The Hawke Sidewinder riflescope is designed for extreme shooting, and has amazing clarity with its 18 layer, fully multi-coated glass. The 30mm scope offers high resolution viewing and a bright sharp picture in all lighting conditions. The lens configurations have been carefully selected to offer the optimum performance in low light conditions, while offering excellent range finding properties.

If you like clear, sharp, crisp images when you look through your scope, then mount this scope on your rifle. Hawke has a reputation for producing superior scopes, and their Sidewinder models deliver some of the best pictures you'll ever see through an optical device. While all scopes give you a picture, the Sidewinder will deliver one that will help you shoot better because you'll be able to distinguish even the smallest details when you home in on your target. Be forewarned…once you use this scope, all your other scopes will suddenly disappoint you.

From its superior glass to the etched glass SR Pro illuminated reticle, you’ll be on your target right away. And because of the robust build of your Hawke scope, you can use it on any firearm or airgun – even those with heavy recoil.

The Sidewinder features a side focusing system designed to Parallax from 10 yds to Infinity. The open Sniper-style turrets are calibrated to 1/4 MOA per click. The reticle illumination brightness adjustment is positioned on the side focus turret. This allows 5 Red and 5 Green settings. The settings have been carefully considered to produce low enough illumination levels for dawn and dusk shooting. If you prefer the solid black reticle, simply turn off the illumination.

The fully multi-coated lenses are waterproof, shockproof, and nitrogen filled for the best possible light transmission.

This scope comes equipped with a 2” side wheel to enhance range finding, a sunshade for bright conditions, and screw-in lens covers to protect the outer lenses.

Please note: If you plan to mount your Hawke Sport Optics riflescope on a spring powered airgun, please choose a scope that features a 30mm tube chassis.

Things I liked: I have a lot of scopes. Mostly for powder burners. This is by far the best of the best. Where do I start? The clarity, the outward appearance, the smooth adjustability of ALL the functions: eye relief, parallax adjustment, power zoom, turret adjustment, the lighted reticle. Even the metal lens covers are just what they should be. This scope is very clear, the adjustments precise. The reticle is glass etched. It is very crisp, sharp, and the mill dots are spaced for maximum usability, in my opinion.

Things I would have changed: Nothing. This is a very business like scope. There are no flying birds, loud graphics, multi color banners instructing you to do this, to do that. It's a bit understated, and I appreciate that.

What others should know: I was amazed that the 2" parallax dial, when used with the supplied "pointer" which I mounted with the clamp openings exactly up and down, like they should be, read the exact yardage when the scope was focused. I focused it at 20 yards, the dial indicated 20. I focused it at 50 yards (measured) and the pointer was at 50. The only thing the very good instruction booklet doesn't tell you is that the little half ring things are to be used to loosen and retighten the metal lens covers when you adjust the eye relief.

Things I liked: Nice bright scope gathers light well . The reticle is one of the best mil dot systems I've used.

Things I would have changed: Nothing to change really. Cost is always a factor but to me it's worth what I paid

Things I liked: Whats not to like Hawk makes some of the best scopes in the business. Clear sharp optics , smooth controls , comes with a 4 inch sunshade , installed it makes it 20 inches long ! Buy it.

Things I would have changed: My opinion its perfect would not change a thing .

What others should know: Mounted this scope on my Gladius 25 long with a one piece mount at 27 oz over a pound and a half it makes a heavy bullpup a little heavier , but the weight doesn't really concern me. I have other airguns that are just as heavy or heavier. I think its a good match for this bullpen. But everyone has there opinions thats what makes us all different .

    Can someone recommend some good flip covers for this scope?

    • Stanley from USA:

      These high-end scopes usually come with good flip-ups but if you wanted to change them, then i use the ones made by weaver they call them polar caps.These are made of soft rubber that are form fitting with a push button release.I have these on my ruger 10/22 and i really like them.
