Barska is great for the Dime!
I have a Nikon 1.5-4.5 x 32mm that is designed for rifles. It is a great short shot (under 250m) scope...but it cost about $75 more than the Vortex 2-7x32mm and about $100 more than the 1.5-4x 32mm Barska and if you are just looking through the scope I guarantee you that you can not tell the difference. Unless you spend at least $400 for a scope you might as well find one you like at the mid-price range and expect it will get cloudy at 200+m...that is just the way it is with modern scopes.
I can see quite well out to 300m with my nikon in the middle of the day, same with the Vortex and Barska, but at dusk the Nikon is a 150m scope....same for the Vortex and the Barska. The Barska is the best buy for the money in these low end scopes....Just think...Nikon $160, Vortex $85 and Barska $40....go ahead and make your choice.
Or compare the low end Nikon that is 6-24x50mm to comparable Vortex and Barska, I have, the difference? Price!! Save the money and buy the Barska for now, unless you have owned a really great scope in the past you won't tell the difference and I haven't met one shooter yet that can use a scope on a rifle set past 14x with strong accuracy. My buddy is a marine sniper and he uses a 3-9x32mm for every kind of hunting including ground hogs out to 300m and never sets it to 9x for anything under 250m
