Default Redfield Sight Set Order

Will someone please rank these three sight sets in order of preference, quality, desirability, etc.:

International
Palma
Olympic

I used to know which was the most/least desirable but cannot find the info now.

Thanks,
Hank

Well,

my $.02 worth and I am no expert:

Best...Palma
next best...International
next next best....Olympic

And to tell the truth, International and Olympic may be interchangeable on my scale?

There is a real good thread on here somewhere that describes in detail the differences.

Send a PM to president or just wait for him to find the thread, he'll know for sure!

+1 to the above with the thought that if you know you will never be shooting past 100-150 yds with rimfire you could live without the Palma. Quality is excellent with fit and finish equal on all three.
The International and Olympic use 7/32" eyepieces whereas the Palma uses the now standard 9mm. The larger eyepiece allows a huge selection of optical aids of current mfg. Options for 7/32" are very few. You can use an adapter and go from 9mm to 7/32" however.
The International and Olympic are very similair in design with the International larger and stouter in construction. There was an International offered with 1/8 MOA clicks but you'll have to pay more and look harder for that model.

Thank you for the information. That will help in my negotiations with a guy who has an older rifle for sale.
