Question about Tasco EXP-1042 (10x42mm) WP
Talcum powder solution does not work, it will become gooey again. I have two of the scopes same problem on both. The coating can be removed with WD-40. Do not spray directly on to the scope. Spray a paper towel and gently wipe the goo from the scope. It takes a lot of towels but the end result is a scope the looks the same but with out the gooey coating.
The 3-9 scope I have recently stopped focusing at greater than 80 yards and I'm sending it back for repairs. It will be interesting to see how that goes.
I have begun switching to Leupold scopes for all of my rifles and pistols. Really too bad as I thought the Tasco EXP was great when it first arrived. I just don't have the time to fool with a product that should work.

Dust with fine Talcum powder, ie baby powder. Distrubute powder over rubber and it will harden up the rubber, let sit and gently rub in. After a couple of minutes dust off excess. repeat if required.

Unfortunately this sounds like the scope coating was exposed to some petroleum based product.
Hand or Suntan lotions, bug repellants or certain types of cleaning solutions.. even the vapors from them can cause rubber to destabilize.
