I been thinking for a while to add another xbow just in case my Barnett Recurit breaks a string or cable while deer hunting.
I went with the pile driver 390 seem it has mix reviews .
The one bad rap was the cheap scope, I do have another 3 dot scope which I perfer over the cross hair setup
Will see how she shoots but 279.00 out the door was not a bad price
I like to ask has anyone try a shotgun scope on a crossbow.
I have a 1.5x4 20 mm Simmons that is mint condition works great on my single shot 38/55
I hope the scope that comes on the pile driver is o.k.
Dunham's has the same price on them just add tax.I would try the scope on it first,if it doesn't work out try the other one you have.If that don't work put a cheap red dot on it.I doubt your crossbow would kill a shotgun scope.
Well the brown truck drop off the bow today,my opinion on the bow.
Took a while to get into the instructions book.
I been shooting bows and crossbow for some time otherwise they can print it a little better to understand.
I did find the scope is not for me I perfer the 3 dots setup.
Was nothing wrong with the scope but had to many dots and lines to get confused .
I have the 3 dots setup up on the Recruit simple set up.
I tried to drawing the bow and it not easy, I am still in pretty good shape at 72 years old.
Still hit the gym 3 times a week
I really can't find anything in the con area .
The only thing I can think is the x bow has a high cheek rest.
I will be using the crank set up if it get a little tuff to draw nice feature to have.
I went over the xbow a few times can't find anything to upset me
Shot today shoots one hole group at 15 yards.
The arrow that came with the package are on the heavy side 460 gr.
I have 405 gr. Wow a big difference in speed.
I would like the bolt to sit a little tighter in the trigger housing will always make sure to seat the arrow before shooting
