I Wish Redfield Still Made Their Wide View scopes in 3-9 power, or even 4-power. Seems like those scopes were longer than what is being produced today. It's very hard to find a scope that will give you enough eye relief without having to buy a front extention ring to reverse so you can place the scope closer to your eye. Also the wide view Redfields with their oval shaped objectives allowed to use of low mounting rings, & more easy to "Square" as they were glossy & not that "Matt" finish that is rough. Can't understand why they dropped them. I have one on my Ruger Model 77 MKII in .270 and it is perfect! The scopes today including the high-end ones are NOT as good as the ones built several years ago & seem to be shorter in length unless you buy a target scope.
