Mainhawke Riflescope Vantage 30 WA FD IR 1 8X24

Hawke Optics has boosted its range of LPVO offerings with three new 1-8x24mm riflescope models. All Hawke Vantage riflescopes feature the company's H2 optics, while the 1-8x24mm offerings come with three reticle choices; L4A, Circle Dot, or Tactical BDC 5.56. Featuring precision glass-etched reticles with multi-stage illumination in both red and green, these models are built on a 30mm monotube chassis with a Wide Angle FOV for maximum light transmission. The ½-MOA capped, resettable, fingertip turrets make for easy adjustments, while 11 layers of Fully Multi Coated lenses provide a clear and bright viewing picture.

The L4A Dot and Circle Dot reticle give a clean and uninterrupted view of the target, while the new Tactical BDC 5.56 reticle gives detailed accuracy for 5.56 NATO ammunition AR-pattern rifles and pistols. The glass-etched BDC (bullet drop compensating) reticle features an illuminated center dot and horseshoe for fast target acquisition, and windage markers for enhanced accuracy. The Tactical BDC 5.56 option also features a range-finding feature etched into the glass below the reticle. It is designed for a standard IDPA target size of 18x30-inches when used on 8x magnification, specifically designed for common USPSA and IPSC targets.

Alongside these three new models of 1-8x24mm scopes, Hawke offers three 1-6x24mm models, four 1-4x24mm models, and a 1-8x24mm throughout their riflescope lineup, all with a variety of features and reticles including fiber-dot illumination and the popular Circle Dot and L4A Dot. All of these models, alongside all Hawke riflescopes, are nitrogen purged, shockproof, waterproof, fog proof, and are all caliber rated (glass-etched models). A removable throw lever is included, along with Hawke's no-fault lifetime warranty.
