4 of 5 - Good
Looks like a good buy for the dollars, very clear and sharp. Seems to be well a built product.
The adjustment pod is really located in a poor spot (too far north of the center of the scope) for a fixed carry handled AR15. Using the Barska carry handle rail, you have to mount it too far to the rear and lose eye relief. Mounting the scope to achieve the proper eye relief and you’ll run out of rail on the front end. While not an insurmountable problem, it is nonetheless a problem. This scope is better suited to the flat top AR’s with a riser.
Until I figure out how to mount it properly on the AR, and keep a respectable looking rifle I have it mounted on a Kel Tec SU16.
