Hello to you all.

I asked this question on another board with out any luck. So I´m going to see if you can help me with this one.

Have any of you heard of rangefinders from Osprey International? The one I´m thinking of is called EMC4 with a measurement range up to 1600 meters.

Generation 1
Magnification 7x
Deg 8
Power Source 9v Alkaline or Lithium
Dimentions 120 x 122 x 60 mm
Weight 18 oz

Please tell me if you know anything about this and if you think they are good enough for the price.

Greetings from Iceland

Greeting from next door in Ireland.

I do not own a laser rangefinder but one is on my list.

While you are waiting for a more informed reply, perhaps my post will be of interest to you.

From the posts I have read on this site, the Lecia laser rangefinders seem to be the way to go interms of quality of build and ease of use.

I have not been able to track down information on the Osprey models so I cannot tell you anything about them.

The Lecias do not go to 1600M, I think 1200M max,but if you want to go that far, perhaps you should follow this link:-

Kindest regards

Haven't heard of them up to this point.

Here's a link to their site, maybe someone will recognize the device and if possible the OEM for this laser rangefinder.

It looks pretty much exactly like a Newcon Optic LRM 1500.

They do look a bit alike, here's the Newcom 1500.

Maybe one has the image inverted so we see a left and right version??

Maybe a bit to much of a thing to take out when hunting caribous.

I will maybe by me self a Leica but my local dealer was offering me the Osprey very cheap. But it scares me a little that no one has ever heard of the osprey.

Thanks for the post

My Brother just ordered a set of the new Leica 10x42 Geovids last week. Should be testing them here shortly.

Keep us posted Brent. I am very interested in the Leicas as well. I may just have to sell my Swaros to buy a Leica rangefinder/bino.

Dimitrios,

How do I get small furry critters to carry a board around?
