Before my time, but in the '60s and '70s around here Redfield scopes were IT.

Strangely, when I bought my pre-64, it had Redfield mounts and a Weatherby scope, the one with the in-line adjustment turret.

Looking in the late '50s 'Rifles, a Modern Encyclopedia' and 1956 Stoegers, it seems that the old Leupold and Stevens were pretty popular, Redfield wasn't yet selling their own scopes, but Lyman had the All American line and there were a ton of Weavers. Bushnell was already available. You would certainly be in style with a Weaver K4 or K6 and those are pretty common to find.

Thank you Sir for the information.
