Ok so my 13 year old has me in a sticky situation. He decided it was a good idea to remove the battery cover on my Parker 3 red dot scope.....then he lost it. We have tore the house up with no success.

The 21st I drew out for PC so it looks like I need to go ahead and front a new scope so I can get sighted in and get some trigger time before the hunt.

Any suggestions on what to get? I really want something with multiple dots. Trying to stay $150 or below and hopefully something I dont have to order offline. I have a Gander Mountain, Dicks Sporting Goods, Academy Sports, Sportsmans Warehouse, and Bass Pro within driving range.

Any advice will help!

I'd have to say I love the Excalibur varizone. Not a red dot though.

You could contact Parker and let them know your problem and I would bet they would be more than glad to send you a replacement cover.

Doesn't have to be a red dot as long as I have my different points of aim. I will look into the Excalibur. Might even look into the rangefinder mount \:\)

I thought about that but:

1. I'm not the original owner
2. The crossbow is decently old, a Parker Buck Buster
3. I really need it by tomorrow so I can sight in and get some practice before the hunt. Only way for me to do that is a 30 minute drive to my parents. City Code Enforcement don't like me as it is. Let's just say city limits - Deer - Tree - residential lol

I'm using the Nikon crossbow scope this year.
So far, I really like it. WAY better than the red dot that came with the Barnett.
