I also have seen to many Barska products fail. I had a Vortex SPARC but sold it and got a Strikefire. Be aware the 2x multiplier that comes with it imo is worthless.

I don't believe it is worthless. I just think it really isn't what people think it will be. Everyone expects 3X magnification, because that's what they seen (most magnifiers are), so when they see 2X they aren't that impressed. When shooting 240ish, I know the 2X def helped. How much, well, enough to make me go rummage through my bag to get it back at the car. It does suck that it screws on and off though. I hated that part

Yea I don't have a problem with the doubler. It does seem like it might easily scratch or cross thread. Not the ideal doubler but it works in a pinch

I have owned both barska and sightmark optics. Will never own either again. I have learned the hard way optics especially holographic/red dots is something you need to go with a good name. If you aren't set on a red dot look at the .223 series of Nikon scopes the 3 power is under 150 and a great scope for the money.

Boom! 115$ for a Strikefire, a significant upgrade over both of those. You can also get the Sparc on sale right now for 149$, which is usually less than the strikefire normally. Go for this, trust us.

I'm actually not using either permanently now. One of my good friends is a sergeant and runs the S.W.A.T team for an area PD. He said they are switching from eotech to aim points. He told me he would get me an Eotech as soon as they switch over. Can't beat that deal!
