Over the years, I've owned several different optics, from different mfgrs'. In the past, Barska has been a known maker of pure junk. Low price and even lower quality. Lately, a couple rags have had decent write-ups on a couple of their rifle-scopes. I had to do an emergency purchase on a spotting scope. I got on of their scope/soft and hard case deals. It has been working pretty good. Dropped twice off the table, and blown over twice. It's been2-3 years, and it still works like new. Take your chance.

Artillery lends a bit of dignity to what otherwise would be just a savage brawl......
