Leica 1200 Rangemaster
This is 1200 for sale here I think the guy wanted 475. It's a great rangefinder I have been happy with mine. I upgraded to a vectronix but still use this when the ranging power of the terrapin isn't needed

I have the ARC and have ranged out to 1300 yds, very hard to keep it steady and it will only read that far when steady. I will try to figure out a way to keep it from moving without a tripod

Re: Rangefinder opposed to want...

I replaced my dedicated rangefinder with a Bushnell ARC 1 Mile binocular rangefinder in 10 X 42 and am very happy with its accuracy and programmable features. And then there is the fact that I don't have to carry both a rangefinder and separate binoculars.

The ARC 1 Mile glass is good but not excellent however I'm paying for the excellent range finding and can put up with "merely" good glass. For a few thousand more I can get Geovids, but I haven't won the lottery yet.
