    I noticed the PLRF on the Leica site, Mindcrime, if you get in touch with the dealer could you get a price for that unit as well?

    Thanks,

    Steve

    They look nice that's for sure, hope they're not too spendy, think that's asking too much? Nice to know they are eye safe though. The prices will be interesting. Keep us posted. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

    Any updates? It seems as if Leica isn't in a big hurry to sell the Vector to us lowely civilians. The best I've come up with so far is:
    http://www.fltgeosystems.com/Catalog/Surv/it070006.html

    That's the Vector 1500 GMD which is more suited to survey/construction type uses but I don't see why it wouldn't work for hunting.

    It's out of my price range anyway. Say S1, with all your connections ( [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img] ) you wouldn't happen to know a bunch of people that have recently upgraded to the Vector IV who are looking to sell their 1500's really cheap would you? Otherwise it looks like I'll be waiting 20 years or so for these things to start showing up in the Army/Navy Surplus stores.... [img]images/icons/frown.gif[/img]

    I am encouraged, however, just knowing the technology exists to make an eyesafe unit so effective. Hopefully some other companies will catch on and the competition will eventually drive down the price.
