Sightmark's Wraith Mini Thermal Riflescope Wins “Technology of the Year” Award

MANSFIELD, TEXAS – Sightmark’s Wraith Mini 2-16x35mm digital riflescope has received Guns & Ammo’s “Tech of the Year” award for 2023.

The Wraith Mini 2-16x35mm thermal riflescope stood out among its competitors thanks to its exceptional combination of digital infrared (IR) technology and a 384x288-resolution thermal sensor. This innovative product delivers crisp, focused images that perform exceptionally well in both day and night conditions. Some key features of the Wraith Mini are the 2X optical magnification and 1-8x digital zoom presented through an OLED display, which effectively magnify targets with remarkable clarity.

The Wraith Mini's 1024x768 display resolution ensures that even when digitally magnified to 8x, the image quality remains top-notch, making it ideal for close-to-medium-range engagements. Users have the choice of viewing images in rich color or grayscale, and the device maintains excellent clarity even when contrasting thermal variations exist between objects and the surrounding environment.

"This recognition by Guns & Ammo magazine is a testament to our commitment to pushing the boundaries of technology and delivering exceptional products to our customers," says James Sellers, Sightmark’s founder and CEO. “Sightmark continues to push the envelope with the latest technological innovations in the optics industry for the hunting and shooting community.”

Sightmark continues to raise the bar in the firearms industry, and the Wraith Mini's recognition as the Technology of the Year is a testament to their commitment to innovation and excellence.

These assessments include rigorous testing, training events, and hunting expeditions over the past 12 months, ensuring that only the most deserving products earn their place as award recipients.
