Im selling some guns for someone and one of the rifles has this scope on it that Im not sure what it is. Would appreciate help with ID so I can figure out how much value it adds to the rifle. Thanks!

If it is heavy, it is steel bodied and worth a good penny by itself, there are collectors of the old Redfields

Thanks for the ID! Can I tell if its the steel body by the serial number? Hate to take it off as it is zero'd in.

It would actually be better to pull it and sell it separate than the rifle. They are not a great scope but there are collectors who will pay. As a package on a rifle it really adds no value to the rifle unless you find a collector who actually wants that exact rifle as well.

Thanks. It is not magnetic so must be a newer one.

I don't agree WP, at least for me and the early 80's Redfield was a upgrade at least for my budget at that time. I remember buying a 3-9 low profile and being tickled to death at getting that scope mounted on my rifle. It stay there and never lost zero until I moved up to a 44mm objective lense, wish I still had it, at least I still have the Rifle. But I'll swear they were made strictly made in the USA.

Definitely a Redfield Widefield.

Considered a 'fair' scope back in the day. But certainly not anything special aside from its uniquely shaped lenses.

I am much surprised to hear there are collectors for them...but maybe so.


Spartans ask not...how many, but where!
