Good News and Bad News

19 posts in this topic

The bad news is that we have totally sold out of every Hawke Tactical and Eclipse scope in the line. Even the stateside Hawke warehouse is sold out. These two models of Hawke scopes have been selling like crazy and it has been very difficult to keep them in stock. The Hawke warehouse is presently awaiting another shipment from England and as soon as they arrive we (RedHunterLLC) will have priority status for our share of the booty. I'll let you guys know when the new scopes are in. Sorry for the inconvenience.The good news is.....that the word is getting out on Hawke optics.

Might need a scope coming up. Is it OK to ask people here, owners, what they think of the Hawke scopes? Like to buy something from someone on the forum (Desert Dog) but want to get some opinion on the product other than the distributor as well. If there's a better thread, I can go there....

Please....ask away. I am proud of Hawke glass and I know there are some owners here in the forum. I think the best reviews come from owners. Let it roll Goose. Don't take my word for it. :signs1111cr:

How much adjustment, how many MOA is there for elevation and windage?I am looking at the Sidewinder 30 Tactical 4.5-14x42...

The Hawke Sidewinder Tactical 4.5-14X42 will give you a total of 80 1/4" clicks of elevation (40 up and 40 down) and the windage is the same.

On the Members forum I posted pics of my 30-30 with its new Hawke HD IR. I zeroed it in this last Tuesday and love it. Does the elusive hat come with that model? :smiley_turkey_pop_up_log:ps. maybe Shooterjohn would move my post from the Members Forum to the scope & Optics form?

You will be impressed. It brought new life to my old 30-30 and my 35 loves it too.

Hi Red, I called a place in Oregon to follow up and, like you, they are out. They told me they'll have new scopes in two weeks. Yes, the Hawke scope is quickly catching on. The gunsmith I use spoke very highly of it and liked it better than the Bushnell Elite 6500. The Hawke is an impressive scope regardless of cost. Cost gives it the biggest bang for your buck!

Red, I'm picking up a lever action .45-70 and was planning on not putting a scope on it. What would you do?

I just noticed your post and question Jim. Naturally, my opinion is free and worth exactly what you paid for it...LOL However, if I were going to scope a 45-70, I would go for a long eye-relief scout scope arrangement. It really works great on the carbine pictured below. It is very quick and keeps your eye well away from the scope. You can also use two eyes when following a target.The rifle below is scoped but my Marlin lever in .35 Remington has Williams ghost ring iron sights. The intended use of the .35 is pigs and deer. It's a good, hard hitting caliber and I have no problem putting the lead where I want it at 200-yards, especially with the Hornady Lever-evolution ammo. You'll have to decide exactly why you bought the 45-70 and what your intended purpose is. Once you have decided exactly what you'll be doing with it, you can set it up accordingly.
