The only thing worse than Trashco is Simmons! For a few $$$ more you can get a lot better scope! Nikon, Luepy or even a Bushnell.

Dont know about the new tasco world class but the older ones were descent scopes got two one on a rem 788 in 222 that's been on their for over 30 years and one on a savage 24 20 ga/22 mag since the late 60s early 70s. One problem with the one on the savage fogged up inches about 25 years ago sended it back and they fixed it. Never a problem again. They are on guns that are used a lot and hold up.

My first Tasco did good for about 4 years. When it did break, it did it at the range and thankfully not on a hunt. They did replace it in about 3 months, but the replacement wouldn't hold zero from the start. As far as the Simmons, it broke within a couple of seasons and to make it worse, it took me several attempts to even speak to a live person on the phone! Get the best you can afford! Good glass is worth the money.

Don't go cheap on your optics. It's really worth spending a little more for a decent scope. Nikon, Leupold, Vortex, and Burris all make good affordable scopes.

Nice line-up of scopes: I would add Bushnell and certainly there are a few others.

Buy it once.........................

Japan manufactured ( older ) Tasco scopes are quite good.

Yes they were. I have one of the old ones. When I'm having issues and want to determine if it's scope related, I put on that old Tasco. These days its purely used as a backup or testing scope. Optically, it isn't as clear or bright as my Leupys, Zeiss or Nikons but it sure as hell holds its zero.

If you think they are pretty good, then stick with them. I will not have any hunt rely on a $50 Chinese made POS. The older Japanese Tasco's were good scopes, but I don't think they were labeled World Class like the new ones.
