jp,
comparing a Nightforce to a Barska is like comparing Maria Sharapova to Rosie O'Donnell. Nightforce and Barska are both scope's like Maria and Rosie are both women but a quick glance will confirm they are at opposite ends of the spectrum in quality.
anyone could look at a Nightforce or Maria and be pleased, but to truly be pleased looking at Barska or Rosie would take some serious rationalization or very thick beer goggle's IMHO

Barska is like most brands, they make some good stuff and a lot of junk! I found their Tactical line to be pretty good but their Swat Tactical sucks. Their life time warranty sucks also, you have to send them $25 to replace a defective scope. Their Tactical at $250 or so with side focus, mildot reticle on first focal plane are nice features for the money and preform well.

UB, i understand your comparison but to assume that Rosie is a woman might be a bit of a stretch. here in Pennsyltucky we haven't conceded that is a fact!
