Leica has a long history in the optics industry, particularly when it comes to laser rangefinders. The manufacturer introduced its GEOVID 7×42 BDA Laser Rangefinding binocular back in 1992. In the years since, the company has only continued to innovate in the rangefinder segment.
Now, Leica has released a new compact laser rangefinder capable of precise measurements out to 2,000 yards. The Leica Rangemaster CRF 2000-B is a powerful ranging tool, offering three different ballistic outputs in addition to line of sight measured distances. Shooters can select from the following options: Equivalent Horizontal Range (EHR) up to 1200 yards or Inches of Holdover, and MIL & MOA corrections to .1 decimal point.
The Leica Rangemaster CRF 2000-B offers incredibly fast speeds, generating information to the rangefinder's heads-up four-digit display in just 0.3 seconds. Precise readings are essentially ensured with the rangefinder's included on-board inclinometer and integral air pressure and temperature sensors.
Pairing Leica's “Optical System” with 7x magnification, the Leica Rangemaster CRF 2000-B produces bright, clear, high-contrast images with an excellent, wide field of view. Measuring only 4.5 inches in length and 2.25 inches tall and weighing just 6.5 ounces, the Rangemaster CRF 2000-B is perfect for extended storage in a pocket. And given its waterproof capabilities and ruggedly durable exterior, it's a great companion afield.
The new Leica Rangemaster CRF 2000-B has an MSRP of $799. For more information on this new rangefinder, check out the specifications below and visit the Leica website.
