What has happened to the price for FLIR Rifle Scopes, after they disclosed that they will no longer sell to the public. Now they only sell these to Military and Law Enforcement.

So has the price of the few available rocketed up.......or still about the same........????

Thank you for any help.

I couldn't find any notice on Flir's web site stating no sales to public.
They released a statement to the public on the 21'st Jan. through the SHOT Show. I'll see if I can find it.

The ones I have seen are 10 to 12 thousand. I would love to have one on my AR, but..........

We have a few department owned rifles equipped with FLIR and several hand helds with and without video recording. They were not inexpensive and well outside of the average person's budget. Fortunately there are other options available to the public. Optics Planet is a good place to start looking.

By the way FLIR is getting into the gov't spy market with drones and other devices.
