Default Redfield

I saw on another site that Leupold has bought the Redfield name. They will offer the Redfield as one of their lower priced scopes, they will not do warranty work on any of the older Redfield scopes not bought thru Leupold. The scopes will be assembled in the US with imported glass like their other scopes.

Can anyone help me find someone to repair a Redfield rifle scope? I have not had much luck trying to contact ABO USA Inc or Iron Sight Inc. I have an older Redfield 'LO-PRO' 3X9 variable scope, on my 300 Win Mag. The cross hairs are starting to rotate in the tube and I would like to get that fixed.

Repairing older ones might be a problem. You may have to bite the bullet and get a new scope.

This is posted on the bottom of the new redfield home page:

The contacts provided are for information purposes only, as ABO Inc. and Iron Sight Inc. are not affiliated with Leupold & Stevens.

I'm rocking an old school 4X Redfield on the .30-06 I'm shooting this year. I love them....I don't know if I'm thrilled about Leupold picking up the brand name, though. My dad has used some Leo glass but....I've heard some bad reviews of it in recent years.

Never heard of a Leo. I thought Leupold bought Redfield. Leupold is one of the finest makers of riflescopes on this planet except for a couple of their low budget (cheap) models like the Rifleman. Redfield was one of the best American scopes at one time, and I am glad to see the brand name come back. Maybe they will once again be considered top shelf at some point iin the future. I have some old Redfield, Weaver, and Leupold scopes on old rifles that once belonged to members of my family. Sometimes I take one of these old rifles out for a deer hunt and while the scopes don't compare to current scopes they still work just fine.

Those old Redfield scopes were outstanding in their time and still work fine today. I have an old Tracker made in the 60's and its still one of my favs.
