The TRUGLO Crossbow Open Red Dot Sight, Dual Color (Red / Green), Black (TG8350B4) is really an amazing unit, it is small and very compact and weights next to nothing. It really makes sense to use this scope on light crossbow setups in order to keep down weight for example when you have to walk a long distance to reach your hunting spot.
The Crossbow sight assembles in seconds, just two screws to set, thanks to its integral weaver mount, then turn the unit on and start the tuning procedure.
First off you need to know your arrow speed, using a dial you can select between four arrow speeds A, B, C, D that correspond to 300, 325, 350 and 400 FPS. As usual, there are two screws to regulate windage and elevation. The regulation screws have an audible click and one click corresponds to 1 inch at 100 yards. The regulation margin is 30 inches at 100 yards.
Each arrow speed selection corresponds to a different dot spacing to compensate for different arrow drop. Dots cannot be individually adjusted.
The four dots (20, 30, 40 and 50 yards) are fixed in size (5MOA) but can be regulated in both color (red or green) and brightness in 5 steps for each color. Red and green dots provide different contrast in order to suit personal preferences and different target illumination conditions. The variation between high (5) and low (1) setting is enough to provide a visible dot in full sunlight while not being distracting in lower light conditions.
The 5 MOA size dot is "about just right" except at the longer distances (50 yards) where it may just cover a little too much of the target, but at this point you can change reduce the brightness or switch to green color in order to have an apparently smaller dot.
The sight window is 34mm wide by 24mm high, and is wide enough for an ample field of view while being unobtrusive during transportation. The target side of the lens is coated to prevent unwanted reflexes that might spook your game.
The Crossbow Open Red Dot Sigh includes protective lens cover and runs on a CR2032 battery (included). It is covered by Lifetime Limited Warranty.
