One of my collectible 22’s is a drippy mint, M69-A. The one with the grooved receiver and chrome bolt and trigger guard. Beings that I like all period correct scopes for my scopeable 22’s, I had on it a minty Weaver, J4, made in El Paso. Didn’t work out for me so I am installing a Baby Redfield I had laying around.

The scope has original covers and Tip Off mount. It is N.I.B. and I will sell it for $100 + UPS 3 Day Shipping of $10.   Big Larry

I much prefer the small Redfield to the Weaver even though it is not quite period correct.  If you plan on shooting it you made a good choice.

Yeah, I have had this Redfield for several years. There seems to be some confusion as to what the “Baby Redfield” is. There were several 3/4″ 22 scopes made by Redfield and they all look like “Baby Redfields”. Straighten this out JWA.  Thanks, Big Larry

Hi Larry,

I am not sure how much clarification I can give you since “Baby Redfield” is a generic nickname (just like calling your Winchester 69A a “Winny”).

I have seen the ¾” tube 4X Redfield “Sport-STER” (Standard Eye Relief) rimfire scope (circa 1965-1973), the ¾” tube 4X Redfield “Westerner” rimfire scope (circa 1973-1974) and the subsequent ¾” tube 4X Redfield “Traditional” rimfire scope (circa 1974-1986ish) all called “Baby Redfields” by some people.

In general, the Redfield “Traditional” 4X rimfire scope is the model that is most closely associated with the term “Baby Redfield” but I think that is just because there are more “Traditional” model scopes available.

If you show me a picture of the side of your scope with the markings and the overall length I can give you the correct manufacturer’s name for your 4X Redfield ¾” tube rimfire scope and the date range it was produced.

All three models look similar and are very good scopes for the mid-range Winchester rimfire rifles.  They are still my favorite choice for plinking and squirrel rifles as they are scaled to match the more diminutive .22 rimfires.
