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 Rangemaster CRF 1600 Wins Field & Stream’s “Best of the Best”

The Leica Rangemaster CRF 1600 has won a Field & Stream 2011 “Best of the Best” Award for Best New Rangefinder.

According to F&S, “Leica‘s Rangemaster CRF 1600 is small, compact, and easy to use. The weight was a good compromise between lightness and the heft needed to hold steady. The CRF provided repeated consistent readings out to 1,300 yards.”

Before a product earns recognition as “Best of the Best,” it must undergo field testing by F&S experts. In all, 150 products were tested, and 26 were deemed fit enough to earn “Best of the Best” honors.

“Field & Stream’s recognition of the Leica CRF 1600 is an acknowledgement to our brand tradition of outstanding product quality and innovation and to the efforts of our engineers and product development people,” says Terry Moore, vice president of Sport Optics for Leica Camera Inc.

The CRF 1600 is perfect for the hunter who wants a lightweight rangefinder with heavy duty performance. The impressively bright optics feature a 7x magnification and integrated diopter compensation, ideal for low-light conditions. The CRF offers a wide field of view, steady image and clear distance display leaving you with no doubt about whether or not to take the shot.

The Rangemaster CRF is held vertically making it easier to use for both left-handed and right-handed hunters. Weighing just 7.8 oz, the extremely lightweight and ergonomically designed rangefinder sits comfortably in the palm of your hand.

As its name suggests, the Rangemaster CRF 1600 measures accurately up to 1,600 yards and is incomparable for delivering complete, accurate information essential for a perfect shot.

FS: LEUPOLD Laser Rangefinder from Webyshops.com

FS: LEUPOLD RX-1000i TBR Laser Rangefinder, DNA, Mossy Oak Break-Up (112180)

Counter Demo. Open Box.  Full Warranty.

Our Price: $399

In the course of business we sometimes get returns from our customers.  These units often come back with the box open, but most if not all parts, manuals and packaging still intact.  We can not ship these units as new, but we do have to clear them out.  These are sold on the first come first serve basis.  You can place the order by emailing us at info@webyshops.com and copy the product name and price into the subject line.  Put the name of the forum in the parentheses for our reference.   Please include your address if you want us to quote you shipping time and cost.  You will receive an email back with an estimate (if the scope is still available) or notification that it has been sold.  If you approve, we will email you a PayPal payment request that you can pay securely in the privacy of your own home.  Alternatively, you can always call in your order and check on availability.

The LEUPOLD RX-1000i TBR Laser Rangefinder, DNA, Mossy Oak Break-Up (112180) is designed to provide uncompromised ranging accuracy with plenty of features that deliver the best performance possible.

The Digitally eNhanced Accuracy (DNA), a next-generation Leupold technology, not only increases ranging speed, but makes the RX-1000i accurate to 1/10 of a yard against all background colors and textures. DNA also provides the RX-1000i with greater ranging capability against soft targets such as deer and trees.

The advanced RX-1000i TBR with DNA model also offers Leupold’s exclusive True Ballistic Range technology to help place shots with exceptional accuracy. It provides accurate aiming information matched to the performance of your rifle. By calculating the incline, line of sight range to the target, and a projectile’s ballistics, your rangefinder provides rifle hunters the correct equivalent horizontal distance for precise shooting on an incline.

Maximum range of the RX-1000i TBR with DNA is 1,000 yards (914.4 meters) on reflective targets. Minimum range is 6 yards (5.5 meters). In bow mode, maximum range is 125 yards (114.3 meters). Scan mode provides continuous range updates to help stay on target when tracking movement or scanning an area. Measurements are provided in yards or meters.

Multi-coated lens system produces a bright, pristine image, helping to transmit 80 percent of available light to the eye – three times greater than the light transmission of traditional Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) leupold range finder models. Actual 6x magnification and a vivid red Organic Light Emitting Diode (OLED) display also make it easier to spot and range game, even through dark timber and in low-light conditions.

The RX-1000i TBR Laser Rangefinder allows you to choose any one of the three selectable reticles: Leupold Plus Point, Duplex and Duplex with Leupold Plus Point. The Plus Point reticle is ideal for varmints and other small targets. Small open center avoids coverage of very small or distant targets. The Duplex is a familiar reticle to shooters from riflescopes – draws eye to the center, easy to see, does not cover the target in the center where aiming is most critical.

The leupold RX1000 TBR is simply the smartest, most advanced laser rangefinder you can put in your pocket. And with its compact size, it is the perfect fit for bowhunters and rifle hunters alike.

The RX-1000i TBR with DNA comes with a Cordura holster, battery, lanyard, and complete instructions.

Vendetta Archery Rangefinders

The new Leupold® Vendetta™ bow-mounted rangefinder will revolutionize the way you hunt and dramatically improve your chance of hanging meat on the pole. Not since the introduction of the compound bow has there been such a dramatic innovation in bowhunting. Vendetta gives you an instant and precise digital readout of your target range – at full draw – with no excessive movement and less busted game. Simply push the trigger pad and Vendetta continually adjusts distance, angles and elevation as your target moves. Shoot with stealthy confidence that’s dead on (don’t forget a sharp knife for field-dressing).

  • True Ballistic Range (TBR®) …The Vendetta automatically calculates incline/decline and distance to your target, and bow-specific ballistics to deliver the most accurate measurement possible. Our patented technology gives equivalent horizontal distance for precise shooting on an incline. No guesswork involved, just range and shoot.
  • One-Touch Continuous Scan…Hold the trigger pad down and continuously range an animal as it moves. No need to guess distances or work from pre-ranged markers. You get an accurate range every step of the way.
  • Laser Dot Alignment…Easily sync your Vendetta with your pins with the integrated sighting laser. Zero a target with the pin of your choice then align the laser dot with the same target. Now you’re “zeroed” and ready to range quickly and accurately.
  • Legendary Toughness…The Vendetta lives up to Leupold’s legendary standards for rugged durability. A durable polycarbonate body protects it from the elements, and the bumps and knocks of a typical hunt. You’ll be ranging with Vendetta for a good long time. We guarantee it.
  • Bow Mounted…The universal mounting system of the Vendetta mounts to the riser on any modern compound bow. It can be mounted for both right- and left-handed bows. The durable aluminum mount easily adjusts left and right, and up and down. The ball joint allows for further fine-tuning when mounting.
  • Compact Size…At less than 10oz and just 3” tall, the Vendetta will not adversely affect the weight of your bow or your visual field. You get a big time advantage in a compact package.
  • Battery Powered…The CR2 lithium battery provides thousands of activations, so the Vendetta can outlast even the longest season.
  • LED Display…Specially engineered for excellent visibility under any lighting conditions.
  • Trigger Activated…The ergonomic pressure trigger pad mounts comfortably on your bow grip. Natural hand position for instinctive easy activation with no excessive movement.
  • Legal for recreational archery in all U.S. states, permitted for hunting for more than 2/3rds of America’s 3.5 million bowhunters – View the list of states in which the Vendetta is legal for hunting.
