I just got one complete with manual and original box. It was not working, so I disassembled it and repaired the internal mechanism and recalibrated it for distance and vertical image coincidence.

Disassembly is easy (two screws at front and rear) and the "repair" for mine was to lubricate two pads that the mechanism rests on that were "sticky." I removed the mechanism, but that is not required -- just manual manipulation of the distancing arm should be sufficient to expose the lubrication points. Do not use 3-in-One or similar oil -- that thickens with time. Lacking the "proper" oil type, I would use a small drop of motor oil.

Calibration is simple -- use an object with a known distance that is about half the range of your unit. Adjust the "focus" knob to make the two images coincide (don't worry about vertical coincidence yet). Hold the thinner of the two distance adjuster knobs and turn the thicker one until the tape displaying the distance reads the actual distance to the known object. I would then adjust the image coincidence vertically by turning the screw on the bottom of the unit on the right (near the loop for a lanyard). It will be stiff! Turn it about a quarter of a turn and recheck vertical image coincidence -- if worse, turn it back the other direction a half-turn. Repeat with small turn increments until the images coincide vertically. Once that is done, recheck the distance calibration.

SOURCE: basic operation of the 50/2 mini rangefinder

look through view finder and see the two images and turn wheel til it becomes one and then look at wheel to see the distance. this is a pretty accurate piece of equipment. classic range finder and will be worth some money someday if in good shape.

I compete in 3d archery so I bought a new rangefinder 2 days ago and it reads 19.2 yards at exactly 20 yards is there a way to adjust it to read properly?


Page 5 of the manual states: RANGING ACCURACY The ranging accuracy of the Scoutâ„¢1000 is plus or minus one yard / meter under most circumstances. The maximum range of the instrument depends on the reflectivity of the target. The maximum distance for most objects is 650 yards / 594 meters while for highly reflective objects the maximum is 1000 yards / 914 meters. Note: You will get both longer and shorter maximum distances depending on the reflective properties of the particular target and the environmental conditions at the time the distance of an object is being measured. The color, surface finish, size and shape of the target all affect reflectivity and range. The brighter the color, the longer the range. White is highly reflective, for example, and allows longer ranges than the color black, which is the least reflective color. A shiny finish provides more range than a dull one. A small target is more difficult to range than a larger target. The angle to the target also has an effect. Shooting to a target at a 90 degree angle (where the target surface is perpendicular to the flight path of the emitted energy pulses) provides good range while a steep angle on the other hand, provides limited ranging. In addition, lighting conditions (e.g. the amount of sunlight) will affect the ranging capabilities of the unit. The less light (e.g. overcast skies) the farther the unit's maximum range will be. Conversely, very sunny days will decrease the unit's maximum range.

The difference you are experiencing (20-19.2=.8 yards) is within the device ranging accuracy of 1 yard, and is in fact an error of only 4%. That is pretty accurate

Good luck with your device.

I can't get it to bow or rifle mode


Look on the back of the rangefinder......Its a very small strip that has the model number, serial number, and date of manufacture. If it sez.....20-1932 you have a "bow and rifle" rangefinder.....!!!! If it doesn't have model number 201932. You don't have that capability. Read your manual, check the unit for the model type.
Part 2: Try holding down the "FIRE BUTTON" for more than 5 seconds....see if the the "setup" comes across the display screen........(read the manual) The unit should have came with a ballistic disk. If you don't have one call Bushnell and get one. (800.423.3537) It has a lot of good info on it.

Good Luck to you David!!!

Do not know how to operate


First, be sure and focus the eyepiece on what you desire to measure distance to. Begin the measurement with the range dial set to minimum. Slowly tury the dial until the grey-blue image and the yellow image overlap each other. Read the measurement. If you suspect it is in error, you can calibrate the 400 or 1000 or 1200 by turning the screw slot within the range dial using an object you know the distance to. If the two images are off in the vertical direction, there's a screw below the range finder to adjust that. Turn it very little. Regarding the model 610, mostly the same except to calibrate it, merely spread the adjustment knob apart (spring loaded) and turn the part of it nearest your eyes so the yardage matches the distance.
