The 1-4x28 SWAT-AR Rifle Scope by Barska has been specifically designed for accurate close to mid-range targeting with today's popular AR-style rifles. The 1-4x28 SWAT-AR utilizes the highly effective Mil-Dot Reticle, which can be used to quickly estimate range and elevation adjustments. This Illuminated Mil-Dot Reticle (IR) can also be illuminated to either red or green with adjustable brightness settings for accurate targeting in any lighting situation. Fully Multicoated optics reduce glare and increase light transmission, giving the SWAT-AR 1-4x28 Rifle Scope impressive viewing clarity.

Customize Your View

A side adjustable rheostat allows the user to quickly adjust the color and brightness of the Mil-Dot reticle. Adjust the reticle to green for easier targeting in bright environments. Select the red reticle when targeting in lowlight or indoor situations.


Glare Reduction

A built-in angled sunshade helps minimize glare on the objective lens, which in turn provides a clearer view to the user. This sunshade also works to reduce scope glint when targeting in sunny environments.


Locked In

External windage and elevation turrets allow the user to quickly adjust the impact point without needing to remove turret caps. Tighten the collar around the turret to ensure the turret is locked in order to prevent any unintentional adjustments.


Covers Included

Two included flip-up scope caps help prevent dust buildup and moisture on the lenses during storage and transport. These covers quickly open at the touch of a thumb, and can be accessed ambidextrously.

Ratings and Reviews

  1. What a bargain

    review by Getsome on 11/30/2017

    Great budget scope.... intro for sure... shipped fast... arrived and mounted....
    great look and function..... cannot beat the price!

  2. Great scope

    review by JOSHUA DIFORTI on 10/19/2017

    I got this scope 2 weeks again and it work like a charm. It lives up to its name.

  3. IR Swat on AR 15

    review by TB_AR_MARK on 11/12/2016

    Very nice quality aluminum construction Fine reticles for accurate target shooting Very easy to adjust Very sturdy mounts. A longer eye relief would be plus when using on a tactical rifle such as an AR A wider range of magnification would be a plus, maybe 1-10x

  4. Great at the range

    review by Jason on 11/12/2016

    Light up crosshairs - Locking windage and elevation - Awesome scope for the price!! I currently have this mounted on my Colt le6920 and i've done about 400 rounds with this scope. It has held zero really well so far, and was really easy to zero in. Definitely one of the best scopes for the price.

  5. First Barska Scope

    review by AC11872 on 11/12/2016

    I was concerned that a scope at this price might be lacking in quality, but after reading a number of positive reviews from Amazon, I decided to give it a shot. So far I have been very impressed with this scopes build quality and optics. The illuminated reticle is extremely sharp and is a nice feature for shooting in low light or against dark targets. I also liked that it came with it's own mount, which kind of sets the scope forward just a bit. All in all I am very pleased with this scope, and am looking forward to trying it out further.

  6. AR rifle scope 1-4x28 Love It!

    review by mtsbones 40 on 11/10/2016

    Really Nice Scope 1-4 Times Mag is really nice. Mil-dot zeroing in is easy lens covers work well and flip with the flick of a finger adjustments are very easy, LOVE IT!

  7. Sweet Scope

    review by Seth on 11/10/2016

    Works well, doesn't move. Pretty accurate. Color changing reticle. It's great for the money, the mount it comes with is also fantastic! If you're looking for a good and cheap ACOG-type scope, buy this.

  8. I would buy again and have recommended to my son

    review by Paw Paw on 11/10/2016

    Good eye relief. I really like the reticle and the illumination is a plus.Scope seems really clear. I had never used a Barska. I grew up with Redfield, Leupold and Nikon so I was skeptical. So far so good. I would buy again and have recommended to my son.

  9. Just A Really Great Scope

    review by Mr.hkw on 11/10/2016

    Great Scope! The clarity and the variable zoom is very good. very easily attaches to your rail

  10. Great AR-15 Scope

    review by H. Hunter on 11/9/2016

    I installed this scope on my Ar-15. Easy installation. I like the adjustments without having to use a tool. I tweaked this scope at the range and its straight hitting the bullseye in tight groups.

  11. SWAT Scope Great price, good for CQB or longer distance

    review by Sens Navy on 11/9/2016

    I would buy another Barksa in a heartbeat! This thing is deadly accurate once zeroed, and the price was unreal! Only paid $200 CDN incl taxes. Highly recommend this scope for an AR. Great price, good for CQB or longer distance, easy to adjust, red/green/black reticle.

  12. Beyond Cool

    review by fastasu on 5/22/2015

    This is by far one of the most functional scopes I've ever used...also coolest looking.Easy to mount. Adjustments are easy,precise and intuitive.

  13. best value for the money

    review by DenBecTec on 4/6/2015

    Best value for the money ,worked on my S&w ar right out of the box.took two minutes to install I would buy another barska product because they have the quality I need in my profession. Easy to install ,and set up easiest scope that I have ever zeroed took 4 rounds of .556and about 5 minutes.I work for mossad h.r.t team and I use this scope every day

  14. Great Scope

    review by Mr.hkw on 3/13/2015

    Great Scope! The clarity and the variable zoom is very good. very easily attaches to your rail

  15. Good alternative

    review by Horn on 3/6/2015

    Three rounds within a quarter at 25 and 50 yards mounted on M4. A little looser at 100 but never missed a 8" target (probably my fault). Seems to hold zero. Nice clear glass and mil dot reticle with red/green illumination is nice. Price is good and quality is good. Would buy another if the need arises.

  16. Great Value, Wonderful Optic

    review by TinMan on 1/13/2015

    Great picture quality, holds zero well. I put this on my AR-15 chambered in7.62x39 and is a perfect fit. On 1 power I can shoot with both eyes open at close range and be very effective and fast target acquisition. On 4 power, even with cheap Wolf ammo, I can shoot sub MOA at 100 yards. It is my second Barska, my first was the 3-9 Point Black on my 5.56. Great scope also, wish it had the illuminated reticle.

  17. Really nice scope

    review by mtsbones40 on 6/12/2014


  18. Works Great!

    review by kosh on 3/23/2014

    Works great in low or high light holds 0 good have it mounted on ar 308 very clear at 1 or 4 power. I will get one more for my small carbine's

  19. Very Good Scope

    review by Odie on 3/8/2014

    Clear optics easy to mount rugged holds zero well. Very good scope over all very well made, crystal clear for the price. Will undoubtedly recommend


    review by CORE15 NATION on 8/25/2013

    Awesome value, looks, clarity, and mechanic's. 1x setting was able to use pop-up iron sites as stated. this was the biggest seller for me. no other scope i found had this feature. at 4x i was able to hit 12oz. soda cans at 300 yards. used blue lock-tite. after 200 rounds, scope still right on. will bragg to others with AR platforms. :-) :-) :-) :-) :-)

  21. Well made
