Not the kind of rangefinder you think though. I have been a fan of Leica rangefinder cameras and used them for decades. Last purchase was the Leica M (typ 240) and Leica M Monochrom some ten years ago.

When Leica relased M11 a year or so ago and I was intrigued, but wanted to wait for a couple of firmware updates. Two weeks ago I pulled the trigger.

Below is the picture of the tribe. M6 (film), M8, Monochrom, and M (typ 240). In the front is the new M11 with a 35mm (f2) lens mounted. Other lenses are 135 (f4), 50 (f1.4), 90 (f2). One good thing about Leica is that lenses never go obsolete, and they are very high quality. Looking forward to using the M11 this month in Europe.

I'll give it to you, you always go first class! Congrats on a heck of a setup!

Hi gprippers.
Wanted to discuss the Sako with you. Neil 847.668.9020. Would you consider $2,000 for the Sako. Im not seeing them going for anything higher than that on market. Whats your thoughts? Thanks again.

Looking for shipping advice. I will be hunting in Limpopo in March, and was wanting to know a general idea of shipping costs to return my mounts to the US when completed. Air or sea? Only plains game hunting.

Good morning 7MAG. I have a NEW, never mounted, Leupold M8-4X Extended Eye Relief scope that I will sell you for $325 shipped to you. I was a Leupold rep for 12 years and this was always our preferred mounting for a lever gun, scout rifle style.
