The BR2 is the only rangefinder to date that takes real time atmospheric data and uses it to create accurate drops.

Re: Gunwerks G7 BR2 Rangefinder Review

Whats the warranty? How many years? What does it cover?

I read somewhere that the unit is only rated to 32F. So if i hunt Montana and its 25F outside will it break the unit? Or is it that it only gives corrections down to 32F? How does that work?

I have heard of rangefinders breaking due to the cold. If i invest $1,600 in this unit what are the warranty details if it breaks on me?

I've used it in -15c, and it was fine no trouble. It gets cold here in Alberta. I think the warranty is for a year.

Re: Gunwerks G7 BR2 Rangefinder Review

My BR2 arrived last week. I took it right out that evening and was ranging elk and horses in the fields below my house to over 1300 yards. The past two mornings I have purposely ranged cattle directly into the sun. At ranges out to the mid-800's there was no problem. Beyond that if I shielded the sun from shining directly into the lens with my hand, I was able to range 1100+ yards, as long as the cows were standing in grass. When standing in the middle of a bright snow patch I could not get out that far. Turning a little so I was not shooting directly into the sun I was able to range dirt hillsides, bushes, whatever, out to the 2000 yard range of the unit. This is an impressive rangefinder. I was looking at the Terapin PLR05, an ACI, and Exbal on a PDA, but this should be so much simpler for the 1200 yards I want to extend to this year. Can't wait to test it out shooting whistle pigs this year. As soon as the mud dries a little it's going to Utah for some prairie dog shooting.

Re: Gunwerks G7 BR2 Rangefinder Review

In regards to comparing this to the Swaro unit, I love my G7, and never fell in love w/ the Swaro. It ranges much faster, farther and has the kestral and pda built right in so to speak. They are about the same size to boot. It has 4 different levels of brightness for the reticle. The reticle for some reason is a weak point in my opinion. On my leica's you can always see the reticle and I am always farting around trying to find the sweet spot on this. At least it allows you to adjust it. I got mine in Aug?? and they had a voluntary recall. They took great care of it, reloaded all of my data and returned it.
I have hunted w/ it in 0 degree weather, didn't seem to be a problem.
I used to take my kestral and pda, find a solution and compare. After a while of comparision, I now usually leave the kestral at home. I only shoot for fun past 1400 and then need to run it on my phone. Two thumbs up here.
