Good value, but...

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on June 13, 2011
Purchased Barska Electro sight with multi-reticle in March.

I mounted this on my Remington 870 and sighted it using a laser boresighter. For the most part, it is a fantastic buy for the money. It mounted easily to the rail, a and sighted easy. It made my target a lot easier to see - especially since I could keep both eyes open. The brightness switch worked great, and in low light the #1 setting was perfect. In sunlight, I had no trouble seeing the reticle on #4. The sight has 4 different reticle settings, a 3 & 6 MOA dot, a 3 MOA dot in a circle and a cross. When switching between reticles, you have to be careful that that you get the switch lined up. The stops on the switch are mushy at best. You can feel the centers of the stops, they just aren't as positive as they should be.
Once set, the sight held zero quite well, even after removing and remounting. I fed the 870 2.75" 00 Buck, 3" 00 Buck, Remington Rifled 1 oz slugs and Winchester Super X 1 oz slugs. It wasn't until the Win super X (1600+ fps) that I encountered a problem. After about 6 rounds, I noticed I couldn't see the reticle. The reason was that the lens was sitting on the shooting bench. I was able to superglue the lens & retainer back in, but haven't tried it since the repair.

Pros:
Inexpensive red dot for most small bore firearms, paint markers and air-soft
Held zero well, until it failed
Fits picatinny rails

Cons:
Cannot withstand the recoil of large bore firearms
Metric screws and adj...

Not good in bright light conditions

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, NV Written on July 24, 2010
I live in Nevada and took this to the range. Bright sunny day. I thought the battery was dead, but it was just that I could not see the reticle in the bright sunlight.
Pros: Low price
Cons: Can't see the reticle in bright sunlight...
Would recommend: No

Save Your Money

Do not make the same mistake I did. I purchased this for my AR15 and took it out for the first time yesterday. I tried to zero and it would change after each shot (the recoil from the AR15 kept changing the position of the recticle). After 50rds, I gave up. When I took it off the picatinny rail, the entire assembly was already coming apart from the recoil.

In short, I strongly discourage anyone with an AR15 from buying this item. The recoil from the AR15 tore it up (and the recoil from an AR is quite inconsequential).
Pros: Easy to install and it looks nice
Cons: Unfortunately, it does not hold zero and it is not a robust design...
Would recommend: No

good bang 4 the buck

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, NY Written on July 27, 2008
i noticed that the rear screw was just long enough without being mounted. when mounted on my rail the screw didnt catch enough "MEAT" so it stripped. Easy Fix
went to local hardware store picked up a longer screw works great!
Pros: excellent visibility
Cons: battery dies fairly quick...

Barska Multi-reticle Red Dot Sight

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, TX Written on June 29, 2008
Good red dot sight for the money. Easy set up. You have to re-zero when you change reticles, but I knew that from other reviews. I just picked a reticle and plan to only use that one....

Well made red dot!

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, CA Written on May 2, 2008
This red dot easily compares to the more expensive ones in quality by offering several reticles, brightness adjustment, and small size. Be careful of battery drain, as this sight does use batteries at a decent rate. Fantastic and versatile product!
Pros: Multiple reticles and ease of use
Cons: Eats batteries somewhat quickly...

Leveling screw broke- Returned it

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, TX Written on April 25, 2008
Poor qualtiy. When I got it out of the box I thought it was a pretty nice red dot. Upon looking at it closer, it was canted to one side. The up/down screw broke when I tried to zero it. Cheap Chinese junk....The design was good, but the components are cheap.
Pros: Nice design
Cons: Cheaply made-low quality components...

Useable and inexpensive

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, CA Written on December 29, 2007
When I bought a SU-16 I wanted a red dot that wouldn't break the bank so I tried the Barska AC10632. It's not an OKO but it is functional. It appears to be well constructed and rugged. It's easy to mount and set up. The rheostat knob is easy to turn and the brightness range is enough to cover moonlight thru bright daylight. Once sighted in it holds zero and switching between reticles is easy.

A few suggestion that would make it a better sight.

1. A clearly marked off position. It is too easy to inadvertently leave this sight on after a day at the range. I painted white stripes on the body and knob that line up in the off position.

2. A "finder" for the reticle. This is important when using a red dot on a handgun. I tried the Barska on a Beretta Neos and it really slows down sighting when I have to hunt for the the dot. The OKO has a notch at the rear and a little tab at the bottom of the lens ring that together act like a regular sight. This makes it very easy to align a handgun so I can see the dot immediately. It also acts as a fixed sight. Barska might consider some similar aid.

3. Better alignment between different reticles. I found the 10 MOA and circle-dot shot the same place and the 3 MOA and cross shot to the same place. However, the two sets where about 1.75 inches apart at 100 yds.

If you can live with the above then this is good sight for the price. If not then don't get it.
Pros: rugged construction, price...
