New to the forum.
 
Just purchased a used 6x44 Tasco Tatictal and trying to find any adjustment information and history of the scope.  I had never seen this Tasco; range finding rectile, target knobs with stop at each end of the rotation.

It was a special build done around the same time frame that the Super Sniper was made for the Navy.  The scope you have was made for the Israel Military.  It has a 26mm tube (not 1" or 30mm).  The reticle is designed to bracket a person from his or her waiste to the top of their head.  If they fit in the one with a 2 above it, they are 200 meters away.  Next is 400, 600, 800 and 10 is 1000.  The lines on the verticle are bullet drop and the horizontal lines are for walking, running targets.  The elevation turret is calibrated for bullet drop as well, the large numbers on top are in hundreds of meters.  IE: 5 = 500 meters.

Thank you for the information.  Very nice scope with good light gathering and clairity.  I'll test at the range this weekend and report .  I'm guessing the ranging is for 7.62x51 (.308), yes?

Went to the range yesterday to adjust and test the scope.  Nice range here in the Tampa area with up to 1000 yard lanes.  Adjusted the scope to 200 yards and worked throught all the adjustments up to 600 yards with the loads I make for this DPMS LR 308.  Great scope.  There is a "gong" at 585 yards, set the scope to 575 and aimed for the top of the gong.  With a spotter confirming, hit each 7 out of 9 times.
 
If you come across this scope, buy it.

If you're talking about the Manatee Gun Club in Myakka, the gong inside the truck tire should be at 565 yards, not 585. The gopher in front of it is at 562, and the 8" and 4" steel plate to the right are at 564.

The bowling pins are on top of the 350 yard berm, IIRC.

Not that I've ever been there or anything...

I'm glad you corrected the ranges.  I used my laser range finder and came up with close to those distances, but the guys next to me said I was wrong.
 
Manatee Gun Club is a great range to test skills and reloads at varying distances, just wish some of the Range Officers would socialize less and watch what's happening on the range more.

Mitt is the best RO they have there, unfortunately he has to spend a lot of time answering people's gun questions and telling the first-timers that they can't run downrange while we're hot just to pin up a new target.

It's a thankless job, I'm sure.

Hi Guys
 
Any chance of finding another of these scopes? I have been searching locally (South Africa) for one for years now. I need it to complete a build project of one of our 2nd Gen R1 snipers.
 
Any help in this quest much appreciated.

They were never offered as a line item by tasco, they were sold off sheet as contract over runs.  They have not been offered in close to 20 years, so odds of finding one are slim to none.

Mike,
 
That is a rare scope, what other markings does it have on it?
 
What reticle?

Chris, its marked  "Swarovski Optik"  "ZFM 6x42"  The reticle looks very much like the one on the Tasco above. It has a BDC that adjusts from "1" through "8" and lastly says "Made in Austria"  If this is something you want for your collection give me a call and we can work something out.

I know this is an old post, but I have the Tasco 6x44 being discussed here. Just got it back from being maintained. Is it calibrated for 7.64x51? The chooses I have are 7.62x51, 7.62x39, 223.

What I meant to say was: I have a couple weapon choices on which to mount the scope: 7.62x51, 7.62x39 and 223. Thanks for any help.

Was your guess right? Is it calibrated for 7.62 x 51? I just had one reconditioned and have a FAL I can mount it to.
