    I would steer clear of any Barska scope. You will be able to find a scope that will have a better picture with less power for less than 500 bucks. Barska is a brand that is best placed on a daisy or a crossman... not a remington or a savage ;)

    Many better scopes for $500.
    You can get a good Nikon,Bushnell,Sightron, Leupold, Vortex etc.
    I'm trying a different scope out and it looks pretty good.

    It is a Falcon Menace 4-14 FFP with the MP16 reticle. It has 1/2mil hash marks on the reticle.
    I saw it over on Snipercentral.com and firgure I'd give it a try.

    I just recieved it yesterday and it looks sturdy and the glass is clear. I need to get it to the range and give it a workout. It was $390 .

    I know this is an old thread but barska and 500.00 don't belong in the same subject.
    don't put a barska on anything you paid your own money for.
    As for as Falcon menace, they are way better than they price suggest. great scope for the money

    a 500 dollar set of open sights would be a better investment then a Barska:D

    1. Yes, I've used it.
    2. No, it's not worth $500.
    3. Yes, lots of them. At that power level, Mueller comes to mind, and Hawke.
