Shooters have numerous uses for rangefinders within the firearms community. Rangefinders can be used for recreational, hunting, or competition purposes to range various objects. Burris Optics is proud to announce its first handheld laser rangefinder with the Signature LRF 2000. The new rangefinder can range reflective targets up to 2,400 yards, non-reflective out to 1,600 yards, and game animals to 1,100 yards with a minimum measuring distance of 5 yards.
Below is the press release for the Signature LRF 2000 from Burris Optics.
Greeley, CO – Burris bridges the gap between the company’s advanced rangefinding riflescopes and rangefinding archery sights with the introduction of the new Signature LRF 2000 handheld rangefinder, delivering blazing-fast results out to 2400 yards. Designed for both firearm and archery applications, the Signature LRF 2000 brings proven Burris quality and innovation to the compact handheld rangefinding platform.
Built into the Burris Signature LRF 2000’s rugged armored rubber exterior is a sophisticated program and laser rangefinding system that allows the user to customize the operation and data feedback for spot-on ranging accuracy in any environmental setting. With its 2,400-yard/2,194-meter ranging capability, the Signature LRF 2000 is accurate to within 1 yard at under 1,000 yards and ±2 yards at ranges over 1,000 yards.
The Signature LRF 2000 presents three operation modes to best meet your shooting environment and targeting needs for fast-range acquisition. For example, the Auto mode displays the range of the target with the strongest return signal. The Sport mode does the same for the closest target in a group. Finally, the Hunt mode displays the farthest range of a group of targets—an especially welcome feature when ranging through branches or tall grass.
Since hunters may encounter game at any angle—especially when hunting in mountainous regions—the Signature LRF 2000 lets you choose a readout to suit your preferred shooting scenario. Five different display options cover line-of-sight (LOS) only, horizontal distance (HOR) only, LOS and HOR, LOS and angle (ANG) above and below horizontal, and HOR and ANG. With this data, shooters can be confident in the ranging and in their trajectory compensation. To maintain real-time ranging, the Signature 2000 LRF’s scan mode offers virtually instantaneous readings by simply holding down the power/ranging button.
In addition to the rubber armored exterior for optimal protection and exceptional grip, the Signature LRF 2000 boasts a sealed nitrogen-filled chassis for waterproof and fog proof performance. The adjustable eyepiece ensures crisp focus of the display for any shooter with its +/-6 diopter adjustment range. And with a 7x magnification, ranging those “way out there” targets has never been more precise.
The Signature LRF 2000 is available now on Burris’s website. The new rangefinder retails for $360, putting it about $60 cheaper than its nearest competitor, the Vortex Viper HD. For more on Burris’s new rangefinder, click here.
