My dad has an old redfield, nice scope for the time, but not so great compared to modern optics. Some of the newer cheap scopes look better than some of the old expensive ones from what I have seen.

Great scope....

I picked up a redfield 5 star 2-7 x 40. got it from a guy who tried to sell me a oldertasco or bushnell for 20-30 bucks, I said I wanted better then he pulled out the redfield still in the original box. Price on the box was 395.95 He said he had to get $100.00 for it so I paid quickly and left. I have it on my BLR 7mm rem. mag. And it does great . I have no idea how old it is but it looks new.

Your lucky day ! Now that I am older, that 2-7 x40 of yours "looks" very good to me. My brother has a 2 -7 Leuopold that he loves. My wife is hounding me to go to the Magdalen Islands for the last 2 years. I will tell her that I will go if you trade scopes with me....my 1.5 - 5 for your 2 -7, I could be convinced to pay you a few extra $ in the trade. If no deal that's OK too, as my scope has been very good to me.

Yea Rodney, I was teasing you about the scope....I have had it since 1979 & figure it on top of my .30-06 Remington semi-auto riflehas harvested about 2 tons of deer, moose & even black bear...I will not change it....I will have ituntil it dies a natural death...
My wife's familyis from PEI, she loves the water & swims like a fish...I love the water too but on top......my son & I are avid fishermen & swim but only when necessary (ie. our boat tips over)... I will give you a shout about the islands...my wife has all the brochures etc. from the tourist shop & I have pulled up un the internet....looks beautiful...my brother & I are going 1000 miles north for a week Oct. 25....we have a bull moose permit....so we will looking for Bullwinkle...
regards Al

I live in Whitby....40 miles east of Toronto....we go west of Thunder Bay
Last year 1 of our boys with us, the 70 year old, missed a yearling bull facing him at 100 yards BOOM BOOM BOOM BOOM....I don't believe it was the Redfield...he was a sharpshooter and is still quit effective BUT we have noticed some slippage in the last few years Uunfortunatley no moosemeat in the freezer last year)
....I am 57, my brother 58 & Old Ed 73
Just my bro & me this year.....Good Luck to you, make that 1st shot count
My 06 is on at 50 yards and on at 250.....I shot a 10 point buck 2 years ago 254 yards......good medicine
That 06 with the Redfield can make a difference near & far....
