The RICO ALPHA is the culmination of decades of user feedback, research, development, and American engineering all imbedded in a thermal weapon-sight that is purpose built for the discerning nighthunter. From the Autoloading Guarded Power Connector (AGPC) to the battery latch design, the RQD Quick Release Mount, to the ultra-rigid housing with Tactile Ridge Positioning and Single Finger Focus(SFF) design, the ALPHA was developed by hunters for absolute performance in every way. Additional performance-based features of the ALPHA include image and video capture, multiple dynamic reticles, stadiametric rangefinder and wireless connectivity. To top all that off, the ALPHA is proudly designed, machined, assembled and serviced right here in the great state of Texas.

The ALPHA features a high-performance iRay Micro II core and an extremely high contrast AMOLED HD display. The ALPHA takes its image processing one step further with Advanced Image Correction and Automatic Image Optimization courtesy of the MATRIX III image algorithm. Unmatched image quality paired with an intuitive and easy-to-use interface, picture-in-picture picture function, 6-hour run time, ultra rigid, glass-filled polymer housing, 1000 G shock resistance and 32 Gb of internal memory gives you all the tools you need to take your hunt to the next level.
