When I was 15 I had mowed yards and scrimped, saved, and finally put together enough money to buy a muzzleloader. It was a much more realistic goal than a bolt rifle, and I ended up going super cheap and bought a Brolin Arms 50cal in-line rifle mainly because it was A. Cheap, and B. Had a wood stock. It was garbage, not very accurate and occasionally dropped the striker when the safety was taken off. It went under the chop saw after a year or two of tinkering with the trigger trying to make it reliable. Part of the deal in trying to get the stupid thing to hit was that I bought a cheap fixed 4 power scope to go on top of it. The scope was an improvement but it was not much of one. In the 20 years following that scope has been on probably 25 different rifles. It was used to see if guns were worthy of glass or not, and often used just to see if I liked something I had traded for or not. It has been on at least 3 different muzzleloaders, a dozen centerfire rifles, and several rim fires. It even got stuck on top of a ruger charger for a few days to see how accurate the charger could be, but it was really awkward to use that way. the scope, a lowly Tasco Pronghorn fixed 4x32 In its last few shots i was walking it in towards being sighted in, but with each shot through the old 30 carbine Marlin 62, the picture got more and more blurry. It’s a sad day, but at a dollar a year I think I got my money’s worth. The scope probably had 15000 or more rounds of experience the bulk of which being 22lr through a 10/22, a 9mm hi point 995, and a bunch of 223 and 5.45x39 on a couple AR uppers. A lot of people disparage Tasco, but the Pronghorn and most of the World Class lines were well worth the money. The image at the top shows the scope in its final stage of life. It’s on the rifle on the left.
