I bought the factory refurbished version and I love it with my X-sight Pro 5x -20x. one push of the button, range is displayed and ballistics are corrected, all you have to do is shoot.
There are some scratches on it, but a sharpy took care of that and I saved some $$$. Thus far I have only used it in the indoor range, so I can't comment on how it works in the field or at longer ranges, but my system works sooooo well on my suppressed Savage TRR-SR accurized 22lr that I got bored at the range and just put string on the holder and sent it down to 25 yards.

ABL1000 & 4k pro scope review
ABL1000 arrived in like new condition. Directions were not clear. No adapter ring is required to install to a 4k pro and you press the down button on the scope to get the laser to range. I only confirmed accuracy out to 266yds so far, but it's correct at every distance checked (starting at 19yds). When ranging at night, I can see a blinking spot in the reticle (presume this is the laser pinging the target)... which is more helpful than the bracketed box.
The ABL sure beats pressing buttons to change range ...1 yard at a time (?!)... especially when there are multiple targets at various distances. If you have a 4k pro, this upgrade is worth the money. The ABL should come with the 4k pro scope as standard or as a package.

ATN ABL 1000
I purchased a refurbished unit and it is fine. Haven't mounted and paired it yet but it should work great. Based on this experience I have no reservation about buying a pre-owned unit from ATN in the future.
Pros: Fantastic concept, High Quality. Mine is a refurbished unit – Cannot see a difference between it and a factory new model.
Cons: (1) 2 ½ inch sight height, depending on if close-up shots (20 -> 50 yards) are auto corrected using the range finder (ABL laser). (2) Weight. Not a problem if you are a he-man. At 77 Yrs. old and hunting in the mountains probably would not buy. Required me to buy a lighter weight Rifle, a 6 ½ lb. 6.5 Creedmoor. (3) Very picky on 64 gig µSD card. Out of three different brands only one worked. (4) I would recommend changing the red laser (ABL1000) to a green laser as at the recommended 50 yards for alignment the red laser is almost impossible to see. To do the alignment You need to do it in “LOW” light conditions (ie <7AM), Mark the target, then return under better lighting conditions, ie 7AM -> 8 AM and do the alignment – Maybe setting night vison on you can do it all prior to 7AM.
Side comment: You may need a new case, I had to cut a square hole to accommodate the ABL range finder. Will probably build my own case to fit this rifle and a 2nd scoped rifle. Need answers to a couple of question not found in your FAQ (Note on your FAQ you state size of as 4-> 32 gigs µSD card, but manual goes up to 64 gig µSD card). A question I have, can the ABL laser be mounted horizontally, or must it be mounted vertically? A 2nd Question is on photo/video: How do I get the crosshairs to show up? PS on one shot zeroing, I’ve used that method with optical scopes for a number of years.
ATN has been great to work with, had a battery compartment issue, spent 5min with a rep and they sent a new unit to me. Thoroughly read the directions and the whole set up, pairing, and zeroing was seamlessly smooth👍
Easy to set up. When your ready to use it you turn it on and it automatically links up to the scope and you are ready to go. At night in an open field it’s near impossible to judge distances. I got tired of guessing and bought the ABL. Well worth it. Found it very easy to use this to get distances on multiple targets very quickly.
