Default Tasco scope

The only Tasco scope I own failed recently on my TC Firehawk. I sent it in hoping they would repair it. It seems that Bushnell now owns the Tasco name and wouldn't repair/replace it under warrenty. I did receive a discount offer for a Bushnell purchase.

Hmm. Tasco's are still for sale at walmart. That is kind of crappy to still have product for sale but not honor the warranty

I purchased the scope many yrs ago and Tasco has changed ownership a couple of times. I just thought I had a small chance at repairs...oh well it was a $100.00 World Class scope and thats all I got. I guess that figures somewhere about 6.6-7.5 $/per year of use.

what was the original warrenty period? you may have better luck if you speak t amanager and explain to them how your a loyal customer and a moderator at a deer hunting forum with a large following they may do it just to avoid bad press
Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky
