[color:#CC0000][/color]Laser Range Finding isn’t a new feature :

Pulsar brought it to market years ago, typically it rides on the side of the unit and can be somewhat effective in getting ranges on targets depending on circumstances.

Typically available on Pulsar’s upper level scopes it would cost the buyer an additional $ 800 to 1000 dollars.

Nvision now offers it on their flagship XRF model - $ 10k

Iray came out with an add on LRF for specific models (RL42 and RL50) and that unit is a $ 700 upgrade

There may be a few standalone units that hunters can use but getting them aligned with a thermal scope is problematic.

So, in January 2022 there is even more options coming to market from a couple of companies that are currently offering well-performing / affordable thermal units. Of particular note is the way in which the LRF is integrated with the scope housing , top dead center and low profile. VERY nice !

384 model


640 model


What makes a product like this interesting ????

The features and price and particular performance of the core/sensor AND ability to see further (clearer) and identify game for utilizing the LRF to make shots.

In years past the core/sensor and base mags could’ve been considered a limiting factor to taking shots beyond 200 yards with a high degree of accuracy.

It’s now going to be a bit easier …

Bering Optics is also working on this type of feature for a future model of their thermal scopes !

This may be THE YEAR of LRF for the masses especially in the high base mag (3 and 4x) 384 units at a cost of under $ 4k.

Stay tuned , AGMs should be hitting shelves just around SHOT Show 2022.

Nice! The LRF on my Trail2 has been absolutely invaluable. We coyote and pig hunt various properties totaling 18,000 acres in east Texas. Very little of that is dense brush with the majority being either hayfields or pecan orchards.
