I recently bought this scope for my Marlin 22 bolt rifle. To start, it was difficult to mount. The opening for the bolt left limited space where a scope could be attached. And with the mounts as low as they are, it became a problem fitting it with the rear sight. An extra 1/16" in height would have made it easier. So, I was forced to mount it a little forward from where I would have liked it. But, that was going to be OK I was able to compensate. I took it to the range, and after a few adjustments, I had it right on target. I placed nine 1" round dots @ 25 yards, loaded my clip with three rounds, and took my shots. I then repeated twice for a total of nine shots. Eight hits. If this had been squirrels, instead of stickers, I would consider that a good day. So, everything seemed fine. Until the next time I went to the range. I decided to try five different types of .22lr ammo in my gun to see which I liked best. I quickly narrowed it down to what I planned on using this hunting season (CCI mini-mags if it matters). But, now I had a couple of hundred rounds of various ammo that I wasn't going to use, so I decided to use it up. After about 200 rounds, the inside optics let go on the scope. Now, I have a piece of glass laying sideways in my scope. OK,. 200 rounds might be a lot for a high powered rifle, but this was a .22. There's not a lot of kick. And, this is a Tasco, I expected it would hold up for at least a couple of hunting seasons. I guess I was wrong.
