    It looks like Burris scoured the earth to find the ugliest rifle in existence--this in order to perhaps make that scope look good by comparison, which it still does not.

    I dunno... maybe in another decade or two... I used to call Glocks ugly too, but pretty is as pretty does. We'll have to see...

    looks like a copy of that unsuccesful European attemt 10 years ago, was that zeiss or swarovski that did it. cant remember.
    its too bulky, has to low magnification, and the laser isn't powerful enough.
    that thing will be bought by hunters who think it is the answer to long range problems,it will be disapointing and will go the same was as the previous model.

    It was Swarovski 3-12x50 with a 600m laser built in. Mega bucks at the time - then many were reduced to 1/2 price,(anyone want a 600m laser today?).

    Re: Laser Rangefinding Riflescope

    One of these days we'll be really high tech. We'll have a riflescope which isn't the size of a can of oatmeal, but still has LRF abilities--plus... plus [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] The scope will be computerized, and will accept ballistic data from your particular cartridge, and after it lasers a target successfully, it will move the crosshair image (on a sort of heads up display) to the correct point for that distance. Point and shoot, yes.

    Then the next generation of wonder-scope will employ a seperate, wider laser path which illuminates dust particles in the air and gives back a wind reading. It will have a default setting to automatically impute the windage correction as well as the elevation correction.

    Probably will take all the fun out of everything... [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]
