    Made by Leupold here in the good ole USA. They are covered by Leupold's lifetime warrenty. Nothing fancy, but a great huntin' scope.

    It's the very same 'scope that Leupold sells as the VXI & made in the same factory. The higher power ones will not focus closer than 25yards and I sent the one I had back and bought a Leupold VXII with an AO, which is not offered in their Redfield models. They do make a very nice 8x32 binocular at an excellent price BTW.

    Thats odd that they won't focus. I have a 4x12x40 on my on my tc 50 cal. muzzleloader and it is clear as can be. It has been on there for 2 years without any problems.

    Got a 3x9x40 on a 257 ackley with no problems. Crystal clear comparable to the vx3 & monarchs I've had. Excellent scope for money.

    I have a 4x12x40 on a .223 Bolt Gun and absolutely love it, no problem with focus at all.

    I had problems mounting mine on a Browning A-bolt II, had to reverse the mount which made loading the gun hard. Took it off and put it on my 280 Pro Hunter, seems to be decent for the price
