Barska ARE JUNK. The internals don't even qualify as second rate. I'd look elsewhere if I were you.

Trust me, this is true. From first hand experience this is utterly true. Move up to something better. I believe the saying goes, buy a rifle you can afford, and optics you can't.

Re: about barska on ar15

I have looked through a couple from some guys I work with that believe there is no difference between barfska and USO. They looked like shit all around! Poor finish on details, poor glass quality, and one of the two was a red dot that stopped working before the first trip to the range was over. My 300 dollar millet puts them to shame! That's not saying much at all. You would be better off with good iron sight in my opinion.

Ok... Your grammar is kind of confusing. I'm not sure which ones you are saying are crap and which ones you are not. It would appear from your statement that Barska and USO are trash and the Millet is the way to go.

Can you expand?

    Very poor resolution on the Barska scopes I have looked through. I see quite a few in use but don't know how long they hold up. You get what you pay for in optic which I learned the hard way many yearts ago, look else where.
