    I've got a couple of the 3x9-50 and really like them. Excellent scopes especially for the money. Ed

    If you see one available, you better buy them before they running out again. I have both of the redfield on mine rifle. One on my AK47 and another on m1a. They both working really good and eyes relieve is lots better than other scope. For the money it's the best scope plus life time warrantee :)

    Owned by Leupold and covered by the same fantastic warranty. Have a 3-9X on my AR. Crystal clear and stays zeroed. Worth every penny.

    I got a 3-9x50 on my TC Icon 308, great scope: eye relief, clarity and very bright. I also put a 2-7x32 on my marlin .30-30 and I dare say I like it better than the 50mm, great piece of glass.

    I had ordered the 2-7 and it probably took over 2 months to get it, it was worth it though.

    I have one on my revelation.
    awfully nice glass, seems to be staying zero just fine.
    I can't complain for the $129.00 price

    Now the cheap barska on my mini....... the reticle is starting to go wonky..... it's warped.

    BTW I haven't hear any bad thing about this scope at all... the only down size is once they run out you have to wait couple months for it.

    Here is a Shooting Times article on Redfield. It's a great read.

    Shooting Times; Redfield

    FWIW, I am a new subscriber to Shooting Times and it so the best gun magazine I've read. It has usable information, not just reviews on the newest and best they've been sent by manufacturers.

    They are great scopes and binoculars. We sell them as fast as we get them.

    Local gun shop can't keep the new Redfields on the shelf, and the proprietor (an avid Leupold devotee like myself) expresses some concern that Leupold may have shot themselves in the foot. Same guarantee for 2/3 the price.

    Time will tell if they are similarly durable. I intend to buy one very very soon.

    I have a 2-7 and a 4-12, but both are still in the box. The 2-7 is bound for my .358, and I imagine the 4-12 will end up on a .223 of some sort, probably my Vanguard.
