I replaced the scope that came on my Carbon Express 390 piledriver with a Hawke 3 by 32 with the 10 yard increment horizontal cross hairs. It is clearer then the one that came on the crossbow. I kind of wish I would have gotten the Hawke with the red and green lit dots, not that the one I have doesn't do the job. I just didn't check around what was available.

I went to a regular rifle scope 1 x 4.5 power featuring thick crosshairs then very thin at the cross, I went with dusk to dark bushnell. absolutely love it. much clearer and less cluttered than xbow scopes

I too use a rifle scope on my Tenpoint. Its just a 3-9x40 Dusk to dawn. I just dont like the illuminated dots and prefer the magnification.

I will recommend Pinty Rangefinder Illuminated Optical Rifle Scope.
Weight = 1.4 lbs
Magnification = 3x-9x
5 Levels of brightness
lens width = 40 mm

Lumix speedring 5x32 by killer instinct. Only $120 and easily the best scope I've used, replaced my Hawke for it. Gives a nice wide angle view even on high velocity crossbows, and is VERY good in low light situations. It has a speedring that you can adjust from 270fps-450fps, a blue and red luminated reticles with adjustabl4 brightness, and it has (i believe) 8 or 9 dots.
