Availability: In stock

The 1-4x28 SWAT-AR Rifle Scope by Barska has been specifically designed for accurate close to mid-range targeting with AR-style rifles. The 1-4x28 SWAT-AR utilizes the highly popular Mil-Dot Reticle, which can be used to quickly estimate range and elevation adjustments. This Illuminated Mil-Dot Reticle (IR) can also be illuminated to either red or green with adjustable brightness settings for accurate targeting in any lighting situation. Fully Multicoated optics and a built-in Sniper Edge sunshade help reduce glare and increase light transmission, giving the SWAT-AR 1-4x28 Rifle Scope impressive viewing clarity. External windage/elevation turrets assist the user in quickly zeroing in the SWAT-AR, and can then be locked into place to prevent any unintentional movement. The 1-4x28 SWAT-AR Rifle Scope includes a 30mm cantilever ring mount, which makes the SWAT-AR ready for rail mounted use with any flat-top AR-style rifle.

The new SWAT-AR 1-4x28 IR has been specifically designed for tactical rifles such as the popular AR-15 platform, and the compact size and low profile make the SWAT-AR 1-4x28 a great addition to any flattop AR-15 rifle. Included with the SWAT-AR riflescope is a 30mm cantilever scope mount, which places the SWAT-AR just forward of the rifles charging handle.

The 1-4x zoom of the SWAT-AR makes it ideal for close to mid-range targeting, and the illuminated Mil-Dot reticle gives the shooter an advantage in low light situations. The shooter is able to switch between a red or green reticle and adjust the brightness to find the optimal reticle for the environment.  The fully multi-coated optics of this scope series aims to provide the shooter with a sharp, clear image with great contrast. The SWAT-AR 1-4x28 also comes nitrogen purged and o-ring sealed for complete waterproof and fogproof protection.

Other features of the SWAT-AR 1-4x28 IR scope includes external locking windage and elevation turrets and an angled sniper edge sunshade. The external locking turrets allow the user to quickly make adjustments to the scopes windage and elevation settings, and then have the ability to lock them into place to prevent any unintentional movement. The angled sniper edged sunshade significantly reduces glare and provides the user with a clearer view. Flip-up scope caps and battery are also included.

Great Scope

Easy install. Use blue loctite on rings and mounts, Easy zero. The mount looks good and moves the scope ahead of charging handle. I like 6 screws per ring. No cover to take off to make adjustments.

I taped the allen wrench and an extra battery into my AR's hand grip. I have easily ran 500 rounds through with no problems. I would recommend this scope for anyone looking for a good inexpensive optic.

I was concerned that a scope at this price might be lacking in quality, but after reading a number of positive reviews from Amazon, I decided to give it a shot. So far I have been very impressed with this scopes build quality and optics. The illuminated reticle is extremely sharp and is a nice feature for shooting in low light or against dark targets. I also liked that it came with it's own mount, which kind of sets the scope forward just a bit. All in all I am very pleased with this scope, and am looking forward to trying it out further.

Great at the range

- Light up crosshairs - Locking windage and elevation - Awesome scope for the price!!

None yet

I currently have this mounted on my Colt le6920 and i've done about 400 rounds with this scope. It has held zero really well so far, and was really easy to zero in. Definitely one of the best scopes for the price.
Good Over all

Delivers fast acquisition. Clear and can be used with sights. Not awesome but it works.

Heavy!!!!! Poor Battery life. set screws can come loose without lock tight.

When compared to some of the others optics at this price point it is in my opinion the best buy.

Very nice quality aluminum construction Fine reticles for accurate target shooting Very easy to adjust Very sturdy mounts

No reference mark for windage and elevation Instruction sheet is more of a generic for multiple Barska models and has very small print No cross bar in picatinny mount for positive positioning Magnification dial a little stiff to turn The specified eye relief is 4.5", this is a little over the actual, I found the eye relief for quick targeting and accuracy was about 3.0"

Reference marks for windage and elevation would be a plus A longer eye relief would be plus when using on a tactical rifle such as an AR A wider range of magnification would be a plus, maybe 1-10x

came today less than 30 minutes after I got back from the range, 1 week after purchase. Looks great on my Colt AR LE9620. Reticles look great, guess I am back to the range tomorrow

Rings loose and on backwards.
