Can anyone tell me who services and repairs Tasco scopes? Is the lifetime or the limited warranty still honored? I know that Bushnell has bought Tasco and now makes some scopes with the Tasco name. But I don't know if Bushnell does the repair work on the old Tasco scopes. Any help is appreciated. Thank you. 8)

Tasco No Fault Warranty

From an insert in a Tasco World Class scope box:

" If this product is ever damaged and fails to operate at any time during your lifetime, Tasco will repair or replace it without charge.* "

"This warranty is limited to the original purchaser and is not transferable. This warranty applies only to products purchased in the United States of America."

"Should it become necessary to repair or replace your Tasco product, package the unit carefully and return it prepaid to:

The Tasco Service Center

Include your name and address, a brief note explaining the defect and a check or money order for $10.00 to cover inspection, shipping and handling. The unit will be either repaired or replaced at the discretion of the warrantor.

Personally, I have never used the warranty.... never needed it
my small arms arsenal includes 6 Tasco scopes, World Class or World Class Plus

Bushnell bought tasco and............

We were told yup we bought them and nope we dont warranty them

When we complained they said true they HAD A LIFETIME WARRANTY, but Tasco is no longer and we dont service them under warranty

In a nut shell we were told that we are S.O.L.

but they can and will fix for $25 for our problem (semi self induced but they did not indicate that it was our fault)


I dont have the address handy but I know my uncle sent it to FL

Jamie

PS I will never own a Tasco again, I have help ruin too many besides this last one, but mast were my fault ( my air guns eat scopes for lunch)

tasco scopes

.45 Kimber, Air guns will eat scopes because air guns recoil foward not backwards. Air gun scopes have lock rings on both sides of the lens to keep the lens in place. I've used Tasco scopes for many years, and for the most part they have held up good for me. I've sent a few back for repair. The cross hairs rotating and occasionally fogging up in really wet weather (that is the problem I have now), were the main problems. If you can find the address to sent the scopes for repair please post it here. I'll keep checking back here, or email it to me. Thanks. Joe 8)

Bushnell problem..

Sounds like Bushnell is the problem rather than Tasco. I've had only good dealings with Tasco and other manufacturers of sporting equipment. If Bushnell won't take care of issues with the Tasco Scopes I for one will shop elsewhere. I don't need Bushnell. They need ME.

tucoblue and joe kool

I agree with you Bushnell needs us not the other way around

Joe I will find that address for you and post it

And yes I found out the hard way about the airguns we have been shooting them for 20+ years and I finally found a few good airgun scopes that weren't more then the dang guns

.45 Kimber, thanks for taking the time to look up this information and post it. I didn't have any idea of where to start to looking for this address. I'm sure you helped out a lot of other people that have tasco scopes in need of repair. Joe :agree: 8)
