Everything that you have heard about this scope is accurate! The Excavator Scope Series exhibits a number of great features to help the user accurately engage targets at greater distances. A Red Illuminated Target Dot Reticle allows the user to quickly engage the target, and 11 different brightness settings ensures the perfect reticle brightness setting in any lighting situation. An Adjustable Objective (AO) lens can be set to different preset distances to eliminate the parallax effect at those ranges. Tough waterproof, fogproof, and shockproof construction ensures that your Excavator Rifle Scope will be able to handle whatever you or the elements throw its way. Each Excavator Rifle Scope comes complete with a set of 5/8 inch scope rings, a 3 inch attachable sunshade, flip-up scope caps, and is backed by Barska's Limited Lifetime Warranty.

An addition to my previous review. The stated eye relief says 3.6 inches. Its closer to 2 to 2 1/2 inches. Very close when on a high powered rifle. I'm going to have to hold it tight into my shoulder. For an air gun it would be okay.
I was looking for a scope to get me a little farther out than 100 yds. but still retain some clarity. I really like the object focus dial on the optical bell, and the parallax adjustment on the front bell that is adjustable to yardage. The lens caps are good quality. The turrets are adjustable to zero once you've zeroed your scope at your preferred distance. Simply loosen 3 screws on the turrets, turn to zero and re-tighten. Two slightly negative points, though. One, the reticle hairs are tiny, I mean very, very thin. Lucky the "dot" in the center is a bit larger to place over your target. The IR dot feature is nice if you're shooting in low light, and when its on or off its small enough as to not hinder sight of your target. The IR dot is really not usable in the daytime, so all you guys who complain that you cant see it at high noon need an education. Its for very low light, almost dark conditions. The second thing is that the sight picture is small. All my other scopes, including a Barska, have a larger diameter sight picture when at the optimum eye relief. With this scope you see a lot of black tunnel around the sight picture. If that bothers you then I wouldn't go with this scope. The price is very good for the features so you can buy more ammo with what you save. Good hunting and shooting.
