First Impression with the Swaro Laser Guide!

I received my new laser guide yesterday. Put in the battery and out to my deck I went. Bright Sun, first try was a tree across the lake .... 1243! Bingo! I am in love!!

Tried it on several other smaller objects from 200 to 1000 and it never missed a beat. Got up this am before the sun was completely up, shot it across the lake at another further target (house), 1687

So far I am very happy, the display is kinda hard to read in bright conditions. I think that may get better as I learn to hold it correctly.

Functions are simple, and it is easy to hold. I like the small circle sight. It comes with a very neat hard plastic holster that fits on a belt and releases with the push of a button. But it does not give it much protection. I would prefer a case that fit on a belt like the Leica has to protect it better. But that is just me, I can be kinda anal taking care of my expensive equipment.

Just wanted to report, I will be out at a range sunday and give it a better test.

Jeff

Re: First Impression with the Swaro Laser Guide!

Any report that gives the appearance of costing me money is a very bad report.

This is a bad report.;)

Especially when I have, at least on my range, nearly reached the limits of the Leica. Which finally, is a good thing.

I just sold mine here for $375 in one day. I have been watching them sell on flea-bay for $400 to $450.

I don't mind saying I told you so - but only after hearing you say you're happy with the Swaros. There was no comparison between my Leica and the Swarovski's which replaced them. The Swaros are a substantial step up in performance. And I find the glass superior also. Enjoy!
