I have a young friend becoming interested in rifles and stuff. He has reasonable airgun, with a cheap Chinese scope (like $1.99 thing!!!). I have a Tasco 1,5-5x20 lying around from my stupid days. Will this work on an airgun or will the forward recoil destroy it??

Any help on this please!

probably will destroy it unless it was made for airguns.

 

i would buy a 20-30 airgun scope and call it a day.

 

good luck.

Thanks for response. No it was not made for an airgun. Used it on my 30-06. The scope is lying in my gunsafe and I will never use it again. Just thought I could put it to use. I read somewhere that airguns kill a normal scope, so that is why I am asking for help/opinions.

Just try it anyway. Tasco  has a lifetime warranty on all their scopes.

If it breaks send it in for repairs then spend the 20-30 on an airgun scope.

Nothing to lose but a few $$ on postage

 

"...all Tasco riflescopes..... are 100% waterproof/fogproof/shockproof. Backed by a Limited Lifetime Warranty."

I would try it anyway as well. The worst that could happen is you lose something you werent using in the first place. You also get the amusement of seeing what a spring piston air rifle can do to a scope....assuming its powerful enough. The little Bushnell Sportsman air rifle/rimfire scopes do well with the spring piston rifles and they arent expensive at all.
