View Full Version : Tasco rubber armor scope, any info?
December 26, 2005, 12:12
I found a Tasco scope at a local gun shop. I got it for a song, but there seems to be no information on the tasco web site on this model. They must not make it any more.
What I need to know is if anyone knows where to get rings for it?
It seems to be an odd size, as 1inch rings are too small, and 30 mm rings are too big.
This scope seems to be a 1 inch tube covered by a rubber cover. It measures aprox. 1.130" across the high spots. or 28.72mm
Any info would be helpful.

Thanks, It looks just like the scope in the picture of their rings on the website.
Does anyone have nay experience with these scopes? Are they any good?
What kind of reputation does leapers have?

Except for their discontinued-and-sold-rights-to-SWFA SuperSniper scopes, you won't catch me with any Tasco products. Or Leapers (Chinese cheapy), either. Or Simmons, BSA, etc. I've tried scopes and binocs. They just don't last with genuine field use. They don't make the long-term, buddy.
My Savage Mk II .22LR wore a Simmons 4x32... after a while, the POI changed with every shot. My brother's Simmons 3-9x44 on his Ruger 7mag... the reticle canted about 30 degrees and stuck there. My other brother's Simmons scope on his Savage 16FSS is permanently out of focus. Hasn't been replaced yet.
I have one more brother, but his sole Tasco hasn't gone TU. My sister doesn't own her own rifle. Yet.

The rubber armored tasco I have came with a special set of rings. The rings have lands and grooves that match the hills and valleys of the rubber on the scope.
This scope worked great on my daughters .22. The fine duplex crosshairs aided in accuracy. As she outgrew the .22 and moved up to the AR we soon found out that this scope requires a little TLC when zeroing. We had to fire a group, adjust up 6 down 2, fire another group to allow it to shift in, fire another group for zero, then adjust again and repeat. Once it shifted and I finally got it zeroed, it held fairly well. I doubt it will withstand anything more than an AR though.
