New nikon bolt p3 replacement

Post by longbow joe » Sat Dec 01, 2018 11:15 pm

Anyone know anything about the new nikon . p3 bolt replacement scope. I was ordering a bolt for my nephew and not in stock but this is the "upgrade " model. I punched in a zombie and specs on spot on all seemed same as a bolt on my 330.my guess is it probably has 40% more plastic?

Good find Joe, but I'm thinking the opposite. The turret caps and the eye piece are now aluminum. That's the only thing I don't like about my bolts, is the chinsey plastic turret caps with gold writing on them.

I like the Nikon bolt. It has much better glass.
A touch of frost has heightened your awareness and your heart steadily beats in anticipation. Your senses are suddenly alert to the movement on the forest floor and you realize that the moment of harvest is at hand.

Yep I can't use Hawke glass but that's just me.

The downside to the bolt is the lack of speed adjustable aiming points.

If Nikon had a crossbow scope with an illuminated reticle and speed adjustment they would dominate the crossbow scope market. :)

What else did you look at? My Excalibur that I bought came with a UTG scope on it. Thinking of eventually upgrading it for better glass but I prefer looking through a scope to see if it will meet what I am looking for. I looked through a Truglo and redfield here locally and those were suhweeet.....

Two bolts and a factory deadzone, which, are really good scopes for factory offerings. Once I figure out what I'm doing with the Banshee, it'll probably get a bolt as well.

I like to keep things all the same across the board.

Deadzone by Excal? They don't seem to make the bolts anymore from what I have seen or they are hard to come by.

They are now under the P linup. I'm just learning this the other day as well. But if the changes are what suggested and the price is the same, that's a big win in my eyes.
Best part about the bolt is the 11OZ it weights.

So you are saying this model replaced the bolt then? https://www.amazon.com/NIKW9-Prostaff-Crossbow-3x32-Matte/dp/B07FNQSVVR/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1543882453&sr=8-3&keywords=nikon+bolt+xr+crossbow+scope
