Replacing the illuminated dot scope on Ten Point

I would like to replace the battery powered red/green dot scope on my Ten Point Titan with an optical scope. Any suggestions? This seems like it is right down Arrowhead's alley.

Re: Replacing the illuminated dot scope on Ten Point

Currently, I wouldn't put anything other than a Hawke on my crossbows if I were in the market.

The Hawke MAP or XB30. Hawke is putting out quality, affordable optics with great customer service. Not to mention they have embraced the needs of crossbow enthusiats and support them tremendously.

Their line of rifle scopes is worth looking at as well for those looking to outfit a rifle.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

The XB-30 is my current favorite. It's got crosshairs that can be lighted in green or red and the optical clarity is really good. The speed ring can adjust it for the speed of your bow, so that the crosshairs land on 20,30,40 and 50 yards. The MAP scope is a good scope with a little less clarity in the optics, but it's still very good. The Hawke SR is the illuminated version of the MAP.

Re: Replacing the illuminated dot scope on Ten Point

I will be in to see you sometime soon, Mike. Obviously don't need the crossbow for a couple of weeks. This will be an over winter project.

The difficulty I have with the illuminated dot scope I have on the bow now is that in low light conditions (early morning and late afternoon). the light makes it nearly impossible for me to see what I am aiming at. If I turn the lighted dots off, I can see really clear, but have no way to aim. I want an unlighted scope, not one with lighted crosshairs. Failing that, I will put on a pin type sight.

Re: Replacing the illuminated dot scope on Ten Point

Sorry I missed you on Tuesday George. We were hunting in the downpours. Probably the best day hunting we have had in years. I shot an 8 point this morning so I should be around the rest of the week. (unless I'm wondering around on 544)
