Leupold. Barska is not going to hold up in a field environment for very long. Your going to get what you pay for and the rifle is only as good as its sights.

Glad you checked! Friends don't let friends buy "Barfska" optics.

We've been over this many times, but in optics you really do "get what you pay for."

...and, "only a rich man can afford to buy a cheap scope."

i would highly recommend sightron SIII series scopes, they are awsome! vortex's high end scopes have also had great reviews all around, from the viper series on up.
