If you're interested in Tasco target scopes, take a lookhere and save some bucks. Oh, and they're new too.

I do not recommend anything made by: Trashco, Simmons, Bushnell, Nikon, Leatherwood (new Leatherwood, not the older ones made in USA GI models), etc. They are made in (put Asian country here...). Remember: you get what you pay for. I have a Bushnell spotting scope. Currently in the box: broken eyepiece (hardly used the scope, no, wasn't dropped). I have a Trashco World Class 3-9x40. Turrents gave out, won't hold zero, etc. Both are total garbage. And yes, Super Sniper is made by Trashco, but doesn't have the name Trashco on it (my guess to hide the fact from the unwary...). I have seen them at gunshows. I am not impressed.

I do have 4 Leupolds (VariX-2's and VariX-3's) and I highly recommend them. 1 I have had for 10 years, no problems. And if I do have a problem, then lifetime guarantee.

In most cases I would agree with the above mentioned. I own and have shot and competed behind the best glass out there. I did purchase a Super Sniper made by Tasco a year ago ( 10x ) on a whim just to try it out. I was impressed enough that I eventually mounted it on my 1000yrd rifle. I still have it there with no regrets.
The 10x I have is as good as my Leupolds as far as glass. The tracking is better than my Leupolds if the turrets were a little less mushy.
I later tried the 16x model and ended up trading it back in as the sight picture was very cloudy.
I can only say I have a 10x and it's dead on and I wouldn't sell it for twice what I paid for it.

My Trashco's have all been junk to not-so-good. The SS that were supose to be 50 proof were not. I had 5 new various models and 3 of them were broken when I took them out of the box. Then Trashco wanted $10.00+ each to repair them. I have a "World Class"(not sure what world???) 8-32X on a 223 varmit rifle and it works(?) ok as long as you do not trun it up above 22X.

NEVER again will I buy ANY Trashco scope. Heck the cheap Simmons I got for a fun gun works better. I have some Weaver scopes on other fun guns that work well.

I will always put Leupolds on hunting/serious guns. With Burris as my second choice. ONLY a Nightforce NXS on my 50's(even better than Leupold for the 50's).

I have 4 Tasco scopes. Two fixed power and two 3x9 40 with mil dot. No problems with them. I'd rather have a Leopold but sometimes I don't have the cash.

Does Tasco even make these anymore? SWFA sells these things without even mentioning Tasco as they did before. I think Tasco had a USN contract for the Super Sniper. After that fell through, SWFA picked them up. Someone may want to contact SWFA for the whole story though.
The Tasco Super Sniper I got to play with was a clean and ergo as any of my Leupolds, Burris Black Diamonds, and U.S. Optics scopes. I'm not really sure about recoil durability, as it was mounted on a 24" barreled AR15. Seemed nice enough for the money, though.

Tasco does manufacture the SS but under contract with SWFA only.

Deciding what power to get depends on what you're going to do with it. Are you plinking at 50-100yrds or are you shooting at 800? Applications dictate what to get- I wouldn't go with a 12-24X50 if you're doing room clearing with an M4, but you wouldn't want a 4x tasco on a Rem700 if you're going for 800yrd shots.

my high power rifle range is sadly only about a 100 yards, so i am not real sure what kind of scope power to get? i was thinking 6x, 8x or even 10x?

If it is a hunting rifle try a 3X9X40 or a 3.5X10 non AO Leupold
If it is a target range gun then a good 10X or 16X or a variable would be a good choice.

Do not do as a friend did and put a 18X60 of some POS brand on a hunting gun.I call it the Hubble scope and it has 15 adjustments on it also. It takes him 30 minuites to get off a shot. Damn glad the pronghorns will wait(sometimes).

the scope would be for my heavy barrel flat top AR-15. shooting mostly 100 yards for fun. since i put the removeable carry handle iron sights back on for service rifle comps. so i am thinking about a leupold or older burris 6x,8x,10x??

Since you're only shooting at realatively short range (100yrds), I'd go with a 4x or 6x in fixed power, but there's a lot to be said about variable powers too. A 3-9x variable would be nice, so you can always crank it up if you get out in the open or would like a closer look at the target. Too many people get carried away with high magnification and it screws up their shooting.

Of course, I've got a nice scope for sale on the forum if you'd like... (shameless plug!)

Tasco SS 10x will last in 338 Lapua Magnum/ Sako TRG-42:

150-200 shots fired whith muzzle brake
200-300 shots fired whith BR T8M full size sound supressor

My friend came in to this conclusion after 5-6 broken SS -scopes.
They never lasted end of warranty time...
