Cheap Cheap Cheap, that’s sound of Barska optics make
When I received the scope it looked ok. First thing, switch between color and power settings on crosshairs… Wait what’s this? It shows the crosshairs should be lit up green according to the switch but the red led is on. Ok now if I switch to where the red LED is supposed to be on the green one lights up. I took the switch/battery compartment apart and found a small circular circuit board underneath the battery, spun it around 180 degrees and put it back together so now the right LED lights up when matched to the switch indicators but the brightness setting is backwards…
The mounts are weak metal, I wont call them steel as steel is harder, after tightening them up on the rail I found that the clasp on each mount bent out but at least the screws didn’t strip this time.
I’ve purchased some other Barska optics and after repeated disappointments have decided Basrka is simply the “Cheapest of the cheap Chinese stuff”.
Do yourself a favor and spend a little more to get something that will last.
I’ve since found that this scope is ok for an air gun but it will not hold zero on anything ballistic, even a .22 calibre rifle.
