SilencerCo’s Rail-Mounted Range Finder

SilencerCo Weapons Research is accepting pre-orders until Sept. 30 for its Radius rail-mounted rangefinder.

The Radius is “capable of ranging out to a mile on a reflective target and attaching to a Picatinny rail in any orientation,” SilencerCo officials maintain.

“When we first decided to create our own rail-mounted rangefinder, we wanted something that would allow us to range out to incredible distances reliably without having to come off of the gun and without breaking the bank – and that’s exactly what we’re delivering to you,” officials say.

Additional features of the Radius include a “user configurable display, continuous ranging for 12 hours with two CR123 batteries, and resistance to even extreme elements.”

The Radius can range out to 1,000 meters for “non-reflective” targets. It displays three Ranges – one primary and two secondary, in case of Interference, SilencerCo officials maintain.

The Radius retails for $999. Pre-order here.

    Can it take the recoil of a .50 caliber though?

    That’s a lot to mount on a rifle IN ADDITION to the tactical scope. Too much, IMHO.

    I think we’ll soon see a military version something like Burris’ Eliminator III laser range finding/ballistic computer scope which ALSO computes for angle!. A lot of hunters really like that scope. Technology marches on.

    Perhaps a Bluetooth enabled LRF scope could take the data from a Bluetooth Kestrel 4500 AB and light up the correct hash mark on a “Christmas tree” reticle, similar to what the Eliminator III has or an H59 reticle. The Kestrel 450 AB already has Bluetooth capability. Now we need the scope to have it as well.

    I mention the Kestrel 4500 AB because it computes ALL the necessary info (once range is added) to give an exact point of aim. This weather station/computer talking to a LRF enable scope would be the best of all worlds.
