Bushnell Holosight XLP

Postby Guest on Thu Sep 21, 2006 6:28 pm

I just bought a Holosight XLP, the newest version that takes AAA batteries. I actually mounted it on my shotgun today. When looking at the crosshair reticle, can you sometimes see a little red glare inside the viewing range? It seems like I'm seeing a little reflection from the reticle...maybe it just works that way. Mind you I was looking through it in low light conditions.

For instance, I'll see the crosshairs fine in my view. Directly above the crosshair will be a real faint 1/2 of an image crosshair. Its almost like theres some reflection going on. It's not terribly obtrusive, but more annoying. Thats the best I can explain it.

Any users of this scope, could I have your input on this model and the quirks that go with it.

I'm wondering if the red glare above the crosshair is due to the hood??
