Redfield Revenge 4-12x42 Riflescope - 4-plex Reticle Review:
I bought this scope to place on my .270. I was looking for a value scope that would perform well. After doing some research I found the Redfield Revenge, and it was even on sale Ė so better yet! Redfield is made by Leupold, actually in the same factory, so at least I had the name to back me up. The only thing I didnít catch right away is that this scope is actually made in the Philippines and not in the USA like the Redfield Revolution scope.
This was kind of a big detail to me, and kind of bothered me once I seen made in the Philippines engraved on the bottom side of my new scope. Nevertheless I mounted it using Leupold mounts and took it out to sight it in. The glass is clear and it looks nice on the gun.
The one complaint that really hurt this scope on the review was the eye relief. Not good. You have to be so close to the scope to see the picture without the black ring around the image, and after looking through it for a while watching the animal, my eyes seemed to get very fatigued. Bottom line, if looking for a value scope, I think I would pass on this and look at some other options.
