ATN X-Sight Riflescope: Which One Is Right for You?

ATN's X-Sight LTV


You’re in the market for a riflescope that will work as well during the day as it does after dark. ATN’s X-Sight line is an excellent choice, but you’ll find two different scopes in the line: the X-Sight 4K Pro and X-Sight LTV. How do you know which scope is right for you?

Both the LTV and 4K Pro models feature Enhanced HD night-vision mode, and both offer ATN’s handy one-shot zero feature that makes sighting in fast and easy: Just take a shot, adjust your reticle, and you’re good to go. Multiple reticle options are available in each scope, and both have a weather-resistant housing for durability. A two-year warranty is included with both scopes as well.

The X-Sight LTV and the X-Sight 4K Pro have relatively similar price points, with only about $100 difference between them — the LTV retails starting at $599, while the 4K Pro starts at $699. So what’s the difference?

The most obvious initial difference is that the 4K Pro is a smart digital optic — it has Bluetooth and Wifi capability. While both scopes allow for video recording (the 4K Pro in 1080p and the LTV in 720p), the 4K Pro is also capable of live-streaming in 720p. You can even record and stream at the same time.

The smart capabilities of the X-Sight 4K Pro also allow for handy features such as a ballistic calculator, a smart rangefinder, a smart mil-dot reticle, a profile manager, smooth zoom, an electronic compass, and an e-barometer. It also features recoil-activated video to make filming convenient and foolproof.

The X-Sight LTV, on the other hand, is an everything-you-need-and-nothing-you-don’t scope. Its lack of all those bells and whistles makes it simpler to use. Intuitive and easy, the LTV is practically a grab-and-go product that you can just start using without concerning yourself with a bunch of menus and options. Why pay for smart features if you’re not the type of hunter who plans to use them?

The sensor, core and lens options differentiate the two scopes as well. Both feature enhanced day/night vision, but the LTV uses ATN’s cutting-edge QHD+ Day/Night sensor (2688x1944 ) while the 4K Pro uses the ATN Revolutionary Ultra HD Day/Night sensor (3864x2218). The upgraded sensor in the 4K Pro is higher-resolution and allows for a crisper, higher-quality image. The LTV uses ATN’s Obsidian LT Core, while the 4K Pro features the Obsidian IV Dual Core. The Dual Core allows the 4K Pro to process more data more quickly, which is why this scope can perform multiple functions at once (such as streaming and recording). The lens options, although similar, differ slightly as well, which might be important to you if magnification or field of view is a top priority. The LTV is available with a 3-9X or 5-15X lens, and the 4K Pro is available in a 3-14X or a 5-20X lens.

If size or weight is a concern, the LTV is smaller and lighter — 1.6 pounds as compared to the 4K Pro’s 2.1 pounds. The 4K Pro’s battery life is considerably longer, boasting 18+ hours as opposed to the LTV’s 10+ hours.

Both scopes offer excellent day and night performance. The 4K Pro will appeal to tech-savvy hunters who want loads of options and features. The LTV, with its smaller size and simple-to-use function, is ideal for those who just want to mount a scope and start hunting. You won’t go wrong with either.
