    The LRF's were not as good as the current CRF's. But they were a pretty good rangefinder. I would say if you can get by with a RF that will range to 600 yards you will be ok with it. That said you could probably find a used 1200 CRF for around $400 and that is a far better unit.

    Curtis you are more than welcome. If you do look for a Leica 1200 CRF know that they came in 2 models, the 1200 CRF-Y and the 1200 CRF-M Y being yards and M being Meters. The 1200 CRF-Y (yards) is most common. If you are not sure which one you are looking at I think there was a sticker in the battery compartment to indicate.
