    I know its not a great deal of help but I beleave that these where rebadged tascos (with the xmas tree reticle) sold by Ramsbottoms in the early 90's. I baught one of these in the early 90's (think it was about 93, a 6-24x44) and to be honest it isnt a bad scope, springerproof as I had it on a Mk1 TX200 I had at the time.

    Hope this helps
    Will

    They were distributed at one time by Air Arms.

    The 8-32 is a really classic scope. By today's standards it's old fashioned as it's very long, and it has a gloss black finish.

    The ret is as you describe, like a Christmas tree, and very useful.

    The turrets are unusual being 1/12 click, compared to the 1/4 and 1/8 we are used to these days. Zeroing needs you to be brave and apply a good handful of clicks to see much POI shift.

    They sell second hand for about £120.

    Well you didn't ask me about a zeiler scope did you :rolleyes: Thought you were after a burris :confused:

    Anyway a friend of mine had one of these and I loved it , very clear optically with a good ret and high gloss finish as stated although I am not sure how it would fare if required for hft for instance . What are you going to use it for Nick ?
