new hawke ft scope
just read the thread below and have recently acquired the new sidewinder FT scope. nice to to find such good quality flip ups. i really like the fine thread lock ring on the fast focus eyeball. just had a session today doing my ranging. i have already made a sharks fin for myself similar to what B. T. would make, it gives me a radius of 95 mm. like one of the gents on the other thread the gap between 50 and 55 yds markers was 2 mm. with my fin of course its now 4 mm. i tried to loosen the object lens ring to see if altering the parallax would widen the gaps but with a rubber glove on and trying to burst a blood vessel i gave up, also the lens carrier might be glued to the ring like so many scopes. it snaps in a bit better than any big nikko mk 3 i have used and it didn't white out at all today, i did however do all my ranging on forty mag as it aint the brightest scope, my sightron is much clearer. the scope focuses down to 10. 5 yds. so far i like the scope and will be giving it a good go. regards.
