I have seen pictures and that is about it.  Personally, the cheapest range-finders that I would go with is something from Nikon.  They are a widely used, known quality.  The one thing about anything optics related, price is generally a pretty good indicator of quality.  There are always exceptions and this could be one.  But, why take the chance?

Some of the Osprey products are identical to Newcon.

 

Newcon products seems to be either hit or miss.

I have a Osprey International model EMC4 Comet laser range finder.  I believe I paid $269.00 for it.  If you are not looking into the sun, it will range trees to 600 yards, black cow will range to 400 yards, a red cow to 425 yards, and a fence post to 300 yards.  As I have had no other experience with range finders, I am certainly no expert.  I do however, find this range finder to be dissappointing on animals.  We like to shoot prairie dogs and find that it is not adequate beyond 400 yards.  Sometimes it will range the dirt, hillside, or a rock.  And sometimes it won't.  Sometimes it will range a tree, sometimes not.  I have found the brighter the day, the worse it works.  If it is overcast, it will range further.  If you are shooting in the afternoon and have to range an object toward the sun, even on the ground well below the horizon, it will not work.  It has caused me to be a bit gun shy on buying range finders, although I would like to find one that would range an animal such as a deer, elk, or cow to 600 yards, CONSISTANTLY. 

 

Does anyone have any experience with a quality range finder that would do this?

 

Good hunting! Dawg Hunter
