I really do like the Redfield scopes.
I LOVE the way they look
I love how their parent company is Leupold
Its just that there is something missing.
The glass just isn't up to par with what you would expect (my personal experience)
Just yesterday I held some binoculars of theirs. At Bass Pro Shops it was $150, 10x42 pair. Loved the look, loved the heft to them, and though the glass was good. That is until I asked to see a pair of Nikon Trailblazers. 10x42 pair, same $150 price. The glass was noticeably better.
I would go for Nikon, Leupold, or Weaver.
I think that Buckmark you are looking at is the route to go
