Re: Barska Scope users/reviews?

Yep, I had a true glow also. It died after a couple of months but was capable of moa with a ruger 10-22 with bulk ammo. The turrets on the 6-24x went wacky and I used for a hammer. Worked better as a hammer than as a scope(lasted longer). Get at least a mid-line scope and it'll go for decades. The only other scope I've broken was an old elite 3000(bushy-baush& lomb) that I had on a lightweight 375h@h-- shoot it apart and it went cloudy-- they gave me a new elite 3200 as a replacement.

Never went barska; I'd have to have someone else go into the store to buy it for me, possibly on a dare.

I've always heard folk refer to this scope company as Barfska.

At least I know what to expect......

There is no recoil on the 10-22 to speak of so I was hoping my 60 bucks would go a ways.....

The really cheap scopes have no guarantee either.

I think we all succumb to the call of cheap ocassionally......

I put a 4x bushnell 22 scope back on my 10-22 and it's been fine for a few years now. I had originally put the truglow on a ar for load workups, and when I was done with a few of those I went back to peeps on the ar. I don't like using a handle mount, so I moved it off the ar pretty quickly. Re-sighted for the 22 lr and played with a couple of different brands with it and one of the turrets got tipsy and fell off. Even at $60 I felt cheated; I'd go with a used scope before I try a bottom line again.
