    Chronograph

    Steinert Superchrono

    Bought this from a forum member five months ago but have since upgraded to a LabRadar.

    In excellent working condition with new batteries.

    One battery terminal spring has some rust on it, however I applied rust kill and some emery paper and it gives no problems.

    Very accurate and gives almost identical velocity readings to the LabRadar. You need to line the target through the sights on the unit in line with and level with your rifle barrel and good to go. Isn't affected by light and doesn't alter the point of impact of the rifle.

    $225 plus postage.

    Assume it is threaded for a tripod mount?
    How finicky is it in regards to getting straight and level, to get accurate readings.

    Has tripod mount. Not too difficult to align. Once you've done it a few times it's pretty easy. A small level or level app on your cell phone helps.

    Just out of curiosity - what's this like compared to the labradar in terms of ease of use and quality?

    The SC is basically a straight out speed recorder and that's it. It does store your shots which you can review direct from the unit at home. A good unit for the straight out hunter/target shooter who just wants to check the velocity of their ammo.

    Haven't had the LR long enough to get to know all it can do. There's plenty of reviews of it's capabilities online.

    They're both quality units. The SC is a little harder to set up until you get used to it and is placed 10' in front of muzzle so there is always the possibility you might shoot it if you're careless.
