Anyone own or used a Redfield optic?

Redfield makes a 6x - 30x 56mm scope with a 30mm tube. Has anyone tried one of these? I love the thought of having that kind of range, but I know nothing of the glass quality. I wouldn't expect a Swaro, but something close to a leupold VX3 would be more my needs. Here is the link to their site... web page

LRHWAL,
Do you know anything about these? I haven't gotten any response from anyone else. I don't know, if that a good or bad thing??? Perhaps they are just too new???

Sorry Ryno, I meant I'd like to see the replies too. The prices look quite competitive and Redfield at one point in the past had a good reputation. Sorry - I know nothing about them.

I've posted the same ? on various sites, have yet to get a response. They're made by meade instruments, the 30 mm tube models have 80 moa of elevation and windage, supposedly a new type of friction spring adjustments for better tracking, guess I'll hata buy one and run through the course.

Sorry, I had meant to add that the pics and data I could find seemed to indicate that the scope with 15X at the max was parallax adjusted for 100yrds - which doesn't really get me too excited. The other models have quite a bit bigger magnification at the top end.

I don't think that the old Redfields had that good of reputation. I owned 4 of them during the 70's and everyone of them developed major problems. I still think of Redfield as a POS from my past experience with them.......... [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]
