I've bought a couple of Redfields recently, but I haven't yet had a chance to use them yet. They do look very clear to me, and I'm sure they're quality products. You just can't beat the warranty they come with.
I have 3 and love them.2 2-7x33 on my 336 in .35 rem and .30-30 with accuplex recticle and a 3-9x50 on a Browning abolt .25-06 with the accurange recticle. Glass is crystal clear. No issues in rain either
Its funny that several people have mentioned the warranty. That was a big decision factor for me. I liked the scope but the glass snob in me kept thinking, "you get what you pay for...". I think they're a great value and again, you can't beat the warranty!
I have a 3-9x 40 Redfield Revolution on my 7 mag and the rifle has a pretty hard thump to it. I have had no problems with mine and I think the Accureticle is great for quick shots. I ordered a 2-7x32 for the Marlin.
It's a great value and, as I mentioned in an earlier post, I spoke with the Leupold rep here in the northeast region and he indicated that it comes off of the VX-I line. Essentially the same scope for less money and backed by Leupold's same lifetime warranty.
I have three of them as well. Two of the 2-7 x 33's and one of the 3-9 x 40's. They are essentially a VXI that uses a less costly finish as well as plastic windage and elevation knobs. Still, a very nice scope for the money and made right here in Oregon by the folks at Leupold. Can't beat that. 8)
i just bought the 3-9x40 accu range retical to put on my savage 93 17 hmr but i think i might put it on my marlin 30-30 or switch out the nikon 2-7 pro staff for this on my marlin 35 rem.i looked at the 4-12 nikon pro staff,burris 3-9,an a bushnell 3-9 bone collector model i think an this redfield look to be the clearest an brightest of the group,the warranty an being made by leupold sealed the deal.
I have 3 of the old one or should I say 3 are still in the family. My youngesat middle son has a 3x9 Accurrac on a 30/06 Rem 740. Stoned a deer at 175 yards with a neck shot the last hunting day of this past season. A 2x7 on a Glenfield that's my youngest sons and that rifle with Leverevolutions is more dangerous to deer than cronic wasting disease. He shot a nickle size 3 shot group dead on the cross in the bull last time at the range and it's taken a lot of game. Last is my new 35 Marlin 336 that I put a 4 star 4x on that has been on my AR. No game yet but I'm sure it will be bloodied as soon as a hog makes himself seen.
I have been wanting to get a Burris 2x7 fullfield but I think I'm going to go with the Redfield instead for the AR. I was quite impressed with the service I got from Leupold when I had to send my pistol scope back. I had a brand new scope in less than a month back at my house and a friendly phone call telling me it was coming.
Bought a new redfield spotting scope ( made in china) from US ebay ( i am in Australia). saved myself about $100, well I thought I did. the spotting scope wouldnt work, in fact I was unable to look through it or get any clarity. had to send it back to the us for ebay refund which cost me $100. so I lost out. spotting scope thumbs down, scope thumbs up.
