Is REDFIELD part of LEUPOLD?

U think it's safe to infer that scopes produced afterwards would be LEUPOLD quality?

The ones I have seen are quality scopes, and offer a lot of value.

I was checking this one out, http://swfa.com/Redfield-3-9x52-Revenge-Rifle-Scope-P53108.aspx
but the reticle looks like a wire inside a glass and there is no info on SWFA to find out. 

Redfield 3-9x52 Revenge Rifle Scope
Just ordered Viper PST/FFP for my main rifle,
but looking for a second scope for my second one, the Russian Mosin Nagant :)

I believe they have wire reticles, if it matters to you.
 
Vortex Diamondbacks are also nice budget scopes.

I'm looking at the specs, the only downside just by looking at the specs is the diameter of the tube it's 1".  I'm not sure if it's sufficient to withstand the recoil of Mosin.

I would be confident with it.

Tube size really does not have anything to do with recoil resistance.

This scope has a pretty large objective bell.  Make sure that it can be mounted on your rifle and clear the rear sight.
