    Edgar brothers 3-9x50 1999

    Hi
    Just got my first rifle .22 Hornet, it came with a Edgar brothers 3-9x50 scope.

    Edger's do two ranges of scope, I had an Opti Mate 2-12x52, nice glass for the money.
    Opti Mate is the better range, can't remember what the lower price ones were called, Opto Two rings a bell ?

    I have an edgar brothers scope on my .22, I cant remember the exact model but maybe a 6x42?

    Anyhow, it does the job just fine, I have had no complaints with it and the glass is pretty clear, better than the tasco I had on previously.

    Here's a review to reassure you. These are no longer offered by Edgar Bros. who've gone over to Jap. made Weaver series. I'm not sure that's a step forward.

    I replaced the Leupold M8 6x42 on my CZ .223 with an acquired Optimate 2.5-10x44. It's just as good to 150 yards in all light conditions in my opinion, so should work well on your Hornet. It's better than air rifle 'scopes such as the Hawke, etc.
    If I'm going to be accused of it then it's just as well I did it.

    David,

    It will depend on the vintage of the Tasco. Their earlier Japanese made ones were quite good and optically good. The later stuff is iffy to say the least. Tasco actually made some very good optics at one time. They also made various quality ranges and one has to bear in mind which range one has.
