Hey guys, So while digging around for my bow stabilizer I found a long forgotten Redfield scope. Only markings are on the one side embossed is 5 stars over It has an exposed turn style elevation turret and the windage adjustment has a cap that needs to be removed for adjustment. But the coolest thing about this scope is the accu range thingy.

Hanco when you say u have never heard of a Denver made classic, does that mean you have never heard of them before at all,or were they made in Japan and then put in a box with the Denver address. I had never seen a redfield classic before this one, I had it on my weatherby for years and never had a problem with it.
Buyers beware of counterfeit Leupold rifle scopes

Let me begin this article with a notice: Redfield Widefield scopes manufactured in Colorado are no longer warranted by anyone. The Company has been bought and sold several times since these scopes were manufactured and no guarantee applies today. If you have a Widefield with a problem, dispose of it; it is time for a new Redfield scope made by Leupold. Redfield was an American sight and riflescope company, nearly years old, which formerly made all of their scopes in-house in Colorado.
Redfield also devised the excellent dovetail mount and ring system later copied by both Leupold and Burris. In the early ‘s, when I was working in a retail store selling guns and sporting goods, Redfield was our top riflescope brand. Through the 70’s and 80’s Redfield’s market position was increasing impacted by their competitors, especially Leupold, in the deluxe scope market, and by the enormous increase in cheap foreign competition.
By the ‘s Redfield had fallen on hard times, and their service and customer relations, traditionally very good, suffered. Sometime in the middle of that decade the company was acquired by Blount, which at that time owned Weaver and Simmons. Blount discontinued the manufacture of Redfield scopes, but retained their line of mounts. Meade never produced any Redfield scopes, beyond prototypes. The Redfield Widefield line, the subject of this article, was introduced many years ago, when Redfield was still in its glory years.
These scopes were distinguished by their oval ocular and objective lenses wider than they are tall. I think that this design, touted by Redfield as offering increased horizontal field of view, met a lot of resistance from shooters.

New Posts. Members Profile. Post Reply. I traded a firearm for a Winchester Model I can’t even find a serial number on it, looks fake to me to be honest. Not sure why any manufacture would not at least put a couple markings to keep track of their product base.
With no visible serial number, there’s no tracing manufacture date. scope today should have clarity and sharpness that blow the old redfield.

Messages posted to thread:. From: letrplay. Where I live out West may need a spotting scope to plan a stalk to bow range. I know where to get this ‘s scope. Does anyone have experience with it? Were they fog and waterproof? Were they quality? From: JustSomeDude. This isn’t what you asked but I’ve had better luck with high power binocs and using a Walking stick or my bow to steady my hand if needed.
I’m only being negative about it because I took a Spotting scope hunting once Coyote hunt with Rifle and I ended up ditching it From: Peleg. Not sure on the Regal IV but I used a Redfield Fifteen-Sixty for many years of competitive shooting, they were very high quality optics. Still have it and it survived a few rain storms as well as overnight stays on the shooting line without failure.
As far as water proof make a neoprene cover for them and let them air out after getting wet, as in a sunny spot.

Do not deal with someone who is wiling to break federal law by shipping to anyone but an FFL. You can’t trust a cheater.
