Check Out the Latest Leica Sport Optics at NRA Annual Meetings

 

Leica Sport Optics invites you to stop by booth #3811 during the NRA 2013 Annual Meeting & Exhibits to see and handle some of its newest products. Leica is officially unveiling the new Leica ER i riflescope models during the NRA event to be held in Houston, Tex., May 3-5 2013. Get a close-up look at the ER i 2.5-10×42 and the ER i 3-12×50 riflescopes, as well as the new Geovid HD-B laser rangefinder binoculars.

Boasting a lean and classic design, the two models feature Leica’s legendary optical performance and the addition of an illuminated red dot, available in three reticle configurations: 4a, Ballistic and IBS.

The ER i features a large and ergonomically designed setting dial on the left side of the riflescope, so even a gloved hunter can easily activate and adjust the illuminated dot on the reticle. Nine brightness settings, as well as clearly defined “On/Off” positions, guarantee a clear and distinct view, even during low-light hours when game animals are most active.

Leica’s sophisticated, energy-saving system ensures maximum battery conservation. On the brightest setting, the battery lifetime in continuous mode is more than 40 hours and more than 210 hours on the intermediate setting. Plus, with Leica’s intelligent “Auto On/Off” function, the illumination will turn off when not in a regular shooting position or when left on unintentionally, providing even longer battery life.

You also won’t want to miss the opportunity to examine the Geovid-HD B. This new laser rangefinder binocular contains advanced ballistics technology enabling users to add/create their own custom ballistics info for their specific firearm as well as class-leading ranging abilities.

The newly developed ballistic function ABC™ (Advanced Ballistic Compensation) provides the proper aim point for the hunter and shooter. The Geovid HD-B’s integrated, highly precise ballistic processor can instantly gather and analyze the ballistic information with one touch of the button, giving accurate information for the correct hold over, turret adjustment or drop down reticle aiming point. When calculating the trajectory, the distance, angle, temperature and air pressure are all taken into account.

Don’t miss out on this opportunity to review the latest in Leica new products and innovations. They’ll be plenty of Leica representatives on-hand to answer your questions regarding the impressive new products.

Leica Introduces CRF 1000-R for Both Gun and Archery Hunters

 

The Leica Sport Optics booth stayed packed throughout the 2013 SHOT Show in Las Vegas with attendees checking out the new Rangemaster CRF 1000-R and other new Leica products.

Redefining accuracy and usability, the Rangemaster CRF 1000-R laser rangefinder provides both gun and bowhunters with fast, accessible, and above all, precise measurements to the target in a simple and efficient format.

Designed for the everyday hunter, the new CRF 1000-R laser rangefinder gives hunters the ability to determine Equivalent Horizontal Range (EHR) using the rifleman’s rule from 10 to 600 yards. The CRF 1000-R takes the guesswork out of your hunt without bogging you down with unnecessary bells and whistles.

Even when viewing small or moving targets in poor weather conditions, the CRF 1000-R will put fast and accurate measurements at your fingertips.

The CRF 1000-R boasts the best and brightest LED display available. Self-regulating capabilities allow it to adjust itself to surrounding light conditions, ensuring its readability at all times.

For its size and price range, the Leica CRF 1000-R’s optics are unsurpassed, providing clear and unambiguous sighting of game, even at longer distances. The CRF 1000-R’s excellent light transmission, wide field of view and impressive 7x magnification combine to deliver remarkable image quality, seen through the comfortable eyepiece. And, thanks to AquaDura™ hydrophobic coating, its lenses are protected from the wear and tear of the hunt.

With optical and electronic components integrated into a magnesium chassis with carbon-fiber-reinforced plastic housing shell, the CRF 1000-R is rugged and durable, as well as precise. The housing (waterproof to a depth of 3.2 ft) also protects the CRF 1000 against even the harshest of weather conditions.

The CRF 1000-R is an ideal companion for the hunter who wants to travel light and fast without sacrificing performance.

Leica’s Rangemaster CRF 1600-B Rangefinder at the NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits

Stop by Leica’s booth at the 2012 NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits in St. Louis, Mo., April 12-15 to check out the new Rangemaster CRF 1600-B compact laser rangefinder.

Born from Leica’s 20-year commitment to continuous laser rangefinding innovation, the Rangemaster CRF 1600-B compact laser rangefinder boasts a unique integrated ballistics system that features three modes of application, 12 ballistic curves and three different zeroing ranges to deliver more accurate ballistics information than ever before. The new standards-setting Leica CRF 1600-B also features intuitive, easy-to-use controls.

At the heart of the CRF 1600-B is the innovative ABC™ (Advanced Ballistic Compensation) system, a high-precision integrated ballistics calculator that combines stored data with analysis of current ballistics parameters, and in a split second, delivers precise details of the required compensation for a point of impact (POI). The ABC™ system processes current ballistics parameters, including not only the measured distance, but also the incline, temperature and absolute air pressure to calculate projectile trajectory. The ABC™ ballistic system addresses the shooter’s needs with one program and delivers the relevant details with a simple push of a button.

For hunters who use classic reticles in their riflescopes, the Leica Rangemaster CRF 1600-B displays the hold-over value in centimeters or inches, in addition to the measured distance. For hunters using a reticle or turret, in which each graduation represents a specific distance, the read-out provides information on the horizontal distance, again factoring in the angle, temperature and absolute air pressure. Hunters using a MOA or mil graduated turret to dial for correction can also display the number of clicks required to properly adjust the POI. In this way, the CRF 1600-B can be perfectly adapted to deliver optimum results in every shooting situation, no matter the firearm and ammunition used.

Class-leading Leica optics technology enables shooters to clearly and vividly assess potential targets over long distances, and the large field of view facilitates rapid targed acquisition. The 7x magnification guarantees superb performance, even in low-light conditions. The CRF 1600-B measures distances from 10.9 yards to approximately 1,600 yards with complete precision in less than .9 seconds. The LED display features automatic brightness control for optimum visibility in all lighting conditions.

Weighing only 8.1 oz, the ergonomic and compact CRF 1600-B fits comfortably in either hand and its carbon-reinforced housing and magnesium chassis ensure that it will stand up to whatever the hunter or Mother Nature dishes out. The hydrophobic AquaDura® lens coating provides additional protection against dirt and water.

Built-in diopter compensation and a special rubber eyecup make the Rangemaster ideal for those with glasses.

The Leica Rangemaster CRF 1600-B will be available from authorized Leica dealers beginning June 2012.
