Troubleshooting Rangefinders


Why am I not getting a range?

You may not be getting a range for a number of different reasons:

  1. Atmospheric conditions
  2. Stability
  3. Type of target
  4. Distance of target (some are farther than you think)
  5. Size of target
  6. Dirty laser lens
  7. Finger is over the laser

I have an ‘1800 yard capable’ (or insert any maximum range) rangefinder, but can’t range 1800 yards.

There are many reasons as to why you may not be able to the reach the maximum range on your rangefinder. The most common is type of target. The maximum distance is given using a reflective target. With non-reflective targets (animals) you will likely have to cut that range in half. The color and size of the target, stability, atmospheric conditions all play a factor as well. Ranging darker or black targets, smaller targets, through fog, over water, or into the sun will make it more difficult to get a reading back on your rangefinder.


Why does one tube in my Fury have a blue tint and the other doesn’t?

This is the tube that the LCD display is in.
