Safran Vectronix Terrapin X Laser Rangefinder Overview

The Safran Vectronix Terrapin X Rangefinder

The Safran Vectronix Terrapin X Laser Rangefinder

The Terrapin X is the most reliable and powerful commercial laser rangefinder built by Safran Vectronix. It communicates with a Kestrel Meter for quick ballistics calculations.

Safran Vectronix is a trusted supplier of optics equipment for Military and Special Forces. They have developed the Terrapin-X for civilian use with the same high standards that they use for their battlefield proven products. The Terrapin even connects wirelessly with a Kestrel Elite Ballistics Weather Meter to take your game to a whole new level!

Safran Vectronix’s close to 30 years of experience in designing and manufacturing laser rangefinders for both civil and military applications seems to have all culminated into their newest product, the Terrapin X. The release of the Terrapin X has reset industry standards when it comes to compact, affordable, and durable laser rangefinders.

Range Finding

The Terrapin X has maximum range finding capabilities of 3280 yards, which roughly works out to 1.86 miles! The accuracy factor of the Terrapin X is only ± 5 meters past 2000 meters (5.46 yd. at 2187 yd.); this made possible by its low beam divergence of 1.25 x .05 mrad. When you combine the rangefinder’s accuracy with the built in slope, equivalent horizontal range, and azimuth measurements; you can feel secure in taking that perfect shot even at extreme distances and uneven terrains. The Terrapin X displays units in meters or yards based on your preference. The monoscope design paired with the device’s Scan mode allows you quickly identify, target, then measure your distance from the target, with accurate measurements displayed in less than one half of a second.


Unlike many of its competitors in the compact rangefinder market, the Terrapin X has been designed to be incredible rugged and durable. The entire outer shell of the rangefinder is a thick grippy shock resistant rubber that will ensure that small drops and water won’t affect the functionality of the Terrapin X. The design of the rangefinder ensures extra protection for the laser, battery, and objective lens by deeply recessing the components into the body of the Terrapin X. The housing of the Terrapin X is made from Ryton®, a material designed specifically to rigidly hold electronic components as well as protect them from extreme temperatures and corrosive materials. When it comes to durability, Safran Victronix has truly set the standard with the Terrapin X.


The Terrapin X was designed to be an integral part of your entire shooting system and has built-in technology and features that allow it to be compatible with your equipment. The Terrapin X features Bluetooth connectivity allowing you to connect to a dedicated robust mobile app (iOS and Android) that provides you with control over the Terrapin X as well as additional information like the distance between objects or the height of objects. The Terrapin will also wirelessly connect to Kestrel devices with industry leading Applied Ballistics calculators (the Kestrel 5700 Elite Weather Meter, Kestrel 5700 Ballistics Weather Meter with LiNK, and Ruger Kestrel 5700 Ballistics Weather Meter with LiNK), giving you the same ballistics and environmental information trusted by the world’s most elite snipers.

The Terrapin X was developed by Safran Vectronix in Switzerland to the same high standards as all our battlefield proven range finders. The goal was clear from the beginning: to offer the serious long range shooter and long range hunter the best compact laser range finder on the market at a retail price below 2,000 USD. In order to achieve this Safran teamed up with Leica Sports Optics, benefiting from Leica’s manufacturing capabilities and from the use of selected common standard components without compromising the DNA of Safran Vectronix in any way. Distinctive differences in vital hardware components and in the implemented software culminate in the most reliable and longest ranging eye safe laser range finder commercially available: the Safran Vectronix Terrapin X.
