Two questions:  1.How good are the simmons whitetail classic and the .44 Mag?  I'm scoping a heavy barrel H&R .223, hence the need for the low priced scope ($170 gun).

  2. Is there anywhere I can send a Tasco scope to be repaired that isn't covered under their new warranty policy.  It's currently on the H&R and won't hold a zero worth anything.  If not, is a 6-24 way too much for a .22lr Savage.

 

Thanks, Jimmy.

 The shipping  cost for the Tasco is more then the scope is worth....I've had good luck with BSA scopes....

I have a Tasco Varmint 6-24x scope that has worked well for about 5 years now.  Granted, I have not used the rifle it is mounted to much and when used it was taken careful to the range then home.  It was originally mounted to a Howa 243 Win.  It eventually found itself on a Winchester Heavy Varmint rifle in 243 Win.  I have not had any problems with the scope, but find its optics quality...marginal.

I recently added another rifle and tried a Simmons ATV 4.5-14x Scope on the recommendation of my dealer/gunsmith.  I have been impressed with its performance and the quality of the optics.  He said it was a "special edition" scope, carried by one of his distributors but not a Simmons cataloged item.  Think I'll try one of their Master Series scopes next.

pass up the BSA, they're more porblems than tasco.

 

check out the bushnell banner, legacy, and trophy line, they're all nice scopes for the $$, and you wont have to worry about the scope failing.

 

check out SWFA's used scope site www.samplelist.com

 

they probably have something ont here that fits yoru bill, and wallet

Thanks for the responses.  I do like the bushnell banner 6-24 I saw at a local shop, and am thinking about it for a future savage build up.  IF I replace the current tasco, the H&R will probably be wearing a Simmons whitetail Classic.  I currently have a Simmons variable on a .22 and it suits me well.
