    Peep sight and fiber optic pins for crossbows

    Why isn't there anyone making a sight that has fiber optic adjustable pins with a peep sight. I understand Trophy Ridge made one about 8 years back, they are very hard to find. Don't get me wrong, I don't mind a scope but if I were to choose between a scope or pins, I would choose pins instead. Would any of you know a company that would make such a sight for crossbows? Thanks !!

    I adapted a 4 pin sight to fit an Excalibur.
    A little bulky but it did work very well

    I also adapted the front sights off an Excalibur

    You might ... look into picatinny rail adapter stuff. Do a search, there's a ton of picatinny gear around. http://compare.ebay.com/like/1208805...Types&var=sbar

    In CO. you have to use a peep sight,scopes are not allowed. Last time I went I used a 1" scope ring and put a wooden dowel in it, just drill a hole in center. For the front sight I used a Ten Point sight bracket and used a cobra optic pin as well as standard brass ten point pin. This was on a Turbo. ON a desert Stryker I never could get the same setup to shoot???? I surely would like to get a 380 IF I could get one to work. I probably wil be going to Co. elk hunting this fall and a little more power would be nice.

    The Bad River Outdoors "Tagged-Out" crossbow sight is likely the best peep type sight for a crossbow. Not sure what brand of bow you shoot, but they even make them for my Scorpyd's. You can read all about it in the links, as well as video's and reviews.

    Looks good vent, probably not legal in some states as it has a battery

    Ken,

    I think you could just remove/unscrew the battery/light, and it would be legal. It still has fiber optics to transmit light that should be legal in most states. The light would come in handy deep in dark timber, but I think the fiber optics would be visable enough without it. The light is probably more for the night time hog and predator hunters.

    They also have the built in range finders for both deer and elk. I checked these out at the Lansing Show, and they are quality thru and thru. If I couldn't use a scope, this would be my choice.
