Hawke Sidewinder ED Riflescope & Turrets
Complete Your Purchase
Long-range shooting has a very specific set of requierments when it comes to optics. The Sidewinder series of scopes delivers performance and features at an almost unbelievable value. Packed with performance enhancing features including patented locking and interchangeable turrets give the user an option to customise the click value from ¼ MOA to either ⅛ MOA or 1⁄10 MRAD to suit your shooting preference.
Designed for full-bore target and FT shooting, Sidewinder ED's are packed with performance enhancing features required for accuracy. This high magnification side focus is designed to meet the very specific requirements and demands of target shooters with precision engineered components, a unique illuminated (red) glass etched reticle and chromatic abberation reducing Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass.
The Sidewinder ED features the TMX reticle, developed for long range target shooting and around the common principles of Mil Dot spacing when magnification is set to 20x.
Turrets: Interchangeable, locking and resettable exposed turrets allow for quick, yet precise adjustments. Hawke's patented turrets can be removed and exchanged without exposing the internal elements to dirt, water or moisture and will keep the nitrogen purged gas inside to prevent fogging in cold weather conditions.
ED (Extra-low Dispersion) Glass: ED lenses are the most effective way to improve image quality and stop colour fringing (chromatic aberration). ED glass allows for better concentration and direction of light wavelengths, which give a significantly sharper image and improved contrast of colours and light. ED glass is incorporated into the objective element assembly, produces clear and crisp images with reduced chromatic aberration. Crucial when using high power zoom.
Multi-Coatings: 18 layer fully multi-coated optics. Each lens is multi-coated throughout the optical system with microscopic layers of magnesium fluoride - guaranteeing sharpness, clarity, reduced flare and high light transmission. Threaded objective designed to accomodate supplied sunshade and flip-up cover.
Side Focus Wheel: Range finding and parallax free shooting is assisted thanks to the oversized 4 inch side focus wheel that attaches directly on to the central spine using Hawke's patented side wheel system. An optional 6 inch side wheel is available.
High Power Zoom: 10-50x magnification with intergrated soft contact rubber zoom with smooth and precise operation. Magnification markings precisely calibrated.
Illumination Rheostat: Precise control of the reticle illumination is helped with the stepless rheostat positioned at 45 degrees on the ocular. Levels have been calibrated from bright to ultra-low.
Locking 'Fast Focus' Ocular: Set it and forget it. Quickly achieve sharp reticle focus and then lock it down to avoid accidently adjusting dioptre settings.
Each turret type has exact matched internal components to ensure precise click adjustments. The ability to replace turrets ensure a scope that will last the test of time, no matter how much dialling between distances is needed.
By simply unscrewing the locking collar the turret can be lifted off and removed from the scope. When removed the scope remains sealed against air or moisture ingress. Each turret has indexed teeth to ensure that the location and alignment are kept during installation. Push down on the turret, screw the locking collar back down and the scope is ready for use.
A built-in scale shows clearly how many full rotations have been made when dialling between distances.
Each turret is equipped with a locking dial on its top, so no accidental click movement can happen during transport or use.
The TMX reticle was developed for long range target shooting and around the common principles of Mil-Dot spacing when magnification is set to 20x. As with Mil-Dot spacing, the series of larger hash marks represent a unit of angle called an mrad (milliradian) or mil for short. This is equal to a gap of 3.6 inches at 100 yards or 3 feet and 1,000 yards. Allowing for 8 mil spacing of hold-over to the outer edge of the field of view, along with 3 mil spacing of windage in each direction, the TMX is a versatile reticle that provides aim points no matter how extreme the conditions.
