    Heads-up. Scope bargain!

    Optics warehouse are having a flash sale on Tasco World Class 8x50's. It's the 30/30 ret, but at 16.50 each you can't go wrong!

    Just bought one, having picked up the good vibes on FB. I bought one of the Tasco 3-9x40's previously and thought that was a steal at twice the price of this one!!

    Bargain price but parallax fixed at 50 yards isn't ideal for air rifles or for use with NV. Yes that's right, i want my cake and i want to eat it
    Good luck to those who can make use of a bargain scope though

    It's easy enough to re parallax to 25-30 yards, but it still wouldn't be much cop for NV.

    They're cheap because they are crap. Bought one a couple of months ago, first time out when I tried to zero it the whole left-right adjuster totally unscrewed from the body as the cap was stuck to the adjuster. Eventually managed to separate them, the threads were dog rough and had galled. Replaced the adjuster back into the main body using threadlock to fix it solid. Tried to zero it but it was useless and wouldn't hold it for more than a few shots even with the parallax adjusted down to 25/30 yards which is dead easy to do. Tried it again a few days later with the same result and it went in the bin.
    I used to be indecisive but now I'm not quite so sure.

    I've had a new 150 scope fall apart in my hands as I took it from the box, and I've seen plenty of folks who've received theirs and are happy, I wouldn't panic just yet.

    The 150 scope I had that fell apart was a Hawke. Utter shi'ite!
