The one I had a couple of years ago did not hold up to 06 recoil, dead in 20 rounds replaced and sold.

I don't have one. From the price range ( and from what the fellas on this forum say..) I think the Barska is in the same category as an empty cardboard toilet paper tube.  As a matter of fact, most of the guys here think the toilet paper tube has got better optics!  Smile

Don't buy one. Get something else.                --Ed     Big%20Grin

I'd look more toward the tasco world class or the bushnells at this price point,  I'd maybe consider the baraska on rimfire, but not centerfire.

As long as that toilet paper tube has a gold ring, right Ed? Big%20Grin

Do a search for Barska.  Cheaptrick did a full review and testing on one that was sent to him.  The guys on here know that I love to find a good scope at a great price, but I would never touch a Barska.

If money is real tight and you need to keep it cheap check out lucytuma's advice.  Have both a Tasco World Class (on a 22) and a Bushnell Trophy on a 44.  Both have performed very well and won't break the bank.

Welcome to The OT!!
 
My friend, you would be much better served looking at,
(or through) Wink another brand of scope and leave the Barska's alone.
These guys that responded are doing their level best to keep you from wasting your hard earned money.
 
Is the one your interested in a "Euro-30 PRO"? 
What type of shooting are you looking to do?

Along the same lines as the Barska, I put BSA in the same league. Just in case you had looked at them. I'll take the empty toilet paper roll. At least I could make that hold a zero.
