Anybody know anything about them?  Made in Australia, not sure if they are in business anymore.  I am mostly trying to find out if a Model 300-A scope by them is a rimfire type scope or would hold up to the recoil of smaller caliber centerfire rifle.  Small 3/4" scope with click adjustable windage and elevation probably made around the '50's but close in construction/build/feel to a Lyman, Redfield, or Kollmorgen of the same time period.

Hi , Field instruments were made in Melbourne and are well and truly gone. The scopes were good solid well made pieces that ended up on a lot of Aust firearms at the time, which mainly included
Lithgow 22's and Lee enfield 303's. They also made a side mount to suit the SMLE to mount them. They should have no problem standing up to a small centrefire.
 
cheers
Deano
