New Redfield Scopes?
 
I currently have a 3x9x40 wideview redfield scope on my rifle right now and i love it. its the most accurate scope i have ever shot bt im wanting to try one of thier new models just out of criosty and i was wondering if anybody has tried one of them yet and what you thought about it?

The new generation rifle scopes from Redfield..
 
The easy way to say it is they are now a division of Leopold. They have the same life time warrantee as you get with a Leopold. Are they better? In my opiinion I like the new Redfield models better than the Leopold rifleman series. Would I pick a Redfield over a vari-x 2 NO. Or a vari-x 3 absolutely NO. It makes sense though, the Redfields are 150-200 dollars and are a great buy in that price range. They compare nicely with the Nikons at the same price point. The vari-x 2s and 3s are another 100 to 200 dollars more and you do get something for the extra money you spend. I own several Leopold vx-3s a Zeiss and a Nikon. I do not hesitate recommending the new Redfield scopes.

Not sure of the new Redfields but I have several old ones that are as durable as anything ever made. Hopefully the tradition has continued!:ibtl:

I bought one of the new Redfields for my 270 Rem 700. I used it for about 6 months and spent the extra money and got a Nikon Monarch. It was a better than average scope for the price but I truly feel spend the extra cash on optics you cannot go wrong with a VX-3 or save $100 and buy a Nikon Monarch.
