Saw a scope at the gun show today marked "Tasco Custom Shop." The scope went from 15x? - 60x which seemed too high for practical use. The guy that had it was telling me that it was a high end competition scope that "could see a flea at 500 yds!"

Now everything I've ever heard about Tasco is that the are the very low-end of the optics world. Having one sent to a "custom shop" seems ridiculous but I've been wrong before.

Big problem is that it's on a rifle I wouldn't mind buying but the guy won't come down enough, if I let him keep the scope. So the scope is pretty much a deal make or breaker.

Anyone know about these? Any idea of what one is worth?

They are quite old and where designed/made to be used mainly as a field target scope for range finding in airgun shooting competitions.
They may have been used for fullbore rifle comps in America but this is what 99% of them in England got used for.
They where about $1000 way back then but if they are like anything else in England they would have only been $500 in America!!
