 line with super-sensitive <25mK sensors.

The variable magnification 2-16x is suitable for a wide range of applications. The detection range of Talion XG35's sensor (1750m) will also take you 400 meters further than the XQ38 model. Let us note that the sensor sensitivity on both Talions can be adjusted with 3 amplification levels, so you won't be overwhelmed with needless details.

Shooting Specs

  • high-caliber recoil → 12 gauge, 9.3x64, .375H&H
  • 5 shooting profiles / 50 zeroing distances
  • 10 reticle designs
  • 21/21 clicks
  • picture-in-picture mode → precise aiming

Pulsar Talion XG35 can handle hard recoil. Use it with high-powered calibers of 9.3x64, .30-06, .300, .375H&H or smooth-bore, and pneumatic weapons. It can take it all.

The downside of the  XG35 model is that the clicks are less precise than with Talion XQ38.

Once you zero the Talion XG35 on your rifle, you can save the settings to a shooting profile. There are 5 shooting profiles, with 10 zeroing distances each. The guarantee of seamless Talion XG35 use with 5 different weapons or cartridges is worth the investment.

If shot accuracy is not enough for you, Pulsar enables picture-in-picture display mode for precision aiming.

For shooting at night, Pulsar designed a new touch feature. When the focus is set at 70m, the integrated lever aligns with the tactile marker on top of the housing.

Differences between Talion XQ38 and Talion XG35
