Hawke Sidewinder 30 FFP scopes

Recommended Posts

Are there any comments as I'm seriously thinking about getting one for my TX. They are expensive but the specs are good. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

I went for the 6-24x50 in the end (£425 from ebay). I fitted it yesterday and tested it. Great scope although the glass starts to get a tiny bit milky at the upper end of the mag range and the reticle lines are a bit thick in the same area. Because of this, I would recommend the 4-16x50 model for air rifles.

Turrets are spot on. Range markings appear to be pretty accurate but more  testing is needed. Build quality looks and feels good. Ocular focus, mag and parallax dials firm but very smooth. IR is very good and illumination is even across the reticle.

All in all, I'm very impressed except the price.

If you want FFP you won't do much better in this price range.

Glad to report the sidewinder FFP is spot on. Very easy to use, Turrets are bang on and the range markings are accurate aswell. I'm looking forward to getting used to it and getting the most out of it.

Pleased it has worked out for you, to be honest had I seen this post earlier, I would have said to seriously look at the Hawke Airmax scopes, really really good and designed for air rifles. Enjoy your new scope.

Have you had a look at one on a Rifle philpot?

I would also if it was me look at the Airmax 30 SF

Good luck

All the very best

I have both the Hawke Airmax 30 SF and the Endurance Renos which I bought this year, very impressed indeed.
