Now that Tasco is out of the scope buisness where do you see their products going?
I have the same opinion as many, Smith and Wesson's "new" optics line will more than likely be the old Tasco line. What's your opinion?
I've said before, I'm glad to see Tasco going away. I'll miss their red dot sights and SS scopes, but the rest of their line was mostly crap.
S&W is trying to diversify into other paraphernalia to try to boost their sagging bottom line. I guess they see Harley Davidson raking in more money from their branded merchandise than their motorcycles, and want to follow suit.
Unfortunately everything with the S&W name on it, aside from guns, is the worst kind of crap, and I won't even consider buying anything they're trying to push.
Looks like another legendary American brand name is being turned into a crack whore.
