OK so I know the overall impression of Barska optics and I've searched around on the forum and couldn't find much on their higher end scopes.

 

I've seen one of the Barska SWATs before and it seemed decently put together and reasonably clear, but that isn't conclusive.

 

Does anyone have any feedback specifically on these scopes?

I would say get the Super sniper, it is a lot better scope in my opinion. I have used both the Barska swat 6-24X44 on my dads rifle and my SS10X42 side by side and both of us agree that the SS is better.

One thing we really noticed is you feel like you are looking through a long tube with the Barska even when it is on 6X, it looks like the SS has a wider field of view even though it is a 10X.

The Barska is on his .257 Weatherby and it seems to hold a reasonable zero but I have noticed that it is off ˝”inch or so after dialing in elevation/windage combinations, this does not happen all the time just when the knobs get used a lot.

The Barska does what he needs it to but he has told me several times that he will replace it with a SS when it goes bad.
