I have 2 Tasco 3-9X40 scopes that I bought in the early 70's that were made in Japan. Over time they have been used on many different centerfire rifles including at present 2 Ruger #1's 1 in 45/70 the other on a 458 Winchester and are still going strong.
On the other hand my brother bought 2 of the OP's Tasco 6.5-24X42 Mil Dot Varmint scopes from Midway both failed the same way (would not hold zero) from the get go. Sent them back to Bushnell (who now services them) and asked for an upgrade.
They offered him a very generous upgrade to one of their Elite models which he took.
