BARSKA 4×32 IR Contour Riflescope Review
Regarding the optics, what you will have are fully coated reflection resistant, glare resistant optics with a sunshade built in. The objective lens is 32 mm. Keep in mind this rifle scope is low powered, and intended for 100 yards or less. The barrel of this scope is nitrogen charged as to have your lenses remain fog proof. Field of view at 100 yards is 31.5 feet. So this scope really is best when used at around 80 yards. As for it’s ability to gather light, this is a strong light gathering scope. Images are clear, contrasted, and very crisp no matter if the light available is low. Even when in the trees, you can still see what you are targeting. This is a great bad weather, low light conditions scope.
As for the mounting of the scope, 7/8th inch rinds come standard with the scope at purchase, and the scope is a breeze to mount. You may wish to get higher rings to make sure that you have the sight that you are going for, but try the stock rings first. They might be just fine for your rifle or crossbow.
Lastly it is obvious that this scope was made to take a beating or two or three. Very much an item made to last, this scope is strong enough to cope with pistol recoil, shotgun blasts, and the higher caliber rifles. Lenses are backed by O rings, and so you have a water proof and fog proof item sound for any nasty weather. The scope is of the aircraft grade aluminum, and very durably made. Barrel is nitrogen filled, and the over construction lends it self well to being bumped, dropped, accidentally struck by a low tree branch, and so on.
No matter what happens, you will have this scope for a very long time, and it will always deliver clear crisp images of your targets.
