Redfield Introduces the Battlezone Tac.22 Riflescope for Rimfire Shooters

(GunReports.com) — Redfield has introduced its latest tactical optic, the Battlezone Tac.22 2-7x34mm riflescope.

Designed for 22 Long Rifle firearms, the Battlezone Tac.22 comes with two elevation adjustment dials. The first is marked in ¼ MOA increments, and the second is a Bullet Drop Compensation (BDC) dial calibrated to the 22 LR, shooting a 36-grain hollowpoint at 1,260 fps. The BDC dial is marked from 50 to 150 yards.

The Battlezone Tac.22 features the Tac-MOA reticle, which matches the ¼ MOA adjustment dials. Stadia lines on the horizontal and vertical crosshairs are set at two minute of angle increments, allowing for fast windage and bullet drop adjustments as well as range estimation. Parallax is set at a rimfire-friendly 75 yards.

Other features include a fully multi-coated lens system, fast-focus eyepiece, knurled pop-up resettable adjustment dials with audible clicks, and a wide range of adjustment travel.

Like all other Redfield optics, the Battlezone Tac.22 is nitrogen-filled and iswaterproof, fog proof and shockproof. All Redfield riflescopes are covered by the Redfield “No Excuses” warranty.

Acquired by Leupold & Stevens, Inc. in 2008, Redfield is now a brand of the Oregon-based company. The Redfield Gun Sight Company was founded in 1909 by John Hill Redfield.

I do not own one of these but gave serious consideration to buying one. Everything I have learned about this scope indicates that it is an excellent scope for .22 rimfire shooting. Being a Redfield, which is owned by Leupold, I assumed that it was made in the USA. I am very disappointed to learn that it is NOT made in the USA and is imported from the Philippines. Until I learned that I thought that it was a super value for what I thought was an American made scope. But now, when compared to all of the other imported .22 scopes out there, it is expensive. That is still not to say that its not a good scope with super features. But with wearing the Redfield name but not being made in the USA took all of the luster out of it for me. I think I'll probably end up buying an American made Leupold VX-1 2-7x32mm instead for not too much more $$$.
