Re: Gunwerks G7 BR2 Rangefinder Review

Thank you contributors for all of the inputs on the G7. Just one question for those who have one. Is there a data port for software updating or table sync'ing?

I don't think that their is a data port.
I'm out though and can't check it but I do not recall seeing any.

Re: Gunwerks G7 BR2 Rangefinder Review

Hi folks, I have read every page of this topic and you are all right on every issue here and heres why, YOU all like the extended range of the G7 and the versatility that It offers, It seems like Dad buying you a new pickup for your 21st birthday and then telling you that your band from driving,

This unit is so perfect but then you hit that brickwall, (NO MIL READING) and this is such a crime because although my range finder does'nt quite go as far as this one it does give me no less than four types of setup's so no matter what type of scope I use I can change it at the push of a button and at a third of the price and for 14-$1600 it should also walk out and skin your game too,

but really all these things should be standard on it and not force people to go low tec and have to stick bits of paper on 2- $8000 rifles etc Or even worse thought that some of you Guy's even might ditch many of your $1000 and up scopes just so you can use this LR, its just wrong,

I to have run into the issue of being stopped from buying optics because of US retail/company agreements and it sucks, and I hate being told that they wont ship to me because of these stupid self promoting agreements, personally I would not buy anything where I'm told this

thats like buying a truck and being told I cant have the V8, If I'm paying/driving it then I'll decide what is and what ain't

John

Oh Sorry I forgot something, If you want to see what type/shape beam your LR's put out just use a NVD/nightscope/binoculars and check it in a darkend room,

Re: Gunwerks G7 BR2 Rangefinder Review

So your complaint is no solutions expressed in MIL, correct?
I use MOA, so no matter to me, but for you guys that use MIL it won't work. It would seem to me that it should have had MIL calculations right from the start. Depending on your scope, would it be possible to instal a custom BDC turret that would work with the unit?

I'm windering ifyou could have a yardage turret made if the data provided was based on a Mil conversion to MOA. You would then use the yardage mode in the unit.
