While at the last gun show, I came across an older model 3x9 Redfield with Duplex reticule. Pretty nice shape except for scuffed up adjustment knobs from years of having who-knows-what used as screwdrivers. Nostalgia got the better of me & using my cunning bargaining skills, I bought it for $45. LOL
If it is a Denver-era scope, you got a steal. I say send it off to Ironsight and get it refurbed. You won't be sorry, and you will probably be happy you did. Denver-made Redfields are fantastic scopes and on the used market, you can often find them for better than reasonable prices.

Over the last 10 years, I have bought 3 Denver Redfields and I would easily have to spend 3 times what I have in them to get the eqivalent in a new scope.

$45 for a used scope, $85 to have it refurbished puts you not to far away from a brand new Redfield.
Yeah, but a brand-new Redfield isn't half the scope of a Denver-made Redfield.
