Built to Perform
The 1-4x28 IR Riflescope is designed for a wide variety of rifles. With the included cantilever mount this scope mounts low and ideally forward of the weapon's charging handle. The lowest magnification is set at a true 1x, but the scope can zoom up to 4x magnification for longer distance targeting. At 1x magnification, this scope can be used in conjunction with your rifle’s iron sight. The scope features external target turrets that lock to securely to prevent movement of the scopes windage and elevation. Depending on your preference, the glass-etched mil-dot reticle can be illuminated in black, red, or green.
Built for Comfort and Durability
Whether using in sunny, rainy, dark, or light conditions, BARSKA has strived to build a highly versatile scope. To save your eyes while using this scope, the IR scope features a built-in sniper edged sun-shade in the housing to cast a shadow and reduce glare for use in bright sun. Ready for harsh elements, the scope is CO-2 nitrogen purged and O-ring sealed for 100% waterproof and fog proof protection.

But, as I have stated in the title, this if by far the best Barska scope I have owned. I believe that every product should be rated against its peers, so I won't waste your time comparing it to my Remington 700P's Leupold VX-3 or an ACOG that I have used during my time in the military. I will compare it to similarly priced (Bushnell, UTG, etc), budget scopes and optics.
In that regard, this scope is AMAZING. The lenses are crystal clear and the whole package is very well built. My only complaint would be that it is quite heavy, but I think I this ends up being a tribute to its sturdy construction.
As some others have noted, the 1x is not exactly 1x. It is close, but not spot on... I would say about 1.05x to 1.1x. It is close enough that you can shoot with both eyes open for about 10 to 20 seconds before your vision starts messing up. It works for initial engagements, but you eventually have to close your non-dominant (support) eye during sustained shooting. It's not perfect, but for about $100, it's pretty darn close.
I have had the opportunity to bring this particular scope to the range twice since mounting it on my Colt LE6940 and have put nearly 1,000 rounds through it. It has not came loose from its rails and has not lost zero. My testing has been pretty extensive including rapid firing and rough transitions into different shooting positions. At one point, I even knocked my weapon onto the ground from the bench while working on a shooting position with my aforementioned Remington 700P. There is a nice scuff in the scope's housing from the fall, but it maintained zero...Kudos to Barska.
I didn't make this purchase lightly. I watched several YouTube videos bashing the scope, but read other reviews praising it. When Amazon offered a $20 discount, I made the purchase and am happy that I did.
In one such YouTube review, the reviewer (in two separate videos) complained that it lost zero after about 60 rounds multiple times. I use Lock-Tite on everything that I attach to any of my weapons' rail systems, so I am guessing that might be where he failed.
The crosshairs are very fine (which I prefer). The red/green lighting makes seeing the crosshairs easier in low light (as well as during the day). The view is incredibly clear, even when zoomed to the maximum 4x. The eye relief is excellent.
I would say that the only complaint that I have about this scope is that I actually mounted it backwards the first time. With the lens covers attached, it is pretty easy to mix it up (especially when you get excited about new toys like I do). The problem is that you can actually see through the scope and see the crosshairs from the other side in 1x zoom...though it appears somewhat fuzzy. Until I caught my error, I was pretty disappointed with the scope. Afterwards, I love it.
Bottom Line: If you are looking for an amazing budget optic, you can't go wrong with this one.
- Good eye relief, one of my biggest gripes with the lower priced scopes.
- Plain simple sights.
- Clear, better than most 100 - 400$ scopes.
-LEDs stopped working, not really anything I cared about but if that's your big reason.
- Mine out of the box was EXTREMELY off zero. On my first shot at a range I hit about 4 lanes left and hit ground at about 50 yards. So be ready for some odd shots out of the box. I got a cheap laser bore sight just to get me started.
I would say like a lot of other products on the market, you can get good and bad, take a chance, if you like them there good, if you don't, Amazon is good with their return policy.
