Default Ravin crossbow scope

I recently purchased a Ravin crossbow scope, It appears to be awesome. My question is why are these scopes not logo or branded in any way? NIB from %100 feedback E bay U.S.A dealer. No literature or any manufacturers information in the sealed box. It seems similar in all ways to the Hawke scopes except for the reticle that i like better than Hawke's Where are they made and where would you sent them for repair? Thanks for any info you may have.

I don't know the answer to your question,

But I would be suspicious of a scope with no marking, paper work, etc

Maybe call Ravin and ask

Again, I'd call Ravin and ask. Here's the number and an email to make it easy for you.



Then let us know what you find out. A couple quick searches online revealed that it's likely not a hawke, but designed to be similar .

Several reviews said that the hawkes were better and brighter. But that the Ravin scope was a solid option as well.

Do you have a Ravin bow? How do you like it?

I found the answer at the dealer, The crossbow dealer is up grading the expensive Ravin packages with Hawke xb 30 scopes. The 1.5x5 IR speed Dialed scopes that come standard with this package have never been installed. They seem to be great scopes! Surely an up grade to my $249 Barnett Whitetail package. For $89 its asuper clear scope, great illuminated reticle and speed selector, fast focus as well.

I was under the impression that Raven had a Vortex scope up top.
