redfield scopes

I have used a Redfield Tracker 3X-9X-40mm on my 760 .308 for about 15 years and have only one complaint...when the sun is low and at your back I get a terrible glare, so bad that I cant see the cross-hairs. I fashioned a binocular eye cup to fit on the scope so I can place my eye on it and that cuts the glare out completely. Be careful with that lil trick if you have it on a mag or something with a good deal of recoil though.

redfield scopes

I bought a red field 2x7 in 1973 used it for about 20yrs then the optics came loose inside, sent it to red field and they fixed it for. For FREE They have a life time guarantee so I don't think you can go wrong with one.

REDFIELD SCOPES

THE NEW REDFIELD SCOPES ARE MADE BY

LEUPOLD SO I WOULD THINK THEY WOULD

BE A GOOD INVESTMENT.  LEUPOLD'S

WARRANTY IS THE BEST THERE IS.

I just bought 2 new 7mm-08's.

I just bought 2 new 7mm-08's. 1 for me & youth size for my girlfriend. Both have the new Redfield Revolution 3x9x50. I put a 7 point down this morning at about 125 yards. Saw him just as clear as if he was right beside me. I even bought the Redfield Rebel binos to glass the fields. Will probably buy her a pair too. My Redfield scope is just as clear as my Leuopld VXII if that's any comparison.

Just my 2 cents, but we've

Just my 2 cents, but we've had a Redfield Tracker 15+ yrs., dropped many a deer and antelope with it on top of a .243 and never had any issues with it - either in rain, snow, or other adverse weather condition.

I still have two old Denver

I still have two old Denver Redfields. In my mind the best scopes ever made. Between those and the new Redfield made by Leupold was a lot of trash. I have a new 2x7 on my 6.5x55 and it is a fine scope. It is covered by the same guarentee of every Leupold and has to pass every test every Leupold passes before shipment. I'll be getting another next year.

Put one of the new Redfields

Put one of the new Redfields (4 to 12 power) on my Rem 700 BDL in 7mm mag this summer.  Sighted it in and put a few rounds through it about every other weekend.  Just got back from slogging through the bog's of Newfoundland for a week.  It still does not need adjusting, so, so far so good in my opinion.

Redfield scope

I used a Redfield widefield four power for many years.  Fact I still have that scope, but I installed it on my wifes 30-30 winchester with a side mount.

But I had it on other rifles I had and it was pretty good scopes.  I replaced it on the deer rifles I have now with Leupold scopes.

I had an older Redfield scope

I had an older Redfield scope and it was a really nice scope, until the gun was dropped pretty hard and then from that day forward just did noit shoot the same.  Up until then is was always real accurate.  The gun was dropped and fell a bit onto a hard surface, so it took a good tumble not just an average drop.  I then switched to Burris, but I would not hesitate to buy a redfield again.
