20X 1/2 Mil Dot Reticle:
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 forewarnedonce you use this scope, all your other scopes will suddenly disappoint you.
From its superior glass to the etched glass SR Pro illuminated reticle, youll 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.

Things I liked: Quality and finish are superb. Very easy to adjust and setup
Things I would have changed: The reticle is mil-dot, but the turret adjustments are MOA. Increase the thickness of the crosshairs, Very difficult to see after numerous focusing attempts
Things I liked: Quality construction and excellent product support.
Things I would have changed: Nothing
What others should know: This was a perfect fit for Beeman/Weihrauch HW100 FSB....42mm objective allows a perfect low profile mounting with medium scope rings so you won't be craning your neck or need to elevate cheek rest for sight alignment.
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.
