An American original returns, with a sharper focus! No-nonsense optics for everyone. John C. Redfield’s vision for his company, developed more than 100 years ago, is as valid today as it was then. After nearly a century of making top-notch optical equipment available to hunters at affordable prices, however, the company closed its doors in 1998. Sadly, the hunting industry had lost one of its legends. Fast-forward to 2008. Leupold & Stevens, Inc., the U.S.-based maker of Leupold® optics, purchased Redfield, revived the brand, and prepared to once again make great optics in keeping with the traditions of the name. Redfield products today are made for real hunters—those who scout, set up blinds, and wake long before dawn. Whether you’re after a trophy buck or a full freezer, Redfield optics will get the job done, season after season, and without breaking the bank.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Gemsbolio Very Good Scope
I own one of these Redfield Revolution 2-7x33 scopes with a 4-plex recticle. I have had it for about 2 years and it is the best scope that I have ever used. It is very clear, even in low light. The adjustments are accurate, and it is a very good looking scope.
I like the thumb adjustment knobs, which are very handy compared to the coin knobs that I have used in the past.
Some reviewers have noted that the clicks made during adjustment feel mushy and it is easy to lose count of how many clicks you have made. I noticed that sometimes the first click can throw you off the first time you adjust it, but I haven't found this to be a major inconvenience.
I am very pleased with my purchase and would definitely buy other products from Redfield.

Mounted the 3-9x52mm on my .308. This scope looks awesome and was easy to sight in. In the low light, you have to see how well it grabs the light! I am satisfied with my purchase.

Great value for the money. Very crisp optics with great low light performance. I used a 3-9x50 last fall on my .300 WSM and popped a nice bull lek at 350 yards utilizing the accurange reticle. I actually dropped my rifle on some rocks the day before and If I would have been using a lesser scope I don't think it would have held zero like this one did. I knew Leupold was a great product, and now know that Redfield is pretty good also. Go USA!

Rated 3 out of 5 by spoiled its okay but not the best
Not as clear as my bushnell doa , or my Nikon Monarch , or my Leupold vx-3 , The reason i purchased this scope is because it was on sale , now i am having buyers remorse . Do yourself a favor & spend the extra money and get yourself a Leupold you will be glad you did . I like to purchase products that are made in the USA another reason i got the Redfield , but just like most everything else in the good old USA i am disapointed with it .

Haven't tried the redfield but as for the Nikon, it is very good in low light. As I said earlier this year, I have taken all my Scopes from other manufacturers of my hunting and target rifles and pistols and replaced them with Nikon. and "no" I do not work for or have anything to do with Nikon. I just got tired of Scopes breaking and fogging up and noticed my Nikon were basicly maintenance free, I went to what i call problem free products, because I hate thing that fail or fall apart in the field
I have one on a S&W 686, 357, I know the recoil is greater on the gun you have, but I have fired over 400 rds with this scope and it has never failed. best I can tell you is, Nikon has a lifetime warr. and they stand behind their stuff. wish i had more data with heaver rounds but, their (Nikon) scopes stand up well on my 50 cal. barret, and my rem.700, 300 ultra mag. and they are the same scopes I use on my smaller cal hunting rifles.
I own this scope in 2-7x33, and it has very generous eye relief. It isn't a scope that is specifically manufactured for a muzzleloader, but it should function properly, and I am pretty sure that it would still be clear if it was mounted further ahead to account for the recoil of a muzzleloader.
It is always best to zero it at 100 yards and then adjust your crosshair if you need to shoot at a further distance. Read the ballistics on the .308 and see how it typically shoots at 200 yards (bullet drop) and adjust accordingly.
