barska reflex sight.

hello all,
last night I was at big 5 and saw that they had a cheapo barska reflex sight. at first it wasn't all too impressive until the guy behind the counter revealed that it has 4 different styles of reticule to change between. I figure for $50 it's a pretty good deal but I was just curious if anyone has used them. often with barska hunting scopes you hear stories of them being rattled apart by heavy recoiling guns, is this true of their reflex sights as well?

maybe on a .22lr or small centerfire, but on bigger rifles or shotguns their life can some times be very limited. of course you will hear about one holding up on a .458mag or 12ga 3.5 mag.,but you can count them on one hand. i know of one of their red,s dots makeing just four rounds before imploding on a 12ga 3"mag turkey shotgun. eastbank.
