Leica has announced the release of it’s latest addition to the Rangemaster lineup of compact rangefinders. More recently we’ve seen the release of the 2700-B, which was announced near the end of last year and is currently available. The 2400-R will be highly attractive for many with an extremely reasonable price point of only $499. We anticipate the Leica 2400-R to be available in late September/early October, and it is available for pre-order now by using the button below, or by visiting our retail store in South Burlington, VT.
Here’s Leica’s press release with additional information regarding the 2400-R:
With the new Leica CRF 2400-R, Leica Sport Optics (Wetzlar) presents a laser rangefinder which allows distance determination of up to 2,400 yards (2,200 metres). In addition, the Leica Rangemaster CRF 2400-R offers a new LED display for even better readability of the scanned distance and ballistic data.
The LED display adjusts itself automatically to the ambient light and ensures even more precise as well as faster readability. Another remarkable feature is the extremely fast scan mode, which scans the environment and the relevant targets every 0.3 seconds and displays the required measuring results accurately. Up to a measuring distance of 200 yards (200 metres) the Leica Rangemaster CRF 2400-R provides the measuring results in decimal figures, enabling even more precise distance measurement.
As its predecessor model Leica Rangemaster CRF 1600-R, the new Leica Rangemaster CRF 2400-R determines the equivalent horizontal range (EHR) relevant for hunting up to a distance of 1,200 yards (1,100 metres) when required. With this feature the Rangemaster 2400-R provides the practical angle-compensated distance, which is essential for an accurate long-distance shot. This makes the Leica Rangemaster CRF 2400-R a true all-rounder and provides hunters and long-range shooters with all crucial data.
In only 0.3 seconds the Rangemaster calculates all the important parameters with utmost precision. Thanks to its compact form it fits easily into any pocket – weighing no more than 185 grams. The outstanding optics with a 7x magnification ensures the best image brightness and a wide field of view.
