Designed for mid to long-range use, the Hawke Sport Optics 4.5-14x42 Sidewinder Riflescope boasts a wide and powerful zoom range with a side parallax turret with an adjustment range from 10 yards out to infinity. 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 rifle and round to make 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 42mm objective and 18-layer anti-reflection, fully multi-coated optics draw 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. 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 the scope is a lightweight and durable anodized magnesium alloy housing with a robust 30mm one-piece maintube that is nitrogen-filled and O-ring sealed to be water and fogproof. To get the most out of the scope's long-range capabilities, a 4" screw-on sun shade is included to reduce glare and increase image quality, and a 2" removable side adjustment wheel can be installed on the parallax turret for precise adjustments even when wearing gloves.
