Redfield Scopes.

Has there been any problems with the Redfield Scopes?
I was wondering about quality, I know that Leupold is building them and all the rest
of the news, what I need is proof of there quality.
The Warranty means nothing if I am sending it in for repairs every season.

Re: Redfield Scopes.

I have not heard of any problems or of anyone having a problem with the Redfields since they were introduced. Are you having an issue and if so what is it?

Re: Redfield Scopes.

I looked at one today it was a redfield "revolution" 4x12x40mm with the accu range reticle. The reticle I liked and the overall looks of the scope but when I turned the power from 6 to 12 the clarity just vanished, everything got hazy and theres no focus or parallax adjustment on it. I asked the salesman about it and he said they are set for 100yds and beyond, on a varmint rifle you never know what the yardage is going to be or any hunting situation for that matter, so I passed on it. I guess if you just wanted to shoot paper it would be a deal.

Re: Redfield Scopes.

Heck, even some of he $1000 Leupolds have a fixed objective set at 100 yards. You can correct the fuzzy by changing the focus. I compared the Redfields to some of the Nikons and found even the $150 Redfield smoked the Nikon Monarch for clearity, and light transmission. The eye relief is unreal on the Redfield, I've neven seen another scope that good. You get the thing 5" from your eye and everything is clear wall to wall. No moving around looking for a sweet spot. I thought it was even better than the Leupold VXII they had on display. I'm thinking about ordering a couple 4x12's to put on my varmit and preditor guns. I was totally impressed with the quality of the scope.

Re: Redfield Scopes.

Far as I know they are build by the same employees, on the same equipment, as the Leupold cousins.

Should be just as sturdy. The finish isn't as high of polish, the lens coatings aren't top shelf, and nitrogen filled vs argon. You're not going to get the clarity of the Leupolds. You do get the sturdy, though.

Re: Redfield Scopes.

I own a 4-12x40 Acurange reticle on my 30-06. It has worked ok, but has not had alot of use. Personally I would compare it to a Bushnell Elite 3200.

As far as the clarity, if you play with the focus adjustment, you can fix that.

Mine is clear on 12x not like my monarch mind you, but for the price, it is alot of scope.

HAPPY SHOOTING
