5.0 5.0

By John from USA on 2014-06-27 22:15:32

Things I liked:

Lightweight, very very clear and sharp. Mildot reticle is a bit cluttered but useful with 1/2 dots. Great glass all the way to 24X ! The range markings on the sidewheel are actually accurate ! Lens covers are clear and it's shootable with the far one on (objective) and the near one is quick to flip up.

Things I would have changed:

Turrets, I would prefer taller ones that would accept a tape but that's a personal preference. Lens covers don't fold all the way back to flat, which means they stick up like almost every other cover, which means it won't last long. Ocular / Eyepiece lens does not have a stop to secure it and keep it from moving. Turrets are not resettable to zero.

What others should know:

This is the clearest scope I've owned and it stays sharp all the way to 24X. It is equal to my Mueller and better than my AEON, Hawke Sidewinder 8-32x56, and my Hawke 6.5-20. I bought it because it's light and spring rated. Great glass and it passed my "box" test, although the clicks aren't as well defined as a sidewinder or my Mueller. Great simple scope, especially so as it's springer rated.

Things I liked:

The low weight, short length, side focus and mil-dot reticle.

Things I would have changed:

The glass (plastic?) is from Korea. They need to use better quality.

What others should know:

This scope had all of the right features I wanted. It was a shame that the clarity was pretty bad. Unusable at full power, like looking thru the bottom of a Coke bottle. To confirm what I thought, I handed it to a friend shooting right next to me and asked his opinion of my new scope without giving mine. I knew he'd be honest. He took about 3 shots, handed it back and said "this is the worst scope I've ever looked through". And he's right. It gets a little clearer at lower powers, around 14x, but then why pay for the extra magnification if it's unusable? Last Hawke scope I will ever buy, as none of them have impressed me with their optics, including the expensive side focus models.

    Things I liked:

    The sight picture is very clear. Mil dots make it easy to quickly allow for changes in distance. Great scope for the price. I just mounted it a day ago so I haven't had the chance to use it much at this point. Everything I have seen so far is great.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing to change at this point. Good scope for the price.

    What others should know:

    Make sure you get the proper height mounts for your rifle. I mounted it on an Air Venturi Bull Pup and needed just a little more clearance to be comfortable on the cheek rest.

    Things I liked:

    Good quality at an affordable price.

    Things I would have changed:

    If it came with rings.

    What others should know:

    Check for parallax even after adjusted. I had to set yardage to 40 even though the actual range was 50. This causes the target to be slightly blurry. Not a big problem, most scopes have this problem to some degree. I had the scope at full power.

    Things I liked:

    Bright clear image at full magnification. Turrets hold zero.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing.

    What others should know:

    I put this riflescope on a .22 LR Varmint Match Target Rifle. It's set to full magnification for F-Class & UBR matches. I vary the magnification for metallic silhouette depending on the target. I don't mind having to loosen two Philips screws to zero the turrets because they dependably hold zero.

    Things I liked:

    Glass is Clear, turrets adjust easy, SF is a little stiff but I'm sure it will smooth out with use.

    Things I would have changed:

    Maybe a little smoother SF from the start

    What others should know:

    Hawke Optics are a good value for the money, it's pretty tough to go wrong with one of their scopes. I put this on my AirForce Condor SS in .25cal ..80 yard critters, no problem, even the 124 yard critter showed up very clear and dispatched cleanly.

    Things I liked:

    Crystal clear, Mil Dot reticle and solid construction. I absolutely love this scope. I'm getting two more.

    Things I would have changed:

    Turrets should not need a phillips screw driver to re set to zero. Scope should come with flip up lens covers.

    What others should know:

    You will need a small phillips screw driver to re set the turrets to zero. It really is a wonderful scope for the money. Hard to beat.

  • 4.0 4.0

    5.0 5.0

    Things I liked:

    Great scope, very clear optics side wheel AO and very fine cross hairs with 1/2 mil dot markings. All in a sleek good looking package. Zeroed with only a few turns of the turrets. Very positive movement with the elevation and L;R adjustment.

    Things I would have changed:

    Flip up caps would be nice, and see through cross hairs like on some of the more expensive Hawke scopes would be nice but bot a deal breaker.

  • 4.0 4.0

    4.0 4.0

    Things I liked:

    The reticle and the side focus.

    Things I would have changed:

    Have it come with the small wheel for the side focus as it can be hard to turn.

    What others should know:

    Be sure you get mounts with enough clearance for the turret swell on the bottom of this scope under the turrets as it seems to be extra tall. I bought BKL 1pc mounts and it bottomed out before hitting the tube in the rings. If using 2pc mounts it is no issue.

  • 4.0 4.0

    3.0 3.0

    Things I liked:

    Very clear lens and fast focus is very welcome for tri-focal eyes

    Things I would have changed:

    I should have ordered the illuminated reticles. Have them on my other scopes and didn't realize how much I have come to depend on them in low light. It would be nice if all of this series came with them.

    Things I liked:

    Good clear scope. If you are hunting keep on low power or target is very hard to find on 24 power.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing

    What others should know:

    18 through 24 power is clear but I have to use it off my benchrest.

  • 3.0 3.0

    4.0 4.0

    Things I liked:

    What i like most is the price point. I also like the 24x zoom, quick side focus and half mildots.

    Things I would have changed:

    It get a little blurry on 24 power even when focused perfectly. It would benefit from a sunshade because if you shoot in any bright lighting it tends to not bode well with the optic. Also a medium side wheel would help alot as well. I also notice your POI will. Hange if you mess with the eye focus piece a bunch.

    What others should know:

    This a good scope for the money if you dont mind the few thing i mentioned above. The turrets are very smooth and adjust very well no problem on that front. If i were to buy this again i would also buy a sunshade with it the side focus wheel isnt as big of a deal but would also benefit from that. All that being said its a 200 dollar scope a little above average but it is not a leupold or any other higher end scope.

  • 5.0 5.0

    5.0 5.0

    Things I liked:

    Very smooth side focus wheel. No illumination. Light weight. Power adjustment easy to change. Clear glass out to 24x. Ocular focus good. Elevation/windage adjust with soft clicks. Easy to sight in and use.

    Things I would have changed:

    Locking ring on ocular adjustment. Lens caps stiff to open. Eye relief can be fussy. PA needs to stock the sun shade.

    What others should know:

    Very easy to zero. Only took ten shots. I like the 1/2mil marks. They are great for adjusting changes without turning turrets. Just need to remember add/subtract value at set ranges. Overall a great product at its price point.

    Things I liked:

    it looks good on my condor, side parallax

    Things I would have changed:

    the glass its horrible, and the lens caps fall off they are way too big.

    What others should know:

    this scope is junk, at 16x my el cheapo $89.99 centerpoint 4x16x40 adventure class has a much clearer and crisper sight picture. very dissatisfied with hawk they are just a bunch of hype. Anyone who gave this scope a good rating has obviously never looked through a zeiss conquest or a luepold vx or a cheap centerpoint for that matter. awful, just plain awful!

    Things I liked:

    I have the 6 x 24 scope, and it works pretty well. I like the half mil dot reticle, helps when shooting at various distances. I keep it on 10x magnification most of the time and its very clear.

    Things I would have changed:

    The clarity does drop off noticeably after about 18x, but it is still useable. The lens caps could fit a little more snug, I plan on replacing them at some point.
