Illuminated scope

1. Are they legal in PA?
2. Recommendations?

Re: Illuminated scope

They are legal in Pa. I don't prefer illumination but do like Hawke crossbow scopes which are available in illuminated models.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

Re: Illuminated scope

Tru Glow makes a nice one.
My Carbon Express illuminated scope cracked
When my xbow tipped over.

While I was waiting for a new one from from CE,
I bought the Tru Glow & never took it off.

The CE illuminated scope is nice but made out of
Plastic.

For the money the Hawke Scopes are hard to beat.

Re: Illuminated scope

My parker came with the hawke illuminated scope. Like someone said for the money its hard to beat. I like the scope you can adjust to brightness to low light in red or green. The issue i have is i forget to turn it off. I think it takes the 2032 battery. There were times it was on for a few days. Many times that is. The battery still keeps on lighting up the circles.

Re: Illuminated scope

Hawke and Ten Point are both good. I like the older Hawke with Blue illumination. Hard to find now but they were excellent optics. If I had to give mine up I'd replace it with the Hawke SR.

Re: Illuminated scope

I hunt a forested area. As it gets dark and the leaves are still on the trees the illuminated scope is an asset.

I have the Hawke with red and green reticles and I would recommend it.

There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn't true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.
