>>>BEFORES and AFTERS<<<( Part 1)
      #6015733 - 08/09/13 12:34 PM Attachment (65 downloads)

We all seem to like PICTURES, so here we go. Look what came yesterday, another Tasco to restore, a 7te-5. Not as ruff as the 7t Tasco I just finished, but looks fun to restore. It is missing the Barlow, Porro prism, and the .965 visual back, but I was able to fabricate one from some spare parts.

That's a great looking mount. Excellent job. These mounts were well engineered for the 60mm scopes. They are far nicer to use than the 76mm sized version.
