Ok, I'm gonna buy a nice compact USA made scope for my Kimber .243.

Its gotta be USA made, 2 x 7 x 36. I'm torn between the Redfield and the Leupold VXIII 2.8 x 8. $159 versus $400. Is the Leupold four times better the scope?

9 Leupold & Stevens Re-Launches Redfield as Bargain Brand The Redfield Gun Sight Company was founded in 1909 by John Hill Redfield. The company’s product line expanded from open sights to include riflescopes, mounts, binoculars, and spotting scopes. In 1998 Redfield closed its doors in Denver, Colorado, marking the end of an era. Redfield changed hands several times until April 2008 when Leupold & Stevens, Inc. purchased the Redfield brand name and associated intellectual property. Leupold has revived Redfield, positioning the new Redfield scope line at the low end of the market. The latest generation of Redfield scopes are priced from $130.00 –$150.00 retail. Revolution™ riflescopes, the first products in the new Redfield line, are American-made at Leupold’s plant near Beaverton, Oregon. Revolution models include 2-7x33mm, 3-9x40mm, 4-12x40mm, and 3-9x50mm models, all with either 4-plex or Accu-Range reticles. The Accu-Range reticle provides hold-over points from 200-600 yards.

Thanks but a bit too big for my little Kimber. You guys should develop a lighter, more compact hunting scope in this power range. As the population gets older, more old farts like me (with our compact rifles) are looking to save on weight when hiking the woods.

Thanks for the feedback, we are always looking to improve.
