Re: Leupold Redfield Revolution Scope Review
I own the Redfield 2-7x32 scope, and it is far from my best scope. The low end Burris scopes clearly have better optics. I have owned most of the Timberline series of scopes, and wouldn't trade any of them for a new Redfield.
At 2X, the Redfield isn't bad, but at 4X you will have a light leak all around the image field edge, it mostly goes away at 7X. Not a dealbreaker, considering I paid $130 for the scope. I got what I paid for, which isn't too awfully much. It sits on a Ruger 10/22 for fun plinking purposes.
None of my Weaver Classic V or Burris Signature scope will be pulled off a hunting rifle to mount a Redfield scope. Of course, I paid much more for those scopes, and got what I paid for.
Better to buy the Redfield that to buy some piece of crap from China, however. Of course, the Redfield is NOT totally made in the USA but only assembled and tested here. You are going to find it stuffed full of Chinese manufactured glass at that price, and the glass acts like Chinese glass as well.
