Scope Question

I have a Parker Tornado, bought in August 2009. It came with the Red Hot 4x multi-reticle scope.

i really do not like the 4x scope and would prefer a 0x. I also do not want a red dot scope.

reason being is that most of my shots are within 15-yrds.

can anyone recommend a 0x multi-reticle scope?

Re: Scope Question

Don't know if it's legal in Pa, but I switched to the Excaliber Lumi Zone and love it!

Re: Scope Question

I bought a Parker Magnum several years ago, and the red dot scope was pure junk. It would not adjust. By luck, I found a 10X red dot scope with zero magnification on e-bay for $35 and snapped it up. The seller said he was color blind and had trouble with the red dots, wanted green, and 10X would not change it. I am sure that Parker and 10X do not make scopes, they buy them somewhere.
The 10X is super. A 10X dealer can probably order one.

Re: Scope Question

Hawke optics is the way to go for xbows.

I'd rather be judged by 12 than carried by 6.

Re: Scope Question

Search the CQ/TŪ riflescope made by Leupold. It might be just the thing you are looking for.

Re: Scope Question

I have a Hawke scope on my Horton Summit 150 and it is a great scope. Price was good and a life time warranty. I have had it for two years and no problems

Re: Scope Question

The Hawke are very good- but no zero power scopes.

Re: Scope Question

Why would the Excaliber be illegal?

Re: Scope Question

The Hawke XB 30 is a variable power scope. It starts out at 1.5 power. The speed ring is actually just a variable power ring changed to the speed, instead of the power. I feel it's the brightest clearest crossbow scope out there. The optics on this scope are amazing.
