Nikon Rifle Hunter 1000 Rangefinder
Has any one had a chance to use one in the field? How much actual distance can you get out of them ranging an animal? How would you rate their: speed of ranging, LED layout, LED readability/brightness, ruggedness, angle compensation.
I haven't seen any pop up around Anchorage yet. I was wanting to take a look at one and decide if I should give it a try or just order up a Leica.
Picked one up at Wasilla Sportsman, so far superb, I have taken it everywhere to spot anything, It's the 6 x 21 magnification, so 1000 is hard to hold but I have ranged to 700ish w/ not problems, I'm in Eagle River if you want to check it out I have it in truck daily in Anchorage too, I wish you could choose the LED but it switches to red in low light, you have to focus your view a little different with the RED but it easier to see, so once your on your mark it works for me, looking forward to next years hunt.
Thanks for the reply. I was waiting for Sportsmans in Anchorage to get the Nikon in but after a few weeks I went ahead and bought a Leica. I was wanting to have it before a goat hunt I just got back from. I'm happy with the Leica. Glad to hear the Riflehunter is living up to expectations.
