Good suggestion, I've also gotten a used, more expensive Nikon Buckmaster scope this way.
I bet that Tasco says it was made in Japan by the sound of the glass you're describing. Those are some very good, tough scopes. Tasco 3-9, Redfield "Wideview", Weaver K-4 or V-9(?), and Bushnell "SuperChief"(?) scopes were very popular back in my day on hunting rifles, and are still very good scopes today if you can find them and their seals are still intact, with no loss of gas. However, the glass coatings on Today's cheapest scopes are better than Yesterday's higher end scopes if you think about it, but those older scopes are still good scopes.

I use a 4x fixed power scope. I have no problems hitting the attached target at 50 yards. In fact, to challenge myself I often shoot it at 70 yards. I don't have a bench. My idea of a bench is shooting from a standing position using a tree for a rest. I have a box stock 10/22 with a cheap scope (Simmons 22 mag 4x32), a 25 shot magazine and a muzzle brake. The muzzle brake only serves to keep the barrel from getting stuffed with dirt. When I target shoot I do the best I can to emulate hunting.

Edit: the target is larger than in the image. I print targets out on regular 8.5" x 11" printer paper.
