Need to send in my redfield raider 600 for a new one. just bought it tonight and it will not focus at all


Sounds like a good plan. Before you send it back make sure you are using it correctly (distance and control adjustments, including Parallax adjustment if you have one).

Why does my 30 yr old redfield, widefield ,range finder accu-trac scope that has operated great for all these yrs, now I cain,t get it hit in the same zone a target. The rifle is clean and operates great...


well if the bullet hit is jumping about its all down to your scope,,,it could be that its just "lose on its mount!" or its died on you,,like the cross hair is bouncing about inside the scope so with the recoial it jumps into a new place with every shot fired there by giving you a new point of impact,,,
this can happen if the scope was wound right up or down or left or right and strain was put on the adjusters,,,you may need to buy a new scope,,,,a good "air rifle!" scope will work quite well on most full bore rifles,,,yer right i here you say!!! ok,,iv got air rifle scope's on my .303 + 7.62 + 22-250 + .357 under leaver marlin cowboy, all 3 of my .22 rim fire's and they have been on these rifles for years now,,,1000,000, of rounds fired so far, with no problems! and no drifting so far,,,
an air rifle scope is very strong you know,,,but they only cost £150,00p or less for a good one?????
ps,,,,dont buy a tesco scope there cra*y

Loss of focus when izoom in


This typically means that you are have exceeded the scopes ability to focus at the distance that you are shooting. This scope is optimized for 50 yards and will function well at all magnification settings. Closer than this optimal distance the higher magnifications may present problems with blurring. Many scopes have a "parallax" adjustment that changes the optical focus to correct this problem. Several of my 22 mag scopes have this adjustment on the objective bell. You simply set the indicator line on the appropriate yardage indicator (making minor adjustments to fine tune focus). Hope this helps

Hazy scope


Before you send it off, check to make sure that you have it focused correctly. The focus ring should be just in front of the rear optics. Then it depends on where you live. Normally you would take it back to the person who sold it to you, if it were a retailer. Or I generally use a person who specialises in telescopes and binoculars. This person is a absolute genius with any type optics. I live in Adelaide Australia.

I am looking for an owners manual for a Redfield 6x20x50 Illuminator scope


Contact Leupold, they purchased Redfield.
Here's the info from Redfield's website, hope this helps, Mark the Gunsmith:
When Leupold purchased Redfield in April, 2008, Leupold did not assume the Redfield warranty. Because many Redfield customers have contacted Leupold with regard to the former Redfield warranty, Leupold is making this information available to Redfield optics owners.
At this time, three Redfield repair facilities are available should your Redfield product require service: Parson's Scope Service(513-867-0820), ABO USA Inc (305-859-2010) and Iron Sight Inc. (918-445-2001). The contacts provided are for information purposes only, as these companies are not affiliated with Leupold & Stevens. Please contact them for all information regarding repair, service, and associated charges.
As a courtesy we are now offering 20% off the price of a new Leupold scope, up to $100, in trade for any defective Redfield scope. If you would like to take us up on that offer you may call us at 1-800-LEUPOLD.

The best guess I can make using my books going back to 1970. Cant be sure of the dates they started, but about 1980 Redfield made what they called, Widefield low profile scopes. They made 7 of these Widefield scopes, 3 Variable power wide view and 2 they called Accu-trac Varable these 2 are in 2x-7x power and 3x-9x power the Accu-trac scope is the one you have I believe.

Are you looking set the eye relief or the focus ring?

For eye relief you need to loosen the scope in the rings, mount the rifle to your shoulder with your standard hold and cheek weld. At this point, slide the scope back and forth in the rings until you obtain a full field of view. Tighten one of the rings slightly, dismount and remount the rifle several times to ensure correct adjustment. Level scope and tighten rings a final time.

For focus adjustment (remember that you are using the eyepiece to focus on the cross hair, not your target!) loosen the lock ring and turn the eyepiece until the cross hair is focused. It is best if you check it several times by closing and opening your eye several times. The crosshair should be instantly in focus. If your eye must adjust, then you need to refocus until the focus is instant.

The two dials on the scope are for adjusting the bullet point of impact. They will typically move POI 1/4 inch at 100 yards.
