Hawke Sport Optics 6-24x56 +Sidewinder Riflescope (20x 1/2 Mil Dot Illuminated Reticle)
Key Features
  • 20x 1/2 Mil Dot Illuminated Reticle
  • 5 Intensity Levels in Red or Green
  • 30mm One-Piece Maintube
  • 1/4 MOA / Click Impact Point Correction
Designed for long-range use with exceptional low-light capabilities, the Hawke Sport Optics 8-32x56 +Sidewinder Riflescope boasts a wide and powerful zoom range that brings subjects in close while preserving a wider field of view and exit pupil, especially at max magnification, versus models with higher zooms. Its illuminated reticle can be displayed in either red or green with five intensity levels for each color to give you the ability to customize the reticle to your preference or specific situation. The reticle is glass-etched so it will not only resist fading and shifting over time, but will show as a conventional black reticle when the illumination is turned off. Compatible with Hawke's Ballistic Reticle Calculator, the reticle can be calibrated to your gun and round to make long-range shooting even more precise. This +Sidewinder is designed with a generous eye box to give you ample room for recoil when using the high-caliber rifles required for accurate long-distance shooting.

Designed for long-range use with exceptional low-light capabilities, the Hawke Sport Optics 8-32x56 +Sidewinder Riflescope boasts a wide and powerful zoom range that brings subjects in close while preserving a wider field of view and exit pupil, especially at max magnification, versus models with higher zooms.

The reticle is glass-etched so it will not only resist fading and shifting over time, but will show as a conventional black reticle when the illumination is turned off. Compatible with Hawke's Ballistic Reticle Calculator, the reticle can be calibrated to your gun and round to make long-range shooting even more precise. This +Sidewinder is designed with a generous eye box to give you ample room for recoil when using the high-caliber rifles required for accurate long-distance shooting.

Versus smaller objective scopes, the +Sidewinder’s 56mm objective and 18-layer anti-reflection, fully multi-coated optics draws in generous amounts of light. It provides you with bright and clear, high-contrast images during the pre-dawn and post-dusk hours when many game animals are most active, even if you have to stalk your prey through heavily canopied areas during those periods. Locking exposed turrets and A fast-focus collar, rubber-coated zoom ring, and knurled rheostat control, along with exposed turrets, allow you to quickly adapt to rapidly changing situations. Complementing the performance of this scope is a robust 30mm one-piece maintube, as well as a lightweight and durable anodized magnesium alloy housing that is nitrogen-filled and O-ring sealed to be water and fogproof. To get the most out of this scope's long-range capabilities, the +Sidewinder includes a 4" screw-on sun shade that helps reduce glare and increase image quality, and a 4" removable side adjustment wheel can be installed on the parallax turret for precise adjustments even when wearing gloves.
