LEICA CRF 1600 WARRANty

Hi guys....I know this was discussed on a thread somewhere else but couldn't locate it. I just wanted to update everyone on the problem that I had with my 1600 not working except on "ranging" mode. I sent it in directly to Leica and they delivered a new one today "no questions asked"! It is dumping snow today so I can not fully check it out, but it did range the farthest target that I can see presently at 454 yards through the snow so my guess is, it is ok. Will keep you posted on a better day.......Rich

Good news. Nice when a company comes through.

Good to hear it got resolved! I am having the same problem you were with it not ranging reliably past about 600 yds unless I use the scan mode. Let me know how the new one works.

Also, how long did it take to ship it to them and get a new one back? I don't want to lose it for the whole winter.

Thanks!
Ryan

Re: LEICA CRF 1600 WARRANty

I just got one from cabelas, it wouldnt range sagebrush past 197 yards, large rocks past 300, antelope past 540, and took several tries to get a reading at all, i could range a white truck at 540s, i thought it may have been the battery so i replaced it with new and in the dark i was ranging houses at 2040 and moving cars at 1860, as soon as the sun came up i went back outside and the furthest thing i could range was a giant shiny shop at 800, i was pretty disapointed so i called leica and they said it was bad and to send it in so it shipped yesterday. i hope the new one works. they are paying for shipping also.

It sounds like they must have had several out that were bad. The good news is, they are taking care of the problem. We finally have a clear day so I hope to get out and see if my replacement is any better......good luck/Rich
