Whats your range finder or choice, looking to purchase one
Whatever is on sale
I have a leica 1600 I paid quite a bit for and my dad and brother just got sig kilo rangefinder much cheape . Imho the kilo is the way to go. Crazy impressed for the money.
No matter what brand be sure that it takes a 9V battery instead of the expensive CR2 battery.
I have an old nikon. Never let me down. Pick one up cheap used if you can
Guess I’m the one with bad luck. I bought a Nikon 3 years ago. First year worked great, 2nd year wouldn’t power up. I replaced battery still nothing. Contacted Nikon expecting great customer service... they informed me the lifetime warranty does not include rangefinders if you read fine print. They said to send it to them (I pay shipping) and they would look at it and repair it for ballpark 75-150 dollars! I did not send it in. This year it decided to start working part of the time if you play with the battery terminal underneath the battery.
I bought one of those cheap halo rangefinders, and I will say the quality is nowhere near the Nikon, it is harder to read the yardage in it. But it works every time I pick it up. The Nikon is hit or miss
What model was yours? I think mine is called model 440 and bought it used over 20 years ago.
I’ve had a Nikon Monarch 800 for 20 years without the first problem. I would like to have a new Nikon that will read the true distance from a tree stand. Anyway, I’d go Nikon if it were me buying.
Nikon x 2
Nikon is a great one to get. I think some of the bushnell upper end models aren’t to bad.
Get you some electrical contact cleaner ,clean the battery contacts good, put a new battery in it, nine times out of ten corrosion is the problem , batteries go bad, and corrosion stops contact.
