I have a Tasco TR4X16X40  trajectory range finding scope that I got on a rifle - I sent the scope to ABO to see if there was anything wrong with it. This base cost for that was $23.00.

 

 

Their diagnosis is that the scope is okay but I need a $5.00 locking cap and an optional only $30.00 cleaning (and re-gassing).  I would seem to me that spending the money for the cleaning might not be wasted money. I know that for a Tasco  scope this could be more than the scope is worth. My thought is that I would have a clean, serviced, range finding scope, fairly cheap.

 

Anybody have any opinions on whether it would be worth it or not?

 

Thanks.

Thanks Cory 

 

appreciate the reply and advise.

 

I do hate ABO because they take forever and I have no idea of the quality of their work.

 

By the by, I think it was you who gave a good nod to the elite 4200 series. I bought one - I dont see anythng real objectionable about the lenght.

I would be willing to bet that every scope that comes in the door will need a cleaning.  Even those that are new in the box.
