    Bushnell makes a pretty good "cheap" one.

      Good quality and inexpensive are mutually exclusive terms in rangefinders. The best 'cheap' ones I have seen are the Nikon 400's that were less than $200. I have a Nikon Monarch 800 that does very well. My son and buddy have the low-end cheap Bushnell's and they aren't worth hauling home from the store. The cheapo's will perform at about half the advertised range.

            Go to SWFA.com and check out the "samples list".
            Lots of good prices on rangefinders and other optics.

              I like my Nikon, it was in the 200 buck range. Depends on what you mean by "inexpensive".

                  Save your money until you can afford a decent one. The Nikon 800 is about as inexpensive as you want to get.

                          Jeff: Buy a Nikon and you will be happy. Not as cheap as the Bushnell but much better. I use my Nikon especialy in the Rockis, providing I have the time to range the animal. When you buy the Rangefinder get a set of harness to hold it close to you boddy. I use all Nilon glass, in my opinion it can;tbe beat. Good hunting.

                            I've had nothing but good luck with the Nikon 440. It cost, if my memory is any good at all, $199.00. I recommend this product. Probably the newer models are even better.

                              It is all relative my brethren. Inexpensive equals (maybe) good quality, while (very) expensive equals excellent quality.
                              I have found that if I buy less expensive at first, I usually end up upgrading to more expensive equipment.
                              I have learned over the years just to wait a while longer, and continue to save until I can get the piece of equipment that has top shelf quality and give the best service and a lifetime of hunting.
                              I have found that I do not have to spend the kind of money it takes to buy German optics, when I can get ones that come extremely close, if not equal. Such as the top end Leupold, Nikon and a few others.
                              My advice is research carefully and then save your hard earned money and get something that you will satisfied with. Avoid buying something you will later want to get rid of for better quality.
