M830r LRF 8x30, Laser Rangefinder is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from M830r LRF 8x30 Binoculars Laser Range Finder Steiner finally filled the gap by producing a binoculars / range finder combo in compact size. Something others have failed to do. Based on my first test, its flawless. I got laser reading approaching a mile from non-reflective targets. Depth of view and contrast is excellent, better than I expected from 30 mm lenses. Ranging reticle is probably etched into the right lens and its sharp. The only minor thing is, to keep ranging reticle perfectly perpendicular you have to keep the lens spread at certain position. And if your eyes are spread closer together, like mine, than you are forced to squeeze both sides closer together to get your focus, but that makes reticle non-perpendicular. Not a bit deal really. In such case I compensate by tilting the set a little to keep reticle perpendicular. Otherwise, this is a great quality product. If you are looking for a compact binoculars that has it all, this is it. A+++

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Outstanding glass I bought these binoculars about 2 years ago and the glass and clarity is excellent. The range finder function is not nearly as good as I would have expected for the price. The eye cover on the front do not seal and again not what I would have expected. I use them a lot and over all ok binoculars with exceptional glass. Regards Rick

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome range finders I used these at the Sniper's Hide Cup in 2015. We had a lot of fog one morning and I was shooting the stage from 1150 to 1350 yards. My Terrapin would not range the targets, but my Steiner 8X30 LRF did.

Is bluetooth capability included out of the box on this model (2680), or do you have to purchase the bluetooth adapter to pair with a Kestrel?

Asked by: jvp90
The Bluetooth capability is only available with the 2681. From there you will need the adapter piece as well. https://www.steiner-optics.com/binoculars/m830r-lrf-1535nm https://www.steiner-optics.com/accessories/bluetooth-adaptor

Hello. Does this product come with the "Tripod & Picatinny Mount" ? If it doesn't, how can I order it separately? I need to give our Distributor the part number. Thank you.

Asked by: Giovanni 2
The LRF binoculars have a threaded hole for a 1/4" tripod stud on the objective end of the hinge. There is no Picatinny mount.

I had an old pair from 2017 that were defective and just received a new pair with serial number 2020164817 (excellent customer service btw!!!). Would these pair with a kestrel via the link device or is that only the M830lrf with the stronger laser?

Asked by: Bovice556
Unfortunately that is only the M830LRF 1535nm that can pair to the Kestrel.

Hello: Can this be connected with Steiner IFS system to show the range on the IFS screen inside the scope? Do I need the Steiner Bluetooth adapter as well? Also can this be connected with a Kestrel? I just bought a Steiner IFS Msr2 model. Thanks.

Asked by: Enam
No it does not connect with a Kestrel. It does not connect to the scope. You get the range from the binos and then you dial the turret until it shows the same distance.

I have Steiner M830r LRF binos. The serial number is 1074105120, my dad bought them for me as a gift in 2019. Are they able to speak with a kestrel using the attachment? 

Asked by: Ldiggle
Those unfortunately can not.

I understand the m830r has a inclinometer (right?). Q1: Does it display the Angle Modified Range as well as the true (direct line) range? Q2: What can we expect with ranging on non-reflective surfaces? Q3: What is the beam divergence and frequency?

Asked by: LRPS
1. The M830r LRF *does not* have an inclinometer 2.,3. Specifications are not readily available for beam divergence, or frequency, but nonreflective targets should be able to be ranged at a minimum of 1,000y
