Re: Tasco Scopes
I will admit that I don't know what the quality of today's Tasco scope are. The couple I own back in the 60's and 70's were all junk.
I have since gone to all Leupolds, they will take a lot of hard hunting before showing any signs of any problems. Most of the time once mounted they will need no adjustment unless you change ammo.
With that said I will also admit that I sent two back to the factory this year. One was 25 years old, that I took a hard fall with that would no longer hold point of aim. The fall I took was like slamming the scope on frozen ground.
The other is off my son's rife which is 10+ years old that also has taken some bad falls over the years.
Mine has come back, fully fixed, works great again. The cost was shipping to Leupold. His I just sent in on Friday.
I know the cost is a factor to a lot of hunters, myself included, but the new Leupolds VXI & Redfields, Made by Leupold, are in most hunters price range. Another trick is buy a used Leupold, off ebay or anywhere. If there is something wrong with it, send it back to Leupold and, they will fix it free of charge. You don't need to have been the original owner or need any kind of a receipt. Made or assembled right here in the USA too. It doesn't get any better than that in today's world.
