The 10-40x50 AO Varmint Riflescope (Black Matte) from Barska is a perfect choice for many types of shooting including varmint hunting, target shooting, long range and precision shooting. The Varmint features an Adjustable Objective (AO) for parallax correction, a quick access magnification zoom ring as well as exceptionally high windage and elevation turrets. It has a 1" tube construction and comes with a Target Dot reticle. The click value adjustment of the windage and elevation turrets is ⅛ MOA. Its large objective together with multi-coated optics provides more clarity and greater brightness via increased light transmission. Waterproof, shockproof and fogproof, the Varmint riflescope is protected in all kinds of environments. And it's backed by Barska's Limited Lifetime Warranty.

To use a riflescope with your firearm, you'll need a mounting base and mounting rings in addition to the scope itself. Bases attach to your firearm and the rings attach your scope to the base. Proper spacing of the rings, as well as the ring height should be considered to ensure a proper line of sight can be established. This will maximize the value of your investment, and enhance your shooting experience. It should be noted that in many mounting applications, a professional gunsmith's skills will be needed for proper installation.

      Comments about Barska 10-40x50 AO Varmint Riflescope (Black Matte):

      Difficult to see through the optics. At higher power level the view is hazy around the edged - not so bad at lower power...so why not get a lower power scope. The "Dot" is virtually impossible to see. Will not focus at 25 yards. This scope is best at 100 yards at 10 power. Not sure it it was my mounts or the scope, but my "zero" wandered around when I changed distances: If I shot X=setting at 50 years, then tried 100 yards and went back to 50 the original settings would not hit the center of the target.
