Re: Old Redfield vs New Optics
He is full of... you know....beans !
You are making an excellent choice on the new scope, actually way better than you need, but I love Leupolds, and they are bulletproof. The old Redfields optical quality is poor in comparison to the new ones, but back then they were top shelf. The reality is, most Pa deer rifles see the light of day for a day or two each year. That type of hunter is correct in not spending $500 plus on a scope. Buy the best scope you can afford and be happy. The cheap scopes do work fine in good warm weather, but add a below zero temp, some sleet or snow, heavy rain, etc. and you quickly find out what $39 buys you, a frozen fogged up mess !
