Leica Vector

Greetings,
My search for a truly long-range range finder has led me to the Leica Vector. Has anyone used one of these before?
If so, where did you purchase it from and what was its price point?

Thanks for the help,

Re: Leica Vector

Sorry, I missed this one. This past spring I bought a Leica Locator Plus, the 4,000 yard civilian-named version of the Vector. Identical to the Vector IV in other features.

$6,700 from TPS Group in Cnicago.
1-312-280-1219

I feel I finally have a rangefinder that works for a long range hunter!

The newer PLRF looks interesting, too. Probably less money.

Re: Leica Vector

I would love to know more about the Vector and the high dollar one that Len has.

Pictures? How much for the vector?

Re: Leica Vector

HI!

I have used the Leica vektor for a couple of years.

Positiv:

- Ranges beyond 2500 yards, actully on one clear morning 3126 yds.
- 6 x 42 bino "included"
Vary from yds to meters
- The housing is very resistant to about anything, if you know what i mean.
- The elctronic compass, is one of the best i have ever used, mils or degrees, you can measure angles up or down, very fast to find the slant range.
Measure angles between 2 points in the field.
- You can use a GPS whith it and lase a point in the field and get a 10 digit UTM or Lat long directly.

Thanks!

Re: Leica Vector

Sorry I forgot negative, if anyone cares?

The only thing I dint like about it is that i am sure it could be a bit smaller.
The laser a bit mor powerfull, so you can get the distnace although it snows or theres light fog.

My Leica Locator Plus, civilian named version, ranges out to over 4k yards. It works in rain pretty darn well. Not the heaviest downpours but probably 3/4 of the rainfalls one would encounter. Same with snow and fog. Yes, it is big and heavy but in a lot of cases its binocular function means you may not need a separate binoc.
