Barska 1-4×28 IR SWAT-AR Riflescope Review

Barska 1-4x28 IR SWAT-AR Riflescope

The Barska 1-4×28 IR SWAT-AR Riflescope is a good, quality product that can be had at an unbeatable price. Out of the box, the crosshairs are nowhere near sighted, but it only takes 10-20 rounds to get it to zero. Once there, there is no need to readjust because it stays at zero with no issues, even after long-term use.

The lowest magnification on this scope is 1x. When used at this magnification, a rifle’s own iron sight can still be used. The highest magnification on the scope is 4x, and at this level, the scope still has a crisp, clear image, making it an ideal product for mid to long-range shooting. The scope’s reticle can be illuminated black, green or red. The green is best used during the day, and the red does an awesome job in low-light situations. When used in bright sunlight, the scope’s edged sunshade comes in handy; it casts a shadow that really does a lot for reducing glare.

This scope weighs in at 16 ounces, making it a nice, lightweight choice. It has a fine, matte finish that looks really sharp. It measures 10 inches, and due to its length, this scope is best suited for rifles with a full-length rail. On an AR-15, for example, it can be a little difficult to reach the charging handle when this scope is mounted, but it’s not a huge problem.

Barska 1-4x28 IR SWAT-AR Riflescope-2Included with this Barska scope are a low-profile mount, a battery and flip-up lenses caps. The lenses caps are made of plastic, but they’re very durable, and they are easily removable. They fit snugly on the scope, so there is no need to worry about the lenses being damaged when the scope is in transit or being stored. The scope features external target turrets, which keep it steady and securely locked down. Everything is sealed up nicely on this piece, preventing fogging and other water-related issues.

Considering the price and lifetime warranty, this Barska scope is definitely worth investing in. It is on the lower price spectrum when it comes to riflescopes, but it performs flawlessly.



Nikon P-223 3×32 Matte BDC Carbine Review

nikon p223

Well, before looking for info about the Nikon P-223 3×32 Matte BDC Carbine perhaps you didn’t know Nikon had any products for firearms. As Nikon has great products outside “scopes”, of course I wanted to see more when I saw this one. Most customers that have had this for a while now have gotten at least 300-400 rounds out of it and they have seen what this baby can do. I’ll say right off hand, you will be impressed with it!

Mounting this scope is very easy and quick; it will seat straight and upright, which is so welcomed– (other scopes are refused to sit straight for some reason). You will be happy with the wide field of view and depth of range provided when using this scope. The vision is so clear, it really is such a vast improvement from using the naked eye (at any range up to 200 yards). Your precision will probably increase greatly if you get this scope.

I like the little clicks that the turrets make as you make adjustments, it’s like a little reminder that you’ve made a change to your view, it’s something small, but I appreciate it. The turrets, well the whole scope, are built very well, and can withstand a little rugged handling.

The scope zeroes especially well, and once you’re there you can maintain that through a few hundred rounds, at least! It has been tried out on moving targets and in moving vehicles, and it is awesome. It just somehow makes it easier! You will improve your range from 100 to 450 yards, shooting with much more accuracy.

I would absolutely recommend this scope for any enthusiastic gunman out there. Nikon is an exceptional company, and they have created an awesome scope here. If you are struggling with some of the ballistics or technicalities, you can always download the app that goes along with this scope. It explains everything!
