Guys

 

Opinions on Barska Benchmark spotting scope

I am just looking to use it now and then at the range to adjust scopes.

 

Perhaps a better question is what is a good sope for my purposes????

I have never owned the model you mentioned. I did own one of their inexpensive model the "Deerhunter" and was really disappointed in both the optical quality and the durability. It broke after one season of use. The model you are considering may be of higher quality so take my comments with a grain of salt.

 

If you are looking for a decent quality, fairly inexpensive scope for benchrest use then I would suggest something like the Bushnell Sentry (I think that was the name) model. It was a super compact 50 mm scope with very good optical quality for the price. I thought it compared very favorably to the now discontinued Nikon Earth and Sky 65 mm.
