The RICO ALPHA thermal scope is the culmination of decades of user feedback, research, development, and American engineering all brought together in a thermal weapon sight that is purpose built for the discerning night hunter. The ALPHA was developed by hunters for absolute performance in every way, as evidenced by the Autoloading Guarded Power Connector (AGPC), the battery latch design, the RQD Quick Release Mount, the ultra-rigid housing with Tactile Ridge Positioning, and Single Finger Focus (SFF) design.
There’s much more to the ALPHA: 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 in Texas, while being backed by iRayUSA’s 5-year warranty with a 5-day repair guarantee. During the 5-year warranty period, iRayUSA will repair or replace, at its discretion, any optic that becomes defective from normal use. If they cannot repair an optic in less than one week, they will offer a replacement in like or better condition.
Detection range reaches 2400 yards. The ALPHA features a high-performance 12 µm iRay Micro II core with 640x480 resolution 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, an 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.

iRayUSA is a Texas-based designer, manufacturer, and distributor of premium thermal night vision devices that was established in 2020 to take advantage of more than 25 years of thermal sales, development, use and experience. While they are proud of their past industry experience, iRayUSA is most proud of their time spent in the field using thermal, and that is what drives them to make the best products possible. Products that they want to use as hunters.
This connection with their customer base is what makes iRayUSA different. It not only allows them to bring the most relevant products to market, it also confirms the need to support those products after the sale. Just like iRayUSA would expect products to be supported if they were the customer.
