Sell a few of those fine hand made knives and buy a Redfield. They make a really nice scope for under $200.

Well I have probably 4-5 of the true quality Redfields from the 70's. You couldn't beat them for price/quality. I've never had a failure on a Redfield scope. I believe Leupold now makes the Redfield line.

Yes, Leupold does make them now, and they are USA made (Beaverton Oregon). I have two of them.

Default Winchester Model 70 .243

I bought a Model 70 in .243 in 1990.It was made in 1958 according to the serial number.I was at least the third owner.I use 100 grain remington core-lokts and handloaded 100 grain spitzers from a friend.I love it.I've taken at least 40 deer with it.The longest kill was at 270 yards uphill with a high hold on the shoulder.Good luck with yours.
