    Rated 4.7 out of 5★ by 77reviewers.
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by F1 Chrony - A great value This is a must have for any serious handloader/reloader. It works as advertised. I tested factory ammunition of "known" muzzle velocities and the Chrony matched those expectations very closely, so I believe it is accurate. There is sufficient but limited functionality without the remote control switch or the printer. These two items help you tap into the advanced features that give statistics for each string of shots. The remote switch can be manufactured for under 10 bucks or you can buy one online for about $15. All I needed from my Chrony was the shot velocities which I recorded by hand and then keyed into a spreadsheet to give statistics, power factor, muzzle energy, etc. The WalMart price beat everyone else by a significant margin and the Site-to-Store shipping option (at no additional cost) worked perfectly (except my package arrived several days SOONER than promised). I would recommend both the Chrony and Walmart Online. 10/05/2010
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by good product Easy setup, reliable. Had two 9mm rounds hit the diffuser support rods and the unit still works well. The diffuser isn't necessary outdoors as far as I can tell, however putting pieces of masking tape at the recommended 4-6" above the sensors does give an aiming point.It worked well with .22, .380. 9mm and 7mm remmington magnum. A piece of 1/4" steel plate isn't a bad idea to protect the front of the unit from errant shots as there should be at least 10' from the shooter to the unit for pistols and 20' for overbore rifles. 04/02/2009
    Rated 4 out of 5★ by Great product good price Great product for a good price, only trouble is finding a Wal-Mart that still handles guns and shooting supplies. 01/10/2010
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by works great Very easy to set up and use. Appears to give accurate results (consistent with system at a pro shop). diffusers may be a little flimsy, but it does not really matter. Does exactly what I wanted it to do. 12/26/2009
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by F1 Chrony - checking your reloads The Chrony F1 is a very good chronograph for shooting at a good price. Yes there are better ones out there but I am pleased with this unit. When I setup the unit I was at least 10 feet from the barrel so that you will not get errors because of the muzzle blast. It gave me readings on 98% of my shots, meaning I only had 2 error codes (over 100 shots through the Chrony). I shot 22LR, 375 Win, 308 Win and 338 Win mag through the unit. When getting this unit, I would recommend getting a tripod and a remote (additional cost of $20 to $25). If you can get the F1 and remote together would be the best, if unable to get the comb then you can buy or make a remote. I did not have a remote button with me to check all the functions but it worked very well. I reload cartridges and needed to see how close they were. On my 338 Win Mag I only had a difference of 75 feet per second difference on a total of 10 shot on one string.For the remote I got this information from other people on the web: You will need to buy or make a push button device to access the computer in the unit. You can get the remote control button through the chrony website. The remote allow you to "access" all the cool features like Hi, Lo, Average Dev, Standard Dev, extreme spread, etc. To build a remote you will need a 3 pole stereo 1/8 headphone jack plug. Even though only 2 connections are used a 2 pole jack WILL NOT work!!! Trust me on this as I had to go back and exchange parts. On a 1/8 inch stereo headphone jack there are three poles - the tip, the middle, and the "base". Even though it is a two pole connection, the Chrony uses the middle and base connections on the plug. All you need to do is solder a length of speaker wire to the above mentioned poles of the plug and put a momentary contact switch at the other end! Please note that the "tip" connection on the jack's plug is NOT used. I'm hoping that sharing this information will help you. Have fun shooting.. 09/09/2012
    Rated 4 out of 5★ by Excellent product The F1 Chrono works as advertised - we have tested everything from Nerf darts to paintball guns to pellet rifles to real rifles, and the F1 has rarely failed to give a reading. I took away a star because of the sun filter - the plastic parts that connect the wire guides for use in direct sunlight. They are difficult to connect, and routinely fly apart with any movement of the F1. Once we put those away, the F1 worked very well - even in direct sunlight. To try to confirm accuracy, paintball guns were measured at the local field, and matched our readings, and ballistics charts confirmed our findings for .17Mach2 and .270Win - excellent product and price. 06/21/2009
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Does the job! The Chrony F1 is the centerpiece of an expandable system, and it answers my decades old desire to obtain real data on ballistic speeds rather than trusting entirely on published data as an estimate, when I could find it. The F1 can be used both with arrows and bullets, and it is rated to measure speeds from 32-7,000 fps.The chronograph optically detects the passing missile. It seems consistent as long as there is good diffused light above the missile (using the included translucent strips or an overcast sky). If lighting is weak or uneven, the device may err, as is expected in unsuitable conditions. Tilting the F1 somewhat toward the sun, if using it outside, can solve uneven lighting if any problem arises.This product has worked well for me, with no frustration and few failures to measure. Accuracy is apparent in that table data usually agrees fairly well with measured values. The price for the F1 was reasonable, the package is nicely compact, and use is as easy as opening, setting on a tripod between shooting station and target, attaching diffusers, turning it on, shooting, and recording measurements. With only the addition of a 9v battery and a tripod, it is ready to go in outdoor daylight. 01/22/2011
    Rated 4 out of 5★ by Good Deal for the Price Pros:- Price- Folds to small size box- Simple and effective operation.Cons:- The metal frame and plastic diffusers break down into smaller pieces for storage in the folded unit. Horrible design. When you get the unit and diffusers assembled, they like to spontaneously explode into seven different sub-parts. Solution: Go to home depot and get some aluminum road for $2.50. Cut into 18" solid pieces. Hot glue the diffuser together. It then works great. 11/07/2011
