Tasco Target/Varmint 6-24x42mm A/O
First off, I have to say I loved this scope. At 24x it got a little cloudy, but anything below 18x was nice & clear. A mil-dot reticle along with target turrets and A/O make this scope a great deal for the money.
They run a little under $100 new.
Yesterday @ an Ohio Arfcom shoot, I put roughly 1200 rounds through my 10/22. Then all of a sudden the picture goes blurry....While I'm shooting.
So I play w/ the A/O and turn the power up and down....nothing. Pull the scope out of the rings and shook it...rattles.
I don't have the original box...and can't find the cabelas receipt...going to see if it can be warrantied @ all...kinda doubt it though. I'd expect this scope to be able to handle centerfire...as thats' what it seems to be designed for.
Yet it failed on a .22lr.
Has this happened to any of you guys
I bought one of the original "World Class" scopes made in Japan. It was all I could afford at the time. It cost me just over $200 many years ago. I put it on my Rem 700classic in .22-250. It has a 1/8" dot in the center w/ very thin crosshairs, 6X24 w/AO and target knobs. It has never failed me. I still feel like I should replace it because it is "Trashco" but it works pretty well.
It will probably fail me one of these days. Sorry yours quit ya.
Edited to add: Take a look at the Simmons line. I have one on my 10/22 and love it. 4.5X14 w/AO. It is a dang nice scope, and under $100.
4.5-14x40 w/ AO would be perfect. Where did you get your simmons?
I have a 3-9x32 simmons that I'll put on it for now, but it doesnt have AO, so it kind of sucks @ 50 yards. Great @ 100 though.
I don't want an objuective bigger than 42mm, because then I'd need a higher base or rings.
I like my ring/base setup now & want to leave it alone. I'm a cheap bastard .
I actually bought mine from a pawn shop used. It is the "Whitetail Classic" version. I'm not sure if they make the exact model still, but I've seen a few that have the same features. I think it is 44mm objective. That might turn you off, but you should still check it out.
