    Off the top of my head:

    Tracking
    Reliability/ability to hold a zero
    Optical Clarity
    Durability
    Features (i.e. First Focal Plane vs Second Focal Plane, Zero Stop/High Speed Turrets, Illumination, etc)
    Parallax Adjustment and Accuracy

    That's the equivalent to asking me why a Geo Metro doesn't perform the same as an Audi R8.

    Make no mistake, comparing a Barska to a S&B, NF, USO or Premier is the equivalent comparison. The Barska is rolled off of an assembly line using far inferior materials than any of the above listed, which are all hand crafted/custom built with extremely high quality control measures.

    EDIT: Your biggest expense on a rifle should be your scope/rings. More often than not your scope purchase should eclipse that of your rifle. Do not skimp.
