NEW Vortex Impact 4000 Ballistic Rail-Mounted Laser Rangefinder

Last updated on December 13th, 2023

The long distance shooting community has been asking for a viable alternative to the more expensive Wilcox Raptar and Envision Tech MARS weapon mounted laser range finders.

Enter the Vortex Impact 4000 which brings an onboard compass as well as humidity, barometric pressure and temperature sensors. The unit calculates and displays ballistic solutions without having to come off the weapon.

The unit has a capable laser range finder with a maximum effective range up-to 4000 yards. Weight is always an important part of the equation and the unit weighs in at a reasonable 16oz/453g. The system is mounted on a Picatinny interface and Vortex have also released a ‘diving board’ mount especially for mounting the Impact 4000.

The unit holds ten ballistic profiles and connects to Vortex’s GeoBallistics App and remote control through Bluetooth.

Does the average shooter need a weapon mounted rapid targeting and ranging platform? Probably not, but its nice to have hunting and target shooting when engaging targets at unknown distances. The shooter is able to stay on the rifle to get ballistic data and not break from the rifle to use another device.

The Impact® 4000 takes the guesswork out of long-range shooting with quick, accurate ballistic corrections. Everything you need to generate point-and-shoot target solutions without ever coming off the gun. This advanced, rail-mounted laser rangefinder delivers key range, ballistic, and weather data via the integrated GeoBallistics® solver, on-board Environmental Sensors, and our patented Wind Bearing Capture Mode. Mounts to any picatinny-style rail or rings with a diving board mount.
