redfield rifle scopes review

The Revolution series is one of those redfield rifle scopes that is known for balancing budget and quality. It can be purchased with a 4-Plex duplex or an Accu-range varmint or hunter reticle. Both types have a ballistic reticle that allows the marksman to compensate for bullet drop. It's also a fairly compact scope. This is important for the PTR as it can be difficult to maneuver a scope over 12" long while charging the weapon.

The eyepiece has a non-fast focus system that many shooters prefer. It takes a little longer to focus, but it is generally considered more durable than the fast-focus system. Redfield has machined a large knurled ring into the base of the rear lens bell to allow shooters to rotate the ocular until the reticle is in clear focus. They have also laser etched the nominal power levels into the body of the scope to help users quickly find their desired setting.

The tube and lenses are fully multi-coated. This is something we see more and more of in scopes that are priced in this range. The scope is waterproof and has rubber-sealed adjustment turrets. It doesn't have a parallax correction, which may be a concern for some hunters, but it isn't unreasonable to exclude that from such an affordable scope. The scope also doesn't come with any sun shades or flip up scope caps, which is expected from a low-priced scope. The scope is made from 6061-T6 aluminum and has a black anodized finish.
