I have a couple of Barska scopes. The 1.5x6 with lighted reticle is sharp, clear and worked great on my mini. It would make a great hunting scope out to 300 yds. I dont know if I would put it on a magnum. I have a 3x12 AO on my CZ452 22lr and it is OK for the $ but not great. The reviews on the 1.5x6 were all pretty good but I cant say that for some of their other scopes.
