I know know anything about the scope you asked about, but I've found Redfields to be good quality scopes.
I also wouldn't try to discourage anyone from having range finding abilities in a scope and learning how to use them.
Having said that, I'm a fan of hand held range finders. Mine is 8X and I use them instead of binoculars when glassing and ranging, its safer then using a rifle scope while hunting, you don't know who else is hunting down that power line.
