Laser rangefinder options????

What are the options other than the leica or the swaro?? I keep hearing about a "russian submarine rangefinder" but they are hard to find and not eyesafe which makes them illegal. were can a guy find one of these, i heard they range to 12 miles

I personally like the Nikon Monarch 800. I think that it is a great all around rangefinder for not a lot of money.

How far do you want to range under the worst conditions?

+1 on the nikon. I have an older buckmaster 800 and a new Leica 1200 and I've looked through the nikon monarch 1200. I feel the ranging ability is very comparable between the leica and the new nikon. The leica has much better glass however.

Will the Nikon get you to 1K under very bright sunny days in the Desert? I known that the Leica will not.. The Swarovski will.. Any others?

The Bushnell Arc 1500 is great for the money but my Swarovski will range to 1998 yards. Either go farther than I care to shoot at game. The 800 yard models i have tried including the Nikon and Lieca rarely would approach 800 on anything but the most reflective surfaces.
