Huge waste of money!

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, IL Written on September 10, 2011
Recticle fell apart and black flakes now cover the viewing area after the first shot on an AR-10, called optics planet to return the scope, they said they could not take it back because I had tried to use it LOL! I then called Barska and they said if its defective within 30 days to return to the dealer for a replacement, what a joke, I now have to wait 30 days to return to Barska, THANKS optic planet!
Pros: none
Cons: everything...

I'll give Barska a try

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on April 22, 2011
I like the scope. It is comfortable to use and has some great adjustability. The adjustment knobs are easy to use. That being said, the only issue I have is that the windage knob seems to be mismarked. It is labeled with "UP" as the elevation knob. It should be labeled with a "left or right" direction indicator. I was initially worried but once I figured out which way to go it worked well.
Pros: Great features and adjustability
Cons: The windage adjustment knob is mismarked....

Excellent For The $

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, MO Written on April 19, 2011
Great scope for the $! The distortion commented on by others (and accuracy) is most likely caused by not adjusting the AO lens for the distance. At hi mag I adj the focus lens for a nice clear view. The view gets a bit grayed out at high mag, but I can still shoot just after the sun goes down. Wish it had a mildot reticle. At hi mag your eye has to be in just the right spot, but most are this way.
Pros: Clear, Return to 0, Value
Cons: Small Eye Relief Window, No Mildot...
Would recommend: Yes

Mine works wonderfully

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, OR Written on April 10, 2011
The range where I shoot, most frequently, has a limit of 219 yeards. The scope zero'd easily once I had a proper bench to use for sighting. Zoom'd in at 32X the picture is pretty good. I won't be taking any long distance shots for now so I am happy shooting at 200 yards. The illiminated red dot feature is nice, especially with the variable intensity. I have not needed to use it yet, but nice to know the feature is there if I need it. I think the rings I received are ok. I might upgrade some day, however, I am limited on how well I shoot so the rings are the last thing I would change. I have not noticed any creep on it from shooting 127 rounds.

My shooting buddy likes it and wants one for his varmint gun. I used a gift cert and the scope only cost me a total of $65.00. I'm very happy with it.
Pros: Red dot intensity is variable, easy to set-up, makes the neighbors jealous, clear picture while at 32X
Cons: huge (but i knew that when I bought it), threads on the knob caps are super fine and had one near cross thread issue. ...

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on November 27, 2010
cannot recommend it to anyone. Impossible to compete in FT-Class or BR, very poor quality of vision, from 10 x is formed as a white mist to 32 increases impossible to perform a good shot. Tested 100mts. 308W and 22Lr. Very poor quality. If you could return to the store.

Pros: None

Barska Excavator-don't waste your time

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, FL Written on February 28, 2008
I bought this scope to have a comparison with the BSA Platinum. Neither scope met my expectations. You will only get what you pay for when it comes to optics. Regardless of what the marketing says, these are not good scopes, even for the money.
Pros: Price, features
Cons: cloudy at high magnification, small field of view...
