Background Info: I have a tasco World Class 3-9x50 rifle scope. Last summer i went out to sight in my rifle and when going to adjust the windage the entire adjuster came off. The small thing you click was now stuck inside the cap, to add to it, the threads were broken off in several peices. I mailed it in and they returned it, all the pieces the same and said the particular scope had been discontinued. The only thing wrong with the scope is the missing adjustment peice.
 
Q: Is there any place i could look for a replacement part?
Q: Or do i have to throw it all away?
 
Thanks

I broke a Tasco world class 3-9x40 and when i called Bushnell to get it fixed they wanted $40 to do it.  I said I can buy a new one for that, she said when then I would buy the new one.

New 3-9x40 World Class right now in Ontario is $55 - throw it out & get a better scope.

If you pay with peanuts, you end up with monkeys!

Bushnell does Tasco repairs so I would call them.

             Cool    Sounds to me like you got all the good out of that Tasco scope.  You can use it as a paperweight now and get yourself another scope.   --Ed

I do know of two people who have Taso world class scopes and they seem to enjoy them, without any problems.  I'm sure there are thousands of these scopes mounted on rifles without problems.  Its your choice if you want to try another one, but I wouldn't invest the time or money trying to have it repaired.

the old saying--more to repair than to buy a new one--probably applies here
