I finally wrapped up my review of the Hawke Sidewinder 30 Tactical.
You can find the whole thing here:
In a nutshell, I liked the scope a fair bit. Over time we will know more about how well it holds up under abuse, but the one I tested was quite solid. Glass is much improved and the mechanicals are repeatable.
On top of that, illumination is quite usable even in very low light conditions.
It is not cheap, retailing at a bit under $400, but is is not very expensive either. I think it offers good performance for the money. The scope is made in China, and it is probably the best scope I have seen come out of China up to date that is designed for tactical/target use.
