Although it has often been reported that Lyman Manufactured the Korean War "Redfield Jr." scope bases. I have never seen any convincing evidence that this is the case. I think probably what really happened is that Redfield manufactured the the bases for Lyman who then in turn packaged them in G.I. plain brown envelopes.

Why would Lyman go to the trouble of tooling up to make a product that was not already in its commercial line up just to fill a fairly small government order?

None of the Korean War bases is marked (unlike all the ww 2 bases). JMHO
