Bushnell has announced the introduction of the newest addition to its laser rangefinder lineup—the Prime 1800. Packed with added features such as the company’s all-new ActivSync display system that fluidly morphs from black to red readouts based on lighting conditions, the Prime 1800 builds on the success of Bushnell’s 25-year legacy of laser rangefinder development.

With its all-glass, fully multi-coated optical path and extra-large laser aperture window, the Prime 1800 boasts double the light transmission over other competitive models. It has been specifically designed for all day viewing capability, made possible by the aforementioned ActivSync display feature which fluidly morphs automatically from black in the daylight to red in low-light conditions so users can always see their readings, whether at sunrise, midday or dusk. The display can even show red and black simultaneously if the environment requires it.

The Prime 1800 offers effective ranging capabilities out to 1,800-yard on reflective targets and can reliably range trees out to 1,000 yards or deer out to 700 yards with +/- 1-yard accuracy. It comes equipped with Scan mode for fast ranging, as well as near/far target modes to allow users to home in on targets while ignoring objects in the foreground and background. The rangefinder also comes equipped with ARC (Angle Range Compensation) technology for angle readings in the field.

It includes a built-in tripod mount and lanyard holes, giving users multiple setup options to keep the rangefinder secure and stable. A threaded metal battery door can be found on the bottom of the rangefinder and a CR2 battery is included, so the rangefinder is ready to use out of the box.

Backed by Bushnell’s 5-year Lifetime Ironclad warranty, the Prime 1800 has an MSRP of $249.99. For more information, visit bushnell.com.
