I was wondering if anyone has used, reviewed or purchased a Barska SWAT Tactical rifle scope.  I was looking for a low-mid range tactical scope for my .308 and heard some okay things about Barska.  I was looking at the 6-24x44ir.  I'm not looking for anything to fancy in optic quality just something that will hold zero, easily adjustable, windage and elevation knobs with side focus.  So let me know what you think.  If anyone has any other ideas let me know.  Looking to spend less than $400.  Thanks.

Barska = POOP!!!!

Best of luck to you.

That's only cause they didn't know any better.I guess I'll have to take a closer look at one I really haven't paid much attention to them with that big funky knob on the side.   I think I would be more willing to trust this, the only thing I don't like about the one I have is the 1/8 moa adjustments but it is great glass and you can dial in correction with the knobs fairly well:

424164M Bushnell 4-16x40 Elite 4200 Rifle Scope                                                                                 Bushnell 4-16x40 Elite 4200 Rifle Scope
  • Matte
  • Multi-X
  • 1"
  • Rainguard
  • Adjustable Objective
  • Free 5" Sun Shade w/ Purchase
SWFA: $389.95

I've played with the Millett TRS-1.  It is a nice scope.  It is not S&B, but it is a pretty solid design for the money.

Ufrend have you tried one of the TRS-1 scopes? I bought one for the hell of it and a 2nd because I liked it no problems in over a year I think its a good scope for the price. Oh and I have swaro and ziess vd scopes for 4 times + the money and have had for years but we are talking bang for the buck and the Millett is good at that price for a 4-16

For what I have in a couple of high end scopes I could buy a dozen Milletts and a rifle and have change left over.

Try one you might like it.
