Luke Cuenco 12.14.20
Hawke Optics has recently added a new First Focal Plane model to their popular Sidewinder Riflescope Line of optics. The FFP MOA model is now available alongside the standard Sidewinder models as an option. With the many advantages of FFP models for long-range shooters, this new addition to the sidewinder line should turn out to be a standout product for the up and coming optics company. Hawke Optics sent out a full press release that is featured below:
HAWKE OPTICS ADDS NEW FFP MOA MODELS TO THE SIDEWINDER RIFLESCOPE LINE
The Sidewinder Line with Advanced H5 Optics Grows with New MOA First Focal Plane Models
Hawke® Optics, a world leader in high performance sporting optics that deliver in the field at an amazing value to consumers, adds to the Sidewinder riflescope line with new models aimed at the long-range shooter.
The new MOA/MOA Sidewinder models, like all the models in the line, have a 30mm main tube and are loaded with new H5 optics that has shooters amazed at the clarity and accuracy of this value-packed scope. H5 brings an ultra-wide 24-degree field of view. The low-dispersion Crown glass has 18-layer multi-coated optics for superb light transmission and clarity. Each Sidewinder has a full four inches of eye relief, letting you get on target faster and easier than ever before.
The Sidewinder FFP MOA models have resettable, precision locking turrets with 1»4 MOA clicks that now have a Witness Window that provides instant visual confirmation of your turret position. You can sharpen up your sights with the index-matched, removeable side wheel focus adjustment and keep your eye on the target while adjusting the zoom with the removeable, magnification throw lever. The reticle is illuminated with high-intensity, adjustable Multi-LED lighting for accuracy in every lighting condition. Tune things in with the fast focus eye bell that has a lock ring to ensure things stay just as you like them.
Newly added to the Sidewinder line are two First Focal Plane models, the 4–16×50 SF and the 6–24×56 SF. Both of these models use the new FFP MOA reticle. The FFP MOA reticle is specifically designed for first focal plane optics with MOA spaced aiming points. The reticle is designed to give closer aiming points than the FFP Half Mil reticle available on existing models. The MOA reticle has crosses etched on the lower half that work as windage aiming points. They can be used for the counting method of zeroing in on target, with each cross positioned 4 MOA apart. On the outside of the reticle, non-illuminated posts with MOA spacing can be used for extreme holdover and for bracketing for distance calculations. These new scopes further bolster the Sidewinder line as the best value in long-range shooting.
All of the Sidewinder models are shock proof, waterproof and dust proof, and are fully nitrogen purged. Additionally, all Sidewinder models are all-caliber rated, so they can withstand the harshest recoil. They come with a removeable side wheel, sunshade, elasticated lens covers, and zoom lever for quick adjustments. All of Hawke’s optics are backed by the Hawke No-Fault Lifetime Warranty.
First Focal Plane models of optics are quite popular as they allow the shooter to make accurate adjustments at all distances simply because they will already have memorized the sub-tension values at the range that the optic was zeroed in. For a lesser-known/less popular manufacturer of optics maker, it is good to see that Hawke Optics is adding highly desirable features to their line up.
