Well put together..Not what I expected as to its use
10 November 2013
Summary: This was a gift for a 15year old boy. He checked it out and then gave it to his younger sister...He was not thrilled with the limited enhancement it offered so he asked me for a REAL SET OF RANGEFINDERS...........ps...he has been playing golf and hunting since he was 10 and excels at each.............
Summary: There is a reason that Laser and GPS units cost what they do; they work. This device is a low magnification monocular, with measurement "grid" on the optical lens for "estimating " distances. Lot of work for very little accuracy.
Summary: The measuring bar inside the lens provides questionable range data. If you mounted this on a bipod it could possibly provide accurate data, but I can use my naked eye and get a closer range estimate than this scope provides.
Summary: You get what you pay for. This was ~$20, and didn't expect the world out of it. It has a very simplified distance gauge on the inside of the lens, essentially you line up the pin with the line inside the viewing scope, and you can "tell" how far you are away. It will basically tell you if you are 200 yards, 100 yards, 75 or 50 yards out. If you can't tell that on your own, then this might help. Don't expect it to tell you exactly how close you are.
