Our best selling scope
just got better!

For over a decade, the Sidewinder has been a byword for performance and reliability. Created with almost every conceivable option, the Sidewinder is seen as a multi-discipline optic with a wide range of uses. The result: our most popular riflescope ever.

Be it winning target competitions on the world stage, or trekking on a hunt through the plains of Africa, the Sidewinder feels perfectly at home and is totally adaptable to suit your shooting discipline.

This all new Sidewinder takes things to another level. Redesigned from the ground up, with our H5 Optics, the all new Sidewinder is a huge upgrade. Lighter, stronger, 4 inch (100mm) eye relief, premium crown glass, improved illumination and a new locking turret system with witness window. 10 variations available, including FFP and SFP.

SIDEWINDER SYSTEM H5

Hawke's new System H5 optics boast a stunning 24° ultra-wide field of view with generous 4 inch (100mm) eye relief. This projects a high volume 'eye-box' image that passes through the scope, bringing you closer to the action than ever before.

Improved sharpness and clarity provides incredible accuracy and unrivalled down range performance. 18 layer multiple lens coatings allow for the intense light transmission required from top optical devices.

High grade, low dispersion crown glass is used throughout to create crisp first and second focal plane optical systems that have minimal field curvature and distortion.

Special Features

EXPOSED, LOCKING TURRETS
WITH WITNESS WINDOW

The Sidewinder’s new push/pull locking elevation turret has a ‘witness window’ to ensure you always know which revolution your turret is on.

This is especially useful for shooters who like to dial out to longer distances and need to keep track of how many revolutions have been made. As the elevation turret passes through each full rotation, the internal scale travels up or down and can be seen at a glance. No more uncertainty or lengthy click counting needed to get back to your original zero. The turrets are either 1⁄10 MRAD or 1⁄4 MOA and are easily reset to 0 after sighting in.

ZOOM MAGNIFICATION
THROW LEVER

All models are supplied with a removable throw lever that allows you to instantly adjust the magnification.

This is vital in the field when reaction speed is crucial or weather conditions demand you to be wearing gloves.

SIDE FOCUS WITH REMOVABLE
INDEX-MATCHED SIDE WHEEL

An all new index-matched side wheel (included*) makes parallax adjustment more accurate than ever before. The oversized wheel locks into place ensuring a solid and more responsive rotation. This allows for the finest focus adjustment and perfect parallax error correction.

All models are focus adjustable from 10 yards (9 metres) up to infinity.

*2.5”/65mm included with 17140/17150. 4”/100mm included with other models.

FAST FOCUS EYEBELL
WITH LOCK RING

Set it and forget it. Quickly achieve sharp reticle focus and then lock it down to avoid accidentally adjusting dioptre settings. This simple yet essential feature is something that is omitted on far too many riflescopes and can lead to focusing issues when it comes to pulling the trigger.

By locking the ocular focus in place you can be sure that when the time comes you have one more thing in check and the confidence you will be on target.

Optical Features

FIRST FOCAL PLANE (FFP) AND SECOND FOCAL PLANE (SFP)

Sidewinder offers a selection of first and second focal plane optical systems. FFP models ensure your holdover aim points stay true no matter what magnification you are using – when the magnification is increased, the reticle increases in size along with the target image. SFP models see the reticle stay the same size to your eye during magnification adjustment, meaning you maintain a finer reticle for target accuracy when on highest magnification setting.

ULTRA-WIDE ANGLE (24°) FIELD OF VIEW

Up to 20% wider, which is the key to success for rapid target acquisition and ease of use.

4 INCH (100mm) EYE RELIEF

Provides a generous and comfortable eye relief at all magnifications, ensuring a safe viewing distance from the riflescope, ideal for high recoil and magnum calibres.

HIGH VOLUME 'EYE-BOX'

A thin FOV edge and larger eye-box creates an easy to achieve full image for faster more comfortable targeting.

MINIMAL FIELD CURVATURE

The high-end optical system reduces the effect of curvature and blurriness seen at the edge of view.

DISTORTION FREE

Crown glass is used to remove radial distortion, creating a flatter field of view and removal of barrel distortion, to ensure optimum quality of image.

FULLY MULTI-COATED

18 layers, treated with multiple lens coatings including ion-assisted coating allows for highest light transmission and a high level of abrasion resistance, exceeding military standards for hardness and durability.

LOW DISPERSION CROWN GLASS

Crown glass is a high-quality optical glass used in precision lenses for a low dispersion property that combats chromatic aberration. It is also lead free resulting in lighter weight optical systems.

Mechanical Features

30mm MONO-TUBE CHASSIS

We use 6061-T6 aluminium with a hard heat treatment for superior strength. It remains resistant to corrosion even when the surface is scratched. The aircraft-grade, aluminium chassis creates a stronger and lighter riflescope.

DUAL LED RETICLE ILLUMINATION

The new custom designed dual LED illumination system delivers intense brightness to ensure the reticle can be seen in bright daylight. There are six levels of brightness with off settings between each level. The lowest setting prevents low-light blindness from overpowered illumination.

WATERPROOF, FOG PROOF & SHOCKPROOF

Fully sealed for waterproofing and purged with nitrogen gas to fog proof. Assembled in a climatically controlled environment. Heavy duty recoil proof lens assemblies utilised throughout, with recoil testing to 1000G.

FLIP-UP COVER AND ACCESSORY COMPATIBLE

Compatible with Hawke’s exclusive Professional Flip-Up Covers, allowing protection for your lenses no matter the conditions. Additional side wheels are available in two sizes offering great flexibility (4”/100mm and 2.5”/65mm).

SUPPLIED WITH SUNSHADE

The supplied 4 inch (100mm) sunshade screws effortlessly into the objective end of the riflescope and keeps out unwanted glare during bright days, or when the sun is low.

Reticles

Accurate, multiple aimpoint reticles ensure you are ready for any situation. The all-new Sidewinder series benefits from laser etched glass reticles that deliver precise and detailed aimpoints for holdover, ranging and windage corrections. A selection of first and second focal plane optical systems stretch the boundary of what is possible in these long range optics of choice.
