The Sidewinder's 30mm body encompasses a high quality optical system with ETE (Edge to Edge) coated glass. This in turn provides sharp, bright and high resolution viewing in all light conditions.
The lens configurations have been carefully selected to offer the optimum performance in low light conditions, whilst offering excellent range finding properties - The Sidewinder features a side focusing system designed to parallax from 10yds to infinity.
By popular demand, the Sidewinder 30 is available with either a Hawke SR6/SR12 reticle or a Half Mil-dot true at 10x.
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.
The open sniper style turrets are calibrated to 1/4 M.O.A per click.To adjust the turrets the whole assembly is pulled up to unlock, then once adjusted they can be securely locked into position. The turrets are simply reset to "0" by loosening a hex screw on the top.
All Sidewinders come with a large 100mm side wheel, to enhance range finding, sunshade for overly bright conditions and metal flip-up covers to protect the outer lenses.

I choose this over the Nikko Stirling Target Master and the MTC Optisan EVX. Positives: build quality and finish. Parallax range finding is superb. Functional, uncluttered sight picture. Clear, precise markings on zoom and turrets etc. Ultra smooth sidewheel operation. Negatives: the fit in the mounts was not as snug as is usual with my chosen brand - Hawke's own might be better. Battery cap was very fiddly to replace. I'd prefer the flip-up covers to have been an optional extra.

CZ.22LR, subsonics with SR6 reticule, 13x mag zeroed at 50yards, aim points are top 35, central 50, lower 60,70,80,90 & 100 yards (if not exactly then close to) at 6x(ish) middle is 50, lower points are 70,90 & 110 yards. Image is clear and bright also excellent with Pulsar Challenger GS1 NV. I also use Leopold’s VX-R & VX3L which are a lot lighter, thinner reticules, twice the price, can’t focus as close and reticule aim points that can’t match (for a .22 subsonic) the SR6. Recommended!!

I have used this scope for vermin & target shooting for over a year now on my Marlin .22RF, I have been nothing but impressed. I can shoot the same hole at 50 yds. The included sun shield is a really handy item, I mostly shoot at night but the shield keeps the rain off the glass. It keeps point of aim if on lowest or full power mag, The included large focus wheel makes night time use very easy. Well built & easy to use. I'm more than happy so am looking to buy another Hawke.
