We bought six Barska spotting scopes for the public to use out at our rifle/pistol range two years ago. Three are still in use, and only one of the remaining three hasn't required repair.

I have a Basrka Electro Scope I bought, not bad, but eye relief is tricky.

I had a red dot on my AR and loved it.

I have used a couple of their optics...have worked well...so far. The only other thing I know is they are made in China even though the name sounds Russian. :banghead:

I have a 4-16x40AO on a 223. It works but is not good by any means, though I have been accused of being a glass snob. If I had to do it over again I'd have bought better. As always YMMV, and my sample size is 1.

I've got a Barska spotting scope. I bought it so I could see holes in paper targets at 100 yards. It does that, so mission accomplished.
I took a side by side look through a better brand (not a Zeiss or Swarovski or something else beyond my middle class means) at the range one day and the difference was amazing. Better glass makes a big difference.
For my future opitcs purchases I will be saving my pennies and buying higher end brands.
Good luck with whichever way you decide to go.

I looked thru my freind's scope and the eye relief was all messed up. You get what you pay for when buying China product's. I personally would not buy one.

Not sure what you're scoping, or what distances you're shooting at, but the Redfield Revolution line of riflescopes aren't terribly expensive, they're made in the USA (in Oregon) and backed by Leupold (who has owned Redfield for a few years now).
