BARSKA 3-7×20 Rimfire Riflescope Review

BARSKA 3-7x20 Rimfire Riflescope

This BARSKA 3-7×20 scope is an entry-level model that I can recommend for those who are into recreational and competitive target shooting.

With it’s 3 to 7x variable magnification with the 20mm objective lens, it can be a very good scope to have for close to medium-range shooting.

It performs very well at ranges of 50 to 80 yards but struggles past the 100-yard mark. Plus, you won’t likely think twice about parting with your hard-earned money as this scope is very much affordable.

This Barska riflescope is quite short at 11 inches and weighs around 4.8 ounces. It won’t add up a lot of weight to your rifle. It should make you more accurate with your shots.

One of the strengths of this scope is that it is very easy to use. Mounting should not be a problem at all with this scope. Once it is mounted on the rifle, it holds pretty well.

Its windage and elevation adjusters also have a nice positive click when you turn them on. The markings are also clear so you would know which direction you need to turn.

3x to 7x magnification

This is a scope that you can use for close to medium range shooting with its 3x to 7x magnification power. The magnification can be adjusted so you can be more accurate with your shots.

Some reviewer says that the images remain clear even when the magnification is maximized at 7x.

Good build quality

This rimfire scope weighs just 4.8 ounces and measures 11.5 inches long. It has a rugged design that makes it a good choice for hunters.

It is made of solid metal giving it the durability you would want from your scope. Because it is lightweight, it won’t make your rifle heavier and harder to maneuver especially when you are in the woods.
