bullet drop compensation,,,,compleat hog wash!
no such thing in a scope, only a realy pricy one like £1500.00p worth and there not that good! but there coming soon! driven by a lazer for range finding,,,
still your scope has clouded up becouse its leaking
water has got into it, it could be repaired but its not cheap to do, it needs a complet strip down all the class cleand and new seals then a re-gas and it should be as good as new for another 25 years or so,
any good scope with mill dot will work for you, you just need to relurn the bullet drop over again,,and with the years of shooting you have had that should come easy as falling over,,,why not just get a good prised 3/9x40 mill dot and try that out insted, you will be plesently pleased with todays mid priced range scopes treet your self, and save money at the same time

SOURCE: Adjusting Range on Redfield Scope

There should be a set screw or screw that you can loosen to make that adjustment. Once you have it where you like it, just tighten it back up and enjoy you ability to make those quick adjustments when needed.

SOURCE: Where can I get a

Dear Carl,

I have the same problem and have not been successful finding an actual manual. However, if you go to "abousainc.com" there is a link for general instructions. It is under "Redfield Scopes" and then scroll down to "How to use the AccuTrac." However, it does not give the starting point of the instructions and only gives the table for the different dials. I will try to explain what those 2 lines at the top of the reticle are for.

The average whitetail from the top of the shoulder to the bottom of the chest should fit exactly inbetween these 2 lines when the zoom is used correctly. If you notice, the yardage counter in the bottom left (4:00 position) it will tell the yardage of the deer when you zoom in or out and the torso fills these 2 lines. You may also notice it starts at 200yds. Thats because you need have your rifle zeroed in at 100 yds. So there's no point displaying less than 200 yds. This is where the different dials come in. For example: the deer is 300yds away. You zoom in or out until the torso of the deer is inbetween the 2 lines then look at the yardage in the 4:00 position. It should read approx 300yds. Then you dial up to the number 3 position on the elevation knob and aim as you would if the deer where at 100ds.

Look up which dial you need on the ABOUSA site on the AccuTrac tables I mentioned earlier. You might be lucky and find the dial you have is the right one for your caliber. If not, this company was once the offical repair facility for Redfield, Colorado. They also have the different dials for sale but are quite expensive...$10--$30 each.

Hope this helps,
Mark

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

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.

Need basic usage instructions for accu range and accu trac i.e. what do the horizontal lines that are located at the top of the reticle do or symbolize or represent.


http://stevespages.com/zip/united_states_army_fm_23-10%20-%2017_august_1994.zip

in order to get basics you need to know how to run the optic, i suggest you download this and read it, and start practicing. or find the users manual on your scope to figure how to work your elevation, windage, and rectify paralax.

I NEED TO IDENTIFY A SCOPE.IT IS A REDFIELD WITH OVAL EYEPIECE AND ROUND FRONT.IT HAS A DIAL ON TOP THAT SAYS UP WITH AN ARROW.IT IS 12.75 INCHES LONG.ALSO HAS A DIAL ON EYEPIECE END THAT GOES FROM 3 TO...


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.

Redfield Rifle Scope Manual


I own a Redfield spotting scope the model year is between the 70's to 80's and I need to find a manual for it. But I was Wondering if you could answer a question there is a crossair, then there is another one right above that, then there is a loop on the bottom right hand corner. There is also a yard marker that starts at 600 and goes down to 100. Do you know what it is and how to use it or what the purpose of it is if you could help me that would be great. Thank you for all your help..Joshua Gambler
