3/4" tube redfield 2 3/4x

Just got 3/4" tube Redfield scope that is marked 2 3/4x. I can't find any info on this 2 3/4 power scope. All I have seen are 2x and 4x "baby Redfields". Anyone have any info on a 2 3/4 power with 3/4" tube?

Thanks

Welcome aboard, I am not familiar with vintage Redfields. We do have some folks who know far more than I do about just about everything firearms related.
I moved your thread to Gun Gear as it fits better here than in New Users.
That forum is for introducing yourself and getting welcomed to the group.

Is it a rimfire scope?? That is my guess. I have a couple of old scopes I got in the 1970's that are Redfield Widefield's. One is 2x7 and the other is 4x, they are 1" tubes. In looking at the history of the company there were 4 separate owners in the span of 12 years so history is a little muddled. Do like everyone else call it vintage and put it on e-bay for a $300 starting bid.

redfield 2 3/4 power 3/4" tube

Just got this scope on ebay at a pretty good price. It is a 3/4 inch tube. All the baby Redfields I have seen are 2x or 4x. The only other marking is T11880 which I assume is the serial number. This may not be a rimfire scope.

Thanks

I think the shotgun scopes were 1" but not certain. Leupold owns them now maybe the Redfield people left have some institutional history and can give you info. I never had a problem with the old Redfields as they were decent glass. Don't know about the newer ones.

3/4" tube almost certainly makes it a rimfire scope, but in the early days of pistol scopes, circa the 50s and 60s, there were some 3/4" tube pistol scopes. Pics would help.

Sure 2 3/4 didn't indicate 2x with 3/4" tube? Like NCG said, pics would help.

The only difference between 22 rimfire scope , pistol scope and a centerfire rifle scope is where the parallax is set at . It only take 30 sec to see where the parallax is set at most scopes . Most 22 the parallax is set around 75 yds and most hunting centerfire scopes are set at 150 yds . The parallax setting is the most important thing to a serous bench rest shooter and need a scope with a parallax adjustment on there scope and a target like the one below is impossible to shoot without the parallax set perfect .

PS ..... and air guns too .

I did finally find some information on my Redfield scope. I believe it is a Redfield Sportster. This scope had a 3/4" tube and was produced in 2 3/4 and 4 power. It was produced in the mid 60's - ? and was suitable for center fire and rim fire rifles. I got this information from an article in the March 2015 issue of Guns magazine and a 1968 advertisement for Redfield scopes.

Thanks for the replies
