  Tasco Custom Shop 8-40x scope
« on: October 28, 2008, 18:58:53 PM » by RB
Here's the scope that came with my Air Arms Pro-Target. I have not actually tried it out on anything yet, most likely the best place for it would be whence it came, i.e. back on the PT. Although it is one monster of a scope with a x56 objective, 30mm tube and THAT sunshade - make way! So I don't know really.

These Custom Shop Tascos are 90's classics and bear no relation to today's Tascos. They were made in Japan by Hakko and despite their age are still fetching good prices, especially in the UK.

This particular example has been customised with a large sidewheel and a (large) target turret, to make dialling in a breeze, and with 40x mag the rangefinding should be accurate to the inch.

The black anodising or paintwork (unsure which it is) has worn off some sharp corners, not surprising really, especially on the (one) turret cap. If anyone has a pair of target turret caps (the covers) maybe off a busted scope that they can spare, please let me know. Threading seems standard, unfortunately the scopes that I busted have "low" turrets and caps so are unusable.

Hi RB,

I'm looking all over the internet for such a scope to put on my CZ S200 but no luck  Sad

Found a couple on ebay US but as you know they will not ship over here.

Just in case you want to sell it............. Wink

Hey Kris maybe I will -

I'm over-scoped  Shocked at the moment, so...

Let me assemble the Pro-T in a week or so, so I can decide what to plant on top of it... Wink
