Hawke Sport Optics, with its wide selection of different optics for every purpose, hasn't failed to impress at this year's Shot Show. I visited them at their booth and left feeling excited about all the new launches.
Updated Frontier line of riflescopes
They decided to upgrade their well-known line of affordable but premium riflescopes Frontier by adding the new exposed tactical turret design. The riflescopes feature zero-stop, resettable and lockable turrets with a return-to-zero function in multiple configurations – 1/10 MRAD, ½ MOA or ¼ MOA. They are available in FFP (First Focal Plane) and SFP (Second Focal Plane) configurations. Hawke said they will hit the market in April 2019, priced from $449 to $899 for US market.
Airmax Compact 30 SF
With the air rifle market expanding, Hawke introduced new Compact 30 SF Airmax riflescopes which fit perfectly on a compact and modern hunting air rifle. You can choose among three models: 3-12x40 SF available for the price of $359, the 4-16x44 model priced $379 and 6-24x50 model for $399. All the models come with Hawke’s no-fault lifetime warranty, red illumination and 1/10 MRAD capped, resettable target turrets for an easy return to zero. The scopes have a wide field of view and shortened eye-relief for use with shorter rifles.
Endurance laser rangefinders
They expended their line of laser rangefinders with a brand-new series Endurance. There are three models available. The first one, 700, can read the distances from 5 to 766 yards (4.5 m to 700 meters), the second one is called 1000 and can read the distances from 5 to 1094 yards (4.5 m to 1000 m) and last but not least, we have a 1500 model that reads distances from 5 to 1640 yards (4.5 m to 1500 m). What their other lines of rangefinders do not have, is a special OLED technology with highly visible red illuminated icons. With 6x magnification and a wide field of view, these laser rangefinders will help you scan the landscape and make the accurate shot.
Hawke Vantage series of red dots
New affordable series of red dots Vantage have a 3 MOA red dot and an 11-stage brightness which make them usable in any lighting condition. Vantage red dot sights com in three sizes: a model with a 20 mm objective is perfect for handguns, while the models with 25 mm and 30 mm are suitable for hunting rifles or AR. All models are available for either the Weaver mounting rail or 9-11 mm mounting rails. With a two-year warranty, these products will be quite affordable, the price ranging from $89 to $99.
