Well, it Barska says it's .50 cal proofed, whatever that means. One would presume it could take 30 magnum recoil then.

On the other hand, Barska is a low end quality manufacturer. You cannot expect durability in a low end scope. Of course, you could get lucky.

Unless you're target shooting at an immovable object, 10x - 40x is much more power than you'll ever be able to use. You're much, much better off considering a 4x - 16, for instance, in a higher end scope line than this scope.

Consider that at 40x the exit pupil would only be 1.25 which would make even the highest quality scopes quite dim. Barska won't have be best glass in the world and so would probably be unusable beyond some level like 18x unless in very favorable conditions anyway.

The problem with heavy recoilers and scopes is that the heavier the scope the more likely it is to take damage due to recoil. It's because it hangs out there on those high scope rings, and is heavy.

Rim or Centre fire


If it will be your first gun then rimfire as its cheap ammo so can get lots of practice . low recoil and great for learning the basics of shooting
Centerfire is more powerful and can shoot farther so can be used on larger game but ammo is that little bit more expensive depending on calibre used
So it comes down to what you want out of your shooting what rimfire does at short ranges centerfire does at longer ranges ballistically speaking

How to remove/replace the recoil pad from a Remington 700 CDL refile?


There are two slits in the pad over the two mounting screws. Most are phillips head screws so put a dab of grease on the screwdriver and simply take it off.

If you're talking about the bolt link, it means one of the two legs has jumped out of the dimple in the link plunger. Sometimes they jump out because its broken.

well one day you may lurn that cheap is cheap! and tasco is rubbish cheap! i would say without dought the cross hair in the scope has shaken apart,,,due to recoil,,,a 30-06 has a big recoil
try holding the rifle stock on your jaw and firing the rifle off?
when or if,, you wake up in hospital with a shaterd jaw and with no teeth left in it you will know then! and cheap tasco scope is an air rifle scope it cant take 2500ft/lbs of recoil???
so it wont take much of a kick to mess it up,,
i put one on a 303 enfield??? i got 3 shots before it fell to bits!
if your going to buy cheap scope's go for nicon gold crown?

The magnification adjustment ring on my Gamo Whisper worked fine at first, then was stuck between 3X and 5X. Now it is free again but the scope is not focused on the 3X and 9X settings, but is clear on 5X...


I'm not familiar with the scope, is it an air rifle scope? One stroke type? If not, the backwards recoil of the air rifle is tough on a normal scope, they aren't made for that type of abuse. They work fine with a normal recoil. That is why they started making air rifle scopes. I'm sure that the internals of your scope are damaged somewhat, you can take off the eyepiece no problem, you might find something in there, loose screw, missing screw, you never know, don't get too carried away with the dis-assembly, you'll never get it back together. It sounds like the magnification ring is messing with the focus of the eyepiece. Might just need some oil. Hope this helps.

Rifle is shooting "strings" First round hits where I want it to and then I end up with a 5 shot group that is 6 inches long and one inch wide moving upwards from original hit at a 45 degree angle from...


The reason your shots are stringing is because the barrel is touching the stock probably at the end of the forearm. As the barrel heats up, the problem gets worse. Try sanding out the barrel channel and free-floating the barrel all the way to the recoil lug. Next, torque the action in the stock the recommended amount with an inch pound torque wrench. I torque my Remington 700 at 45 inch pounds for the front screw and 35 inch pounds for the rear screw. If you have a plastic trigger guard, 35 inch pounds will be too much for the light plastic trigger guard.

AEG triweaver rifle scope 3-9x40 can be combatible on my air gun DIANA 52 model with very big recoil?


If it fits the rail, it'll work, just make sure to adjust the scope to absorb the recoil, by target practice at about 60-80 ft, and adjusting the scope up or down until it absorbs the motion of the recoil. Hope that helps!

Non-muzzleloader use


I never thought about it but I don't see why it would not work.The only issue would be recoil, and recoil is recoil.I am considering putting a scope on my Sharps replica and only wish it to look authentic.Good Luck
