Repairs for old Tasco 8-40 variable scope?

I have a 8-40 power Tasco scope that needs work, where can i send it. Tasco will not take it because it was made before they were bought out.

Re: Repairs for old Tasco 8-40 variable scope?

If no one else answers with any real knowledge then you can call these people and see if they will.

They specialize in repairing some of the late 1960's and early 1970's scopes such as the Colorado Redfields and a wierd Army sniper scope - Leatherwood.

Iron sight Inc
4814 s. Elwood
Tulsa OK 74107

Their phone numbers are 918 445 2001 or 918 521 7736

I have never used them. I was just researching the Leatherwood scopes and happened across them as a repair shop.

Thanks Bob,
I will give them a try. The scope is too good to just throw away. I had it on a 50cal BMG for a while, the glass is not the best but ok for a test scope or put on my tactical 284 win im building.

Dave,

There is a place in Florida that does the repair work on older tasco optics. The ones before they were bought out by Bushnell or their parent company anyway.

I believe the information is on the bushnell web site so you may want to look there.

Fifty is right, the Bushnell website lists the place in Fla that does repair the Tascos and a couple other brands such as Redfield for a while. I have sent Redfield into them.
