I have not a chance to extensively wring out the scope althoug I have a few comments.
1 The rings supplied are not very useful. If you are not used to (or do not have ) iron sites then what is the point of a look through rings set.
2. Barska should limit the the rheostat for the reticle. Above 6 or seven the cross-hairs are too bright.
30 The Heavy thick edges of the reticle should be shortened so that there are more windage and elevation dots for the user to exploit.
3) The dot indicating POWER (X) and mid range every focus should be lines, particularly for the ocular focus. You can't see the index dot with SCOPE COVERS.
4) Barska should offer a choice of reticle types for this model and price point.
1) Exit pupil is spot on and clear
2) Scope returns to zero ever time.
3) Well constrtuct and wit the proper mount sight box is right on the spot all the time.
I have not done a 'long' zero reticle test:
1) Zero at 100 yds
2 Fire group (5) at 100 yds, then dial in 10 MOA.
3) Dial in 10 more MOA (20 MOA) and fire 5 shot group.
4) Dial in 10 more MOA (30 MOA) and fire 5 shot group.
Then MEASURE the distance between group centers for each vertical increase. Odds are the more vertical you dial in the greater the non-linearity of the scope. AT 100 yds 10 MOA may get you 2.5" for example, however at 30 MOA the vertical is 7.65 MOA NOT 8.5 MOA. You must determine correction factor.
This is and excellent test of the scopes vertical linearity. Most scop...
