Parker Red Hot PinPoint scope?

Parker Bows - RED HOT Pin Point (3X) Scope

Is anyone familiar with this scope? It seems like it might be pretty great for our purposes. Sort of a built in riser...

That's a pretty good item right there. Seems to be $160-200 depending on where you get it from.

I'm wondering how well its ranging compares to something like the HHR.

Twenty to eighty yards is a lot of adjustment for an elevation turret which is how this seems to work. If they can squeeze that kind of adjustment out of a turret then that would be a great deal all in one unit.

I imagine that 20-80 yards is probably for crossbow bolts and not paintballs.

The HHA Optimizer states the same 20-80 yard figure.

You mean First Strikes. I'd be curious to see a comparison of the travel differences between a bolt and a FS round, at say 5* incline.

Looks like $160 is the price to beat. If it gives the adjustment range of the HHA it seems like a super deal.

Tha's true but they reach their respective elevation increases in entirely ways. The HHA is not a scope; it's just an adjustable picatinny rail. This scope looks like it makes its elevation changes by elevation turret adjustment.

Two things come to mind. The first is durability. Long-range shooters know that the first thing to fail on scope is the elevation turret because it is constantly being adjusted for various target distances. That's the whole reason for the existence of adjustable elevation platforms like the Cold Shot 150. The HHA also eliminates wear and tear on your scope adjustment turret. When the elevation adjustment turret fails from overuse the scope is usually junk.

Second, while the HHA is advertised as having enough minutes of angle to shoot a crossbow bolt from 20-80 yards, with a first strike that range is really about 20-60 yards. I suspect the same will be true with this.

Keeping those two things in mind, the price may make this a viable option.

Parker Pin Point Scope Review

Good review on your scope. Made by Hawke it appears. Very positive review, at least for crossbow use.

Remember, the multi-reticle Hawke scopes will give you much the same ability to shoot at different ranges by using a different crosshair and they don't require you to turn any knobs. The big advantage with this scope is that it is a true variable power scope that can actually be used at different magnifications, unlike the Hawke scopes.
