Tasco or Trashco?

601 Views 5 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  JL
I just bought a used Tasco 6-24X44 target scope(TG624X44DS). I've already got a Weaver V-16 that I'm going to use on a 10/22 I'm building up, but I thought this might be a decent scope for a .17 varmint rifle and the price was good. I haven't mounted it, but the optics seem clear at all magnification powers and all adjustments seem smooth. The only problem I can see so far is that the junky rubber "All Weather" finish is flaking off, and I'm helping it along with some acetone:) I wanted to know if anyone has had any experience with this model or any models from the Tasco target line. I know from some posts I've read in the past that Tasco has made alot of junk and also a few good models - I just don't know where this one falls. Here's a link I found to an online seller showing the same thing:


Any opinions?

I have a couple of the Tasco...

Japanese made TS 6-24X44 AO, the original "Target Silhouette" scopes with fine crosshairs and a 1/8 MOA dot. When they moved production to China they re-designated it the "TG." I've heard the optics and quality isn't anywhere near as good on the PRC made ones.
