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!

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.
