Summary: I purchased it to know the distance of deer when rifle hunting. It is fairly accurate, however the viewing lense is very small and not easy to quickly focus on anything. Also the read out is in black and does not illuminate so it is difficult to quickly see in low light conditions.
Summary: I PURCHASED THE NIKON RIFLEHUNTER 550 RANGEFINDER MAINLY TO BOW HUNT WITH, ALTHOUGH IT WILL ALSO BE USED FOR GUN HUNTING ON OCCASION. I DID A LOT OF RESEARCH PRIOR TO MAKING MY DECISION ON THE NIKON 550. UPON USING THE RANGEFINDER I AM VERY SATISFIED WITH THE PURCHASE.
Must Have For Hunters and a Great Hunter Accessory
5 January 2012
Summary: It's from Nikon, with a lifetime warranty, so it is a great product. The directions on how to load the battery, and how to use it are a little complicated, and not very clearly written for the average user.
