    Since its a HAWKE Warranty swap out for your broken Hawke scope you sent in I would choose the more expensive Airmax which is more than double the price as the Vantage so I could sell it as brand new to buy something else better.

    So this is actually your THIRD TIME HAWKE warranty for the scope?

    When you get your new Airmax-SELL IT!!!

    AND!!!

    Don't volunteer infornation that there's NO WARRANTY on SECOND HAND (NOT! ORIGINAL OWNER) BRAND NEW HAWKE SCOPES.

    Just say its BRAND NEW.

    THATS THE TRUTH!

    rwsmike,

    are you talking about the 30 FFP versions of the Airmax and the Vantage?

    Airmax 30 FFP 4-16×50  https://us.hawkeoptics.com/airmax-30-ffp-sf-4-16×50-amx-ir.html

    Vantage 30 WA FFP 4-16×50  https://us.hawkeoptics.com/vantage-30-wa-ffp-4-16×50-half-mil-dot-ir.html

     

    The Airmax has capped turrets!! And the reticle has some (to me) odd spacing. And it has 16moa less of elevation adjustment (70 vs. 86).

    Both do not have thick outside posts in the reticle, so I would assume that on low magnification the crosshairs are a little harder to aim at your quarry on a rushed shot with a busy background.

    They have a nice wide FoV for that magnification (32/33ft @ 100y).

     

    Well, the Hawke Sidewinder FFP does not fair much better. A lot less FoV (23ft)….

     

     

    Why not an SWFA 3-15×44 FFP?  (Tough as nails; Thick reticle outside posts; no IR; 120moa elevation adjustment; 35ft FoV; $700 MRSP)

    Or the Athlon Midas TAC 4-16×50 FFP?  (Thick reticle outside posts; 28ft FoV; $740 MRSP)

    Or the Falcon 3-18×50 FFP?  (Thick reticle outside posts; huge 39ft FoV; 90 moa; 39ft FoV; $400)

    Or the Swampfox Kentucky Long 3-18×50 FFP  (Thick reticle outside posts; 35ft FoV; $530 MRSP)

    Or the Hi-Lux PentaLux TAC-VF 4-20×50 FFP  (Thick reticle outside posts; 28ft FoV; $575 MRSP)

     

    They all have 10y side parallax, exposed turrets, holdoff reticle, mil/mil (SWFA also in moa/moa), IR.

     

    Just wondering…… 😊
