for 60 bucks more you could buy a muller new.....lifetime warranty, decent glass and the turrets track better..


i had a barska 6.5-20x55mm varmint scope......i bought it for 39 bucks new to put it on a rimfire.......not bad for the money...that's what it's worth though..i don't have experiecne with the swat models....but fwiw, i returned the barska and bought a muller, much happier.

if you're going to do any kind of serious shooting, i wouldn't buy the barska.
for a 100 dollars I would save up another 60 dollars and buy a muller tactical series scope...the tac II has better glass but the others are fine as well.

I've got one on a .22LR... it's ok. I wouldn't rely on it, and it's not on any of my "good" .22's. Everything works, though it will not focus down to the indicated 30 yards.

The Muellers do seem better for the money, though.

definitely for a budget scope mueller is tough to beat...tracks well and returns to zero, can't say that completely about the barska that I had.

I would recommend staying a way from them.
