The Swedish Army NIFE A-40-P is the standard bearer for artillery range finders. With an optical range from 100 to 1500 meters, 8x magnification, and no electronics military and civilian shooters know that taking the A-40-P into the field will produce results with no danger of equipment failure. Using the included monopod, it is quite easy to set up the A-40-P next to your shooting station and begin to use it for extreme long distance target shooting applications.
Once you receive your NIFE A-40-P it will be quite easy to understand how it operates. Place your monopod on the A-40-P and position it where you'd like to utilize it for long distance observation and range finding. Look through the view finder and you will see there are two "split" images visible, both of the same target you are observing through the view finder. Use the adjustment wheel to dial both images in so that they are no longer split, and the meter read out next to the image will show you how many meters your target is away from you. No need to worry about batteries, sketchy laser readings, or anything else that is prone to breaking in the field!

This is a very useful item for long-range shooting (as mentioned) - and it will also prove useful for 3-D photography, where it is imperative to know distance to nearest subject, in order to optimally set the separation between the camera lenses (two camera)/lens positions (1 camera). I have a smaller, Wild Heerbrugg optical rangefinder - which works well for shorter distances up to where the NIFE picks up. NO PROBLEMS with OPTICAL rangefinders, once you determine units of measurement! RELIABILTY!

I have not had a chance to use it. Please, some info on where to get a tripod for it and a user manuel .
