JMO but following your logic, If I advertise and ask $7,000 for a Leupold vxIII for sale, but for you I'll sell it for only $2,000. Have I just given you a good deal? Heck no.
The only thing I would consider using a Barska scope for is a target. Look thru it and you will probably see glue around the edges of the lens. GLUE!
You can buy a tremendously higher quality scope than the Barska for $500 in any sporting goods store. Check out the free classifieds here or on 24hourcampfire.com or gunsamerica.com. or anywhere else.
You will be far happier buying a used high quality scope online for $350 that will last for decades than you will be with the Barfska which surely will not.
