Tasco Rimfire Series Reticle .22 Riflescope Review
Like the other affordable scopes in this list, this 22 rifle scope won’t blow you away with its range.
You can hit most targets that are up to 50 yards from you, but accuracy struggles past that mark. Still, it’s a reliable scope that you can use for small game hunting and plinking.Despite not being the best when it comes to range and optic quality, there are lots of redeeming qualities of this rimfire scope. One is that this scope is very easy to sight in.
You should be able to find your zero point very easily. And it has scope rings included in the package, which translates to a few dollars saved on your part.
Again, this scope may not satisfy the discriminating hunter but for casual hunter and shooter, the optic quality of this scope should suffice. The lenses are magenta coated which can reduce reflection and glare.
The glass is clear and can deliver clear images, especially when there’s enough lighting. But during low lighting conditions this scope may not give good images.
This 22 rifle scope features a full sized, one-inch advanced monotube construction. It has rings that are designed to attach to standard .22 bases. It measures 14 inches in length, with a weight of 11.4 ounces.
With its weight, it won’t really make your rifle heavier. The nice matte finish should also make your weapon more attractive.
Easy to Use
Being an entry-level scope, this unit won’t pose a lot of problems even for novice shooters. For starters, it is incredibly easy to sight in.
According to most reviewers on Amazon.com, they are able to find the zero very easily thanks to the adjustment points located on the side and top of the scope. It also doesn’t hurt that this scope is very easy to mount on .22 rifles.
3 to 9x magnification
This is a 22 rifle scope that is very versatile if we talk about magnification. It can be used for short to medium range shooting at 3x magnification, and even long range shooting with its maximum 9x magnification.
50 yard parallax setting
