One thing to consider is the fact that the msrp is $300.00. I would call and ask their return policy, if they take it back no questions asked, I would buy it, try it and go from therejimmyjames said:yea, I figured as much but didn't know if anyone had seen this one or thier thoughts on barska in general. Everyone says equate the money with the quality etc. I just wondered if any of these things hold zero. thanks forthe feedback. Yea Rammone, of my other buddys said same thing why put sniper on an assault rifle. He's trying to get me to get a sniper rifle per se, but if i do i might need it to defend myself in divorce court lol
Really good recommendation here, OP. I've read a lot of reviews on Vortex optics and all of them have been good.The Robfather said:http://swfa.com/Vortex-6-24x50-Crossfire-Rifle-Scope-P43585.aspx
hows that .22 scope coming LOL we going tonight?vmtcmt said:Had a cheap Barska 3-9X40 on my 10/22 that would not focus at 25-30 yds at MF. Returned it.
Had this one on my SKS. Worked OK for a shorty, but discovered the mount for the SKS was poop.
It's back in the box awaiting my AR build.
Personally I'm done with cheap glass. I have a couple of cheap BSA's that are working OK for me, but I've had to swap some of them, too. To me, it is just not worth the hassle to save a few bucks. Better glass is worth the investment.
I recently had the occasion to deal with Vortex customer service.Il Buono said:Really good recommendation here, OP. I've read a lot of reviews on Vortex optics and all of them have been good.
Good bit of info... thanks.PandM said:I recently had the occasion to deal with Vortex customer service.
Let me start by saying that I am one of those people who will happily pay a bit more for better customer service and am quite vocal when it's lacking. Same with the local shops, only I'm vocal in my absense from the paticular shop.
I was minutes wway from buying a Leupold recently and had to call them with a question. "You wait time is approximately 8 minutes" was the message I got from the robo operator. See ya. That is more than enough to have me packing, I really don't care how slick a product you have. Impatient you say? Probably. Too old and cranky to change now.
Anyway - back to Vortex. I spoke to a fellow named Tom Leatherberry, who was knowledgeable, patient, very giving of his time and probably more honest than he needed to be. I was never rushed, written off or pressured.
Vortex gets a big A+ in customer service in my book.
Take a look at http://www.cameralandny.com/ for some healthy discounts on Vortex.
The Viper is being replaced in the spring with the PST and the Vipers are a pretty good deal right now. Reticle choices are limited, but if you're not dead set on a paticular one.......................
