Re: barr&stroud rangefinder

The Barr & Stroud and Wilde rangefinders are differnt brands and made in different countries.

There are some very good units and many rebuilt ones from resellers that may or may not function well. I have seen several rebuilt units that would not hold calibration, but the good ones are fairly rugged.

I bought an original Barr and Stroud several years ago from a collector. I paid $750 and it has been spot on ranging targets to extreme distances (over 10K meters).

Hope this helps

Re: barr&stroud rangefinder

the wild rangefinders are going for $300.00 to $500.00 depending on condition. to see if it works range on an object several times on different days and see if you get the same reading.
I have a wild dated 1972 it is great for ground hogs and looks brand new, bought in 1992

Talk to Jerry Phillips in PA. He is an expert in these and often has several for sale.
