Vietnam scopes comparison.
My friend was asking me about the scopes used during Vietnam on the M40, Model 70 etc. One of his questions was how the scopes compared to those in use now. Namely say where would the scopes fall in the price range and quality of modern scopes. Would say the old redfield be in the same class as the current ones. Would it be up there with Night Force. I can't seem to find it (can't even remember if it was just a post on a forum or an article) but I remember reading something where some Vietnam vet was saying that even the lower end scopes we have now (Leupold vx-1's, prostaffs) are superior to the scopes in use during the 60's and 70s.
