Welp, got something I didn't really need. With two good hunting crossbows, each with a good scope on it, what did I need with another scope on the SS? Found this on Amazon for under $100. It is a Hawke, Throphy Ridge and Bear's version of the XB 1. Got a Guardian ADF mount for it, and countersunk the mount screw holes to lock it in better. It is 12.6 oz on my scale (without rings). Has a fairly short (about 3") eye relief, but it's not as critical as some other scopes I've either owned or looked through. To my 65 yr. old eyes with astigmatism and progressive bifocals, it looks darn clear, once the adjustment ring in the back is adjusted. This is my first illuminated scope. The reticle seems a bit busy, but I just might get used to it. It has 5 levels of illumination in red and green. I used the lowest setting of red twice at today's 3D shoot. Needed some help with the black targets (boar and black bear). Both of those targets were down narrow, dark "tunnels" in the woods on a cloudy day. Never thought I'd want a reticle that so many marks lit up, but the bear was at 36 or so. I could easily "gap" shoot between the 30 and 40 yard + aiming points, and see what I was trying to hit. Shot an X on the bear too. I can't imagine every using any but the lowest illumination setting. It is a dull red, but clearly visible. Did not wash out the boar or bear targets, I could still see where I wanted to aim. So far I like it. For under $100, I really like it!
