I am new here and have read alot of the posts. I just purchased a Tasco world class 3-9x40 scope.  I have had cheap Tasco scopes for years and haven't had any problems , the last one I had on a 270 and shot many rounds throught it and has been shipped 3 times and never had to re zero, I did re varify though.  That scope was purchased in 1990 and I just recently sold the rifle and the scope. My question is, any comments on the Tasco world class scopes today, it just has been mounted on 300 wby mag and bore sighted. I wanted to get some comments before I went out and sighted it in.

hmmm... im not sure if when bushnell took over tasco, if they changed them to a diff factory, but if they're still made in japan, i doubt it will last very long on a 300 wby, the new ones arent like they used to be.

sgtbpm, Cory might be right.  I used to use Tasco religiously (back in the old days).  I now have a couple of  Titan's in 3-9x42 and 3-12x52 (both in 30 mm tubes) and they are awesome, probably the best bang for the buck.  F.Y.I., I also have Swarovski, Bushnell 4200's, Pentax Lightseekers, Leupolds and Burris.  Obviously, the Swarovski's are in a league of their own when compared against what I've just mentioned............but not by a whole lot!  If you compare the Titan's against the remainder, you will be impressed!  The Titan series (30mm anyway) are seriously tough, probably right up there with the Burris Black Diamonds!

The problem is they keep moving from factory to factory.  If it says made in China then it is not a very high good scope.  If it says made in Japan it is a good scope.  You can't just say if its a World Class then its good because of them switching around so much.
