Yep, they were good, solid scopes with a great deserved reputation. Had a large following. Too bad their sloppy housekeeping made the EPA fine them to death.
Great quality scopes today are significantly better than they were decades ago. Better lens coatings and multicoatings and index matching and scratch resistance are now available. Better nitrogen filling and lens sealing. Better erectors with more reliable and precise tracking and repeatability. Lighter aluminum with more one piece tubes.
Of course, today's junk is as bad as yesterday's.
Even entry level scopes from manufacturers like Burris http://www.opticsplanet.com/burris-3-9x ... scope.html , Leupold http://www.opticsplanet.com/leupold-var ... ticle.html , and Nikon http://www.opticsplanet.com/nikon-rifle ... -9x40.html offer much greater light transmission than was formerly possible on all but the very best scopes of decades ago.
The aforementioned scopes compare favorably to your Tracker.

Back to my quest, where can I get this scope checked out by Redfield, on their dime?
At this time, two Redfield repair facilities are available should your Redfield product require service: ABO USA Inc (305-859-2010) and Iron Sight Inc (918-445-2001). The contacts provided are for information purposes only, as ABO Inc. and Iron Sight Inc. are not affiliated with Leupold & Stevens. Please contact them for all information regarding repair, service, and associated charges.
I called ABO in FL about problems with my Refield Tracker. They have a recording on that number. They want you to send the scope and a check for $38 to an address on the recording. Turn-around time is about 6 weeks. Gotta love those "lifetime warantees".
