Re: Hawke Sidewinder Information?
I just bought the Sidewinder Tactical 4.5-14X42 last year. I absolutly love the scope! I bought it even though I've never seen one. So it was a little risky but i heard a lot of guys say good things about them. The guys that did some reviews on them liked the glass and the light that they hold in low light conditions. I would very much agree with them. The big question they had is how they hold up. Mine is holding up great I've had no problems at all. I took it on a elk hunt last year and the weather was AWFUL my whole gun was soaked as well as the scope. It got very cold and things started to ice up. When the weather finally cleared, I made a 375 yard shot on a elk. I had no problems with the scope. It took a beating that day. Hit the elk right where i thought I would.
Its a well built scope. Super solid. I think it is a very high quality scope. You'll notice that the scope is HEAVEY! But i didn't mind that. I am very impressed with it and will buy many more! Let me know if you have any other questions
