How to choose Illuminated Crossbow Scope

Let’s peak into the 5 most important aspects you need to know before buying a scope for your crossbow.

  • Price Range:

The product has a wide range of prices. The highest one is the Excalibur Tact Zone but if you have a low budget and still want to go for a decent scope then definitely Field Sport is your pick.

  • Magnification:

The scope comes with specifications of lenses in the form of 6 x 32, 4 x 32, and 3 x 32. Well, 6, 4, and 3 are the times of magnification provided more than the normal sight. The “32” comes for the diameter of the objective lens which gives the wide-area coverage. The magnification of the illuminated crossbow scope determines the range of yards to take a clear shot.

  • Distant sight points:

There are dots, points, or interactions for the arrow drop and more of them can lead a longer shoot. You can expect each dot to represent 10 yards but the range would be high up to 100 yards where there are 9 points on a vertical line.

  • Water and Shock resistance:

Make sure there are rubber rings or nitrogen filling in scopes to cut-off the moisture so that the multi-coated lens doesn’t get foggy. The long-distance shot at times gives strong recoil to the bow so checking for the shock proofing is a must.

  • Wind age and Elevation adjustments:

These adjustments must be right at the fingertips in the form of a knob on top that helps in the correct acquisition of the trajectory.

  • Reticule colors:

There are black, green, and red colors for clear color contrast between the target points. 

  • Clarity:

Clarity is the basic requirement. How would you use the scope if you can’t see your target clearly? So, for the scope to work clarity is a must.  Make sure that you have high-quality lenses, prisms, and lens coatings. We would recommend you to buy Hawke XB30 Pro which has 16 different layers of coating that permits more light to pass and gives a clearer view.
