To follow up, the buddy I was buying the rifle from tossed in the 3-9x40 conquest that was on it for an extra $150. Ended up being a Savage 11 FCNS with Leupy dual dovetail mounts and a Conquest scope for $500. Almost forgot the best part, 2 months old and less than a box of shells through it.

Been looking at scopes in that same price point for an old German Mauser that I've had all my life that used to be my primary whitetail gun. I want to set it up as a backup gun. I've been intrigued by the Redfield line and the Vortex Diamondback line.

I have a couple older Redfield's but none of the new ones since Lupy bought them...have looked through a couple and in the store they appear clear and crisp. Same with the Vortex...have looked through them in the store and they too look clear and crisp in the store.

Find a Swift dealer and take a peak through one...you may well be surprised and impressed.

I have looked through the Redfields and I agree with your assessment of them -- and given they're backed by Leupold's guaranty, I would assume they are durable. Never handled the Diamondback, though. I have a Viper I'm happy with, but that's above my price point for this gun.

I would get a Leupold or a Burris. Both are great scopes.
