MAIN Hawke Reflex Wide View

Hawke Optics has debuted a new reflex sight: the Reflex Sight Wide View. This compact sight is ideal for carbines, shotguns, and other platforms requiring a fast, accurate, and lightweight sighting solution. During this season in particular, however, American hunters should consider this option to top their turkey guns.

A quality reflex sight becomes vital in the moments it counts. Whether out hunting or practicing at the range, shooters demand a sight that is always on point. The Hawke Reflex Sight Wide View is parallax free from 10 yards, boasts faster target acquisition than standard irons, and a compact footprint.

The optics have a 25-layer, fully multi-coated lens with a red illuminated, and two MOA circle-dot reticle with eight brightness settings. The two-inch frame is constructed from aluminum, helping to make the sight durable and lightweight at just three ounces. It can be mounted securely to a Picatinny or Weaver trail, has a low profile, and is water- and shockproof. To save on battery life, the sight goes into a standby mode if no movement is detected for five minutes, and automatically turns on again when it does detect movement, while the external battery door allows the battery to be replaced without removing the sight from the gun.
