Found a classic Redfield 4x scope at a garage sale.
Asking $40 but got it for $25.

It's nice and clear and I'm having so much fun with it I feel guilty I didn't just fork over the asking price.

This was used to shoot moose at 300 yards but works great for airguns at 10-20 yards.
I took off the front cap and screwed the front objective inward until the focus is clear at 15 yards.
There's no mil-dots and the crosshairs are thick compared to new scopes but its a hoot on this 'new to me' 1322 carbine shooting 10-20 meters.

Wish I could produce better pics.
The metal work and finish are pristine.

Just the right size for the 1322 and easier to shoot handheld compare to my other x16 scope

In 1974, everything was made in the USA.
Oregon USA in fact. Part of the North West outdoor culture.
Lots of Redfields here in BC, just didn't realize how nice they were.

The key is to re-focus these older fixed scopes so they work at air gun ranges.

Ain't that the truth, sir!

I remember getting stuff from the US back in the 70s when we were still in Asia! Those shavers, Samsonite attache cases, Florsheims, Bally, etc. were really made where they are supposed to!

Don't be too disappointed if it no longer holds its nitrogen charge.
Scopes this old have a common occurrence of seal failure. They will fog on the interior surfaces at about 28 F or so.

Unfortunately, the only way to check is to subject the scope to prolonged cold.
This is where a lot of old classic scopes will fail....

...I was just at Value Village and came home tonight with a real nice scope with dovetail mounts.( $30.00) ....There's no name on it but it has a nitrogen seal and the focus scale does 15yds to infinity (far away moose, lol) .....It's very clear, all glass and very heavy but shows some 'age' , and has a 1" tube ......I'm not into scopes and was just trying to find out the maker of this one....The lettering is gold and the turrets can be clicked with your fingers , not a coin ....the objective and rear lenses are quite large and bright , big enough that I can adapt my Sony video camera for night vision , ....that's actually why I bought it .......Someone must have had it on a .22 rimfire, I think due to the dovetail mounts ( which are quite sturdy ) .......Sometimes you really luck out at second hand stores and garage sales ....This is the second scope I've found at this particular Value Village ....a very nice but cheaper Beeman last time for $2.00 (seniors' day)......
