I have a Marlin semi-automatic .22 with a Tasco 4x scope mounted on it. I have to resight it constantly, and I can never seem to remember which way to turn the adjustment.

Kinda sez it all...get almost ANY other MFR's scope...it will be better.
Inexpensive - Centerpoints at walmart...some Simmons, some Bushnell, etc...sub-$100 buys.
Midrange - Redfield...some Simmons/Bushnell/etc...
Expensive - Nikon/Weaver/Leupold...anything that makes yer butt clench to think of letting go of more cash than you spent on the rifle...
or in some cases...5+ times what you paid for the rifle
TASCO scopes are generally good for beating squirrels to death with when you throw them accuratly
I have Norinco jw15 bolt action with warne 7.3/22 rings and a barska hot magnum 6-18x40 AO scope. I love he BDC on it! We set up steel plates at 86 yds 138yds 187 yds and 281yds. I wasn't able to hit the 281. But the other 3 Plates I was able to repeatedly dial back and forth between them and it kept zero. Put a big smile on my face!
Nothing left to do but smile, smile, smile.....
Took a chance on a Redhead Pursuit 2x7. Has held zero so far but glass is probably not as good and clear as a top end naturally. Paid $60 or $70 about 3 years back. hope quality is decent overall. Probably made by Bushnell. Hate to buy cheap but sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do.
The search for the "perfect scope", at least for your own use can be frustrating. I went through 4 before finally getting the 'perfect scope' for my use. On my new CZ 452 Lux 22mag. I went through first a RV7, then a RV9, a 3x9x40 Weaver, and a Sightron SII 3x9x40, ( GREAT SCOPE ), then I got a Vortex Diamondback 4X12X40. The " Cat's meow", for my use, late season squirrels 60 to 100, yotes to 125, and whistlepigs out to 150. BRIGHT, CLEAR, and great turrets. One thing about buying high quality scopes, even if you decide they aren't what you want, you can resell them and not lose any money. I've got 3 scopes that I've had on at least a dozen rifles. You may buy and trade guns, but get a great scope and you'll keep it forever ! Buy once, cry once ! I've got a friend who never spent more than 100 on any scope for the last 20 years. He bought a Rem. 69A with a 3X9 lupy on it at the gunshow last month. NOW.... he sees, what his eyes have been missing !!!
I got a simmons recently for my sks,. I also have several 2x7x32 ler scopes for mosin scout rifles. My savage 6A .22 / 22lr auto has a bsa classic 3x9x40 on it. Its sighted in at 125 yards, and will ring the gong at 400 w/o a problem.
Sometimes you can have trouble with any scope. I was afraid of being laughed at for buying a medium priced scope but was told some of the higher priced ones can have problems also. If this Redhead does fail me I will let all know.
