Redfield Revolution Scope
Redfield is back
I bought this scope and put it on my Browning X Bolt 308 rifle. This is a great scope for the money. I am in the market for another X Bolt in 243 and it will be topped with a Revolution scope as well. I hunt in timber where it gets dark fast and the scope really brings in the light allowing me to hunt longer. The clarity of this scope is excellent and is worthy of the Redfield name. I have only had it for one season so I will refrain from commenting on the long term durability but I did put it through the paces this year and it kept it's zero and held up well. It is great to use at the range as well. I can clearly see the targets, no distortion around the edges even when cranked up on high.
I wish Redfield made scope covers like the Leupolds or the Leupolds would fit the Redfields since Leupold makes Redfield now. That would rate it five stars instead of four and it would be the perfect scope.

Got My Confidence Back
Truly an excellent scope.
Had zeroed my old scope in before deer season and shot a buck opening day. But something happened to the scope to knock it off zero, perhaps in transporting it. I missed three deer, buck and two does. I checked the scope and it was way off zero and wouldn't adjust in. I had lost confidence in the old scope and knew I had one thing to do, which was to replace it.
My friend has a Redfield Revolution scope and is very pleased with it. So, I purchased my Redfield and a week later shot a hog from 50 yrs. My Redfield is dead on. I got my confidence back.

Very Good OPtics
I bought this scope when it first came out and paid $165 for the 3-9x40. I really like this scope. It has excellent eye relief even out to 9x. Very easy to adjust and is much better than the scopes that require a screwdriver to manipulate. My uncle has a Nikon monarch and my Redfield seems brighter. It also, when used at dark, is brighter than looking with the naked eye. I put it on my marlin 99 and used it to snipe chippees and squirrels. I just mounted it on my Remmington 870 with the remmington weaver style base. Looks awesome but I have not zeroed it so I can't say how it will hold up to the 12 ga. recoil. I am confident in American manufacture. Note: Redfiled is made by Leopold.

Very Excellent scope
I normally do not write reviews, but this scope has performed so well that I feel the need to write one. I mounted this scope on a Rem 700 SPS tac in 308. I only bought it because it was on sale and I needed a scope for the new gun to hunt with last season. Thinking... "It is a Redfield and they used to be good scopes." I bought the 3x9x50 with Accu-range thinking that if it didn't work that well I would use it on one of my .22's or something. I used a one piece Weaver type base and tactical rings. After a barrel break in period and a couple hundred hand loads later this scope is still dead on. Just a few days ago I placed 4 rounds in less than 1/2 inch @ 100yds with the gun strait out of the case. That was right where I left it last time I shot the gun. Now my wife and daughter want one for there guns. I like the fact that Redfield supplies a table by which you can reference your balistics to gauge what each mark in the scope means at distance point of impact. I found they were fairly close but I have revised the list and taped it to the butt stock. This scope has complimented an already accurate gun. My Army son has nicknamed the setup... "The Laser Weapon"
