i have been looking into these as well. I have never used one or seen one, so my question is do i need a scope that has illuminated cross hairs?
I have these lights and no, you don't need illuminated crosshairs. You can see them with the scope. BUT
I got illuminated scopes because, to me at least, black crosshairs tend to disappear on black pigs at night, even with the light. Having red or green crosshairs so you can see them easier helps.
