Leupold GX-3i2 Rangefinder

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

So, LSW has inspired me to buy my first rangefinder.  

 

It's due to come in today but I was curious if anyone had this rangefinder already and what their thoughts on it were?

Don't have it. But rest comfortably. It's a Leupold. It's really, really good.

I have this and have been very please with it, I really like the scan mode on it, it is supper fast. The red site is great even when the sun is really bright. Both myself and my son use it, he plays for the HS so it has had a lot of use and would buy again if needed.

Two things with this unit not a big deal but.

1. Every once in a while it locks up if you are in a hurry it take a few seconds to reset, I think it is due to not letting it power up and expecting it just start. I had the same issue with the previous model so I know it is not an issue with the unit it self.

2. I wish the case was a little better for the price I would think it would come with a more sturdy one.

Both are not a deal breaker, great unit I am sure you will enjoy.

Locks up?

 

Since I don't have the unit itself yet, does it have a hard power on and a sleep mode power on or something?

It has a power on and it turns its self off, but I think it is we expect it to be instant and it does not have time to lock on maybe?

We wait a second or two and it is ready, I don't really have an answer other then it happens every so often and it happened on the GX3I also.

But as I said I would buy it again, my father in law has a Bushnell with slope I still would buy a GX3i2 even though it is a bit more money.

Of course it's raining and there are flood warnings. *sigh*[
