Re: swarovski laser guide

The circle is too big, but you should easily be able to hit an 18" plate @ 500 yds. I'd try a new battery and if that doesn't work send it back to them and they will make it right.

You should be able to easily range that plate at 500 yards. Try changing your battery. If that doesn't work, you'd better contact Swarovski and have them look at it.

Re: swarovski laser guide

Jeff300 , that's not a surprise . I got TWO duds , before I got a good one . Problem was Repeatibility i.e. vastly different readings on the same Target . Someone also reported same problem not long ago . Sure , try a new battery . If that fails , call your friendly Swaro. Rep as listed in the Buyers Guide . You will need a return number , etc . If you read the Guide very carefully , you will also see that Swaro. will re-imburse for Shipping so keep track of that . I know because I read it , and even the Swaro. people were surprised when I pointed this out to them. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Re: swarovski laser guide

I just got one 2 days ago and I got it to range a tree at 2000 yards. I must say it's a little finicky however it's the best one on the market by far.
