This is a third post that is a follow up to comments and interest from @Windwalker about rifle scopes. As background, for the past several years I have been photographing a variety of early rifles and historically interesting parts for my son who was a Marine (having deployed in Fallujah as a sniper squad member and returned unharmed).
While doing the photography, and my son explaining the background and history, I came to see a subtle industrial beauty and personality that you wouldn’t expect. Anyhow, I hope some of you find this as interesting as I do.
There isn’t much to say about this Redfield 1” tube, 3x-9x scope other than it having serial number F57442 and a near mint condition original greenish colored anodizing. These Redfield scopes have a unique reticle that includes a ‘tombstone’ to track distance. My son is meticulously cataloging these "greenies" and probably has one of the largest collections around. They are really interesting.
