Confirmed... it is made in the Phillipines along with a couple of other name brand scopes in the same facility...

But today my grand daughter and I went to Wholesale Sports, she wanted to look at and for a new Diamond Edge bow for herself and I wanted to see if they had any of the Revenge scopes - they did. $179.99

Anyway I asked to check it out, I did not request to take it outside just looked at it in the building. OK so maybe I am easily impressed but I really liked the optics and the Acru Range Reticule. The fine cross hairs at the cross point are realy nice for me and the heavy verticle and horizontal X to the center were just what I like.

It does share one characteristic with all the other Leupolds that I have... the power ring is tight - tight to turn... Since I am blind I have to turn the fast focus ring out a healthy chunk to get the reticule focus the way i need it to.

The counter guy then asked if I wanted to try it in a stock which I quickly agreed to but I asked him if he had a ruler and woul ddo some measurin gfor me, which he agreed to. The stock was terribly short - I mean really short but I got on the stock and asked him to measure the approximate eye relief. On 3X it was very close to 5 inches and on 9X it was just less than 4". I am happy with that, even though it really does not matter to me that much.

Also while in the stock I used it to locate and sight in various things. Target aquistition on 3 power was very quick and very easy... I found no real problem on 9x either but the build is only so big...

I really think it is going to be a very good scope for me. My only regret is that it does not have the rain guard coating on the lenses like my good Bushnells, so I am going to end up using scope covers, which I do not very need or use with the Elites.

The last thing I/we did is I asked my grand daughter try it and see if she felt she could see things... She loved it, but heck she is only 14...

Thanks for the update, sabotloader.

I am glad you like the scope. I wouldn't worry about the Phillipines thing. Some great scopes are made there including Vortex Viper and Nikon Monarch.

The eye relief thing is a bit odd. The specs list I found had it at 3.5 inches throughout the range. Over an inch of variation is a bit concerning to me, but is in line with other Leupold scopes I have seen.

Keep us updated!

A few folks have posted on other sites that Redfield is offering a $40 rebate on Redfield Revenge scopes... Naturally cuz I already bought one...

Yeah your correct, what I meant was that Cabelas is advertising the rebate. Bass Pro is as well. Some companies I saw online were not advertising it so I just said Cabelas.

I purchased mine from Man Venture Outpost, they were the least expensive at that time for the 3x9x42 Sabot or Hunter Model with the Accu-ranger reticule...

http://www.manventureoutpost.com/search.php?search_query=redfield+revenge+&x=15&y=12

The Redfield Revenge 3x9x42 4-plex is $136.39 and the Accu-Ranger is $152.89.

There is a problem though - they are hard to keep in stock...

So with the $40 rebate from Redfield... well you can do the math...
