This is definitely one of the finest crossbow scopes currently on the market.

First of all…

It’s fogproof, shockproof and waterproof, which means it’s excellent for harsh weather.

The users we contacted told us they didn’t have to treat the scope with any coating to fogproof it, which is definitely a big plus.

Under normal wear and tear, you could say this crossbow scope is practically indestructible.

Well done there!

It has 3X magnification and it can zero in on the target from up to 60 yards. It also transmits 92% of the available light and the eye relief is great.

The only problem here is the Nikon Bolt XR doesn’t have an illuminated reticle, which means it won’t be very good when it’s too dark.

And the reticle itself has dots, which are very hard to see – even under normal shooting conditions. You will need some time to get used to this.

However…

The users have pointed out it performs perfectly with plenty of daylight.

The manufacturer claims this scope has the field of view is 35.6 at 100 yards, and this is something the users agree upon. Also, most of them say zeroing in on a target is very easy with this scope (a great thing to know!).

In addition to this…

The Nikon Bolt XR is very easy to mount. We’ve talked to several people about this and they all say mounting the scope is a breeze.

Having said that…

This scope doesn’t come with the mounting rings. A few users have complained about this. It’s not a negative product feature per se, but it’s a bit annoying because you have to buy the rings separately.

The good thing is you can use rings from other scopes, as they fit perfectly. And once you’ve got the rings, mounting the scope is done within seconds.

As for the sighting in…

The Nikon Bolt XR is very easy to sight in – for crossbows shooting less than 350FPS (feet per second). The zero-reset adjustments on the turret enable you to remember your sight-in point easily.

This crossbow scope is reliable and praised by so many users. When it comes to durable scopes that absolutely do the job, this is the one you need.

It comes with a limited lifetime guarantee. More information here.
