I'm worthless on that particular scope , but I'd take a Japan model any day before China crap. I'm sure other opinions shall be forthcoming. BTW, welcome! Excellent

Dutchman,   Your scope won't bring much more than $25 plus or minus in my experience. However I will share that I have an old Japan tasco I've had for at least 30 years . It is a compact little scope and it has sat on my 22 bolt for all those years and I haven't touched the adjustments since it was mounted. Took it out a couple of weeks ago and was shooting a 4" buffalo swinger at 100yds just like always. Keep your scope,if you are like me and trade every now and then it will come in handy when you get a new rifle and are itching to shoot but don't have a scope yet. I have another old tasco 4x and it has served in this temporary capacity on numerous rifles and is hanging right in there.

I'd think $25 would be at the high end of things, but that's just my opinion. The ones that seem to go for quite a bit more are the made in Japan ones that are higher powers like 6-24, or 4-16, 8-32, etc. They seem to bring anywhere from $70-150 depending on the day. I've seen a couple go for close to $150, but I've seen a lot more bring $70-90. So in all reality, they don't even go for that much considering what they are and what they probably cost new. They just go for more than the $50 a new one would sell for used.

I´ll chime in regarding the necessity of a back-up scope (in fact I have two)

1) Bushnell Banner 4x32, made in Japan, similar quality to the japanese Tasco´s 
2) Weaver V9 Microtrac, mechanically still good.
 
Both scopes are more a necessity for my friends, that ever so often make stupid decisions regarding scopes.Wink

I agree that a backup scope is handy. I recently just sold my extra Prostaff which was my extra scope, and I'm honestly kind of regretting it as I don't have a backup scope now.
