    Just acquired one of these, it has underneath Deben on it. On the eye bell part it states Customshop.
    What is it, or did one make the scope for the other ?
    Bit confused as to what make it is, thought I read somewhere, Customshop scopes were made by Hakko.
    Can any one shed any light on it. Thanks.

    The original Tasco customshops were 10-40x56. They were then released with the 10-50x56 and the 10-60x56 versions by Hakko/Deben. You don’t see many about as the glass/optics were quite bad. But still okay to use for lower magnification depending on what your using it for

    Deben imported Tasco branded scopes to the UK prior to branding their scopes Deben and, later still, Hawke.

    Optical quality on the Custom Shop scopes can be a little bit variable but the Deben DMP branded ones all seem okay. Great rangefinders.

    Thanks for the replys guys, so Hakko made, branded by Deben and Customshop. Optics seem very good, as good as my Nikko. Not had chance to use properly yet but, snaps in well in my short garden. Condition is mint no marks anywhere and no backlash felt in side wheel. will try and set up next time I get down to the club. :cool:
