    My choice and why.  Nikon  Aculon  6×20  small, light, very clear glass, accurate  with in 1 yard at a good price point. I went to several sport stores at one the fellow really  seemed very knowledgeable and showed me several and different brands.  On the lower priced ones he did recommend the Nikon, my google research list had a Bushnell  little less money he stated he found they  have not been as reliable as the old days. The finder comes with a very nice belt case.

    It sure seems to be reviewed well on Amazon.  The price point is on par with the Bushnell 450, but it looks to be a heck of a lot more compact.

    +1 Aculon
    I’ve been using one for a year now with no problems, and it is one of the smallest units if not the smallest ever made.
    When I first got it I tested it (tape measured distance to check) and was pretty impressed with the results.

    The Nikon series of range finders all seem to be good units with some available at very reasonable prices. I absolutely love the Prostaff 3. It is a 6×21, waterproof unit. Very clear glass and simple to use. I actually use it as my hunting monocular. If you keep an eye out (no pun intended) on the auction sites you can pick one up for around $125.

    I’ve been using a Bushnell with ARC. It gives you both the actual yardage as well as an adjusted yardage based on the angle. Although designed for bow hunters, it seems to work well for airguns. It’s great when hunting squirrels around here, we have really tall trees and some dense woods which makes for some pretty steep shots.
