I got a feeling I'm about to get pelted with rotten eggs but here goes

Does a Tasco Euro Class 3-9x44 have any monetary value ? , if so , how much ?

Mike

Anywhere from $50 and up, depending on how badly someone wants the scope. There actually pretty good scopes, just not much support for them anymore.

Hawker,

Tasco came out with the "Euro Class" scopes about 20 years ago. Nothing new, nothing trendy here.

They sell to the European marktet just like any other optics brand ,so they designed a scope for that market.

The Japanese made "EuroClass" scopes were always highly thought of by many of their owners..They were a decent scope for the coin If you like the Euro Style format.

I have had a 1.5-6 Euro Class on my .30-06 for over 20 years. Never a problem. The scope is really heavy and really bright. I can see well enough to shoot well after legal light. I set the gun up as a thick woods, low light setup and it works well. I have never had to re-zero the scope except for changing ammo.

I have a 3-12x 52 on my 30-06, been there for at least 24 years, never a problem.

i agree..$50-$125 when i was looking
had the 3-12 also..heavy and not enough eye relief for me on a .340, but in a side by side, was good for about 10 minutes longer then a vari x III 3.5-10x40 at dusk ..good glass in those

Maybe $75? The 30mm tube will appeal more to some people. Don't know about the 3-9, but in the 80's I had a 3-12 on a MIV and it was just ok. For a truck gun I liked having that power range with nonadjustable objective. Except at about 200yds it started getting a little out of focus, like it was set for a shorter distance.

Really good glass (for the price), and really heavy.

They were reported to have been made by Hakko. That is a good recommendation for owning one.
