    Hawke's Riflescope Vantage Models

    Hawke Optics Riflescope Vantage Model

    Hawke Optics are adding new models to their Vantage line of scopes. With more than 100 variants to chose from, the latest additions are focused on hunting and recreational shooting. The new models are called Vantage 4-12×40 and Vantage 4-12×50 and they both use the 30/30 Duplex reticle. Both are based on one-inch mono-tube frames with 11-layer fully multi-coated lens.

    Here’s what Hawke Optics have to say to describe their new models:


    Extreme Value and Performance Mesh in Two New Vantage Scope Models

    Hawke® Optics, a world leader in high quality sporting optics with outstanding performance and value, is proud to introduce two new models to the popular Vantage line of riflescopes. The Vantage 4-12×40 with 30/30 Duplex reticle and the Vantage 4-12×50 with 30/30 Duplex reticle are perfect for hunting and recreational shooting. These new models continue the legacy of the Vantage line, offering great features and extreme clarity at very affordable prices.

    “Hawke Optics is proud to offer over 100 different models of riflescopes in the lineup, meeting the needs of any type of shooting,” said Kevin Sheehan, Vice President of Sales & Marketing for Hawke Optics. “The Vantage line of riflescopes represents 50 of those products, including the two newest models.  Vantage has been wildly popular, offering extreme clarity, premium features, unique precision reticles, and great value. We are very proud of how well these scopes have been received and we are committed to bringing our customers the best value in sporting optics today.”

    Both the 4-12×40 and the 4-12×50 models of Vantage scopes are built on one-inch mono-tube frames with ¼ MOA low-profile ‘no-snag’ fingertip turrets for dialed-in accuracy. They feature the 30/30 Duplex Reticle offering 30″ spacing from post to post at 100yds when on 4x magnification, giving a modern take on a classic reticle design. The Vantage scopes have an Adjustable Objective for parallax correction (AO models) and fixed parallax distance of 100 yards. Like the rest of the Vantage line, these new models have 11 layer, fully multi-coated optics for excellent clarity. They are nitrogen purged to be water, shock and fog proof. Get on target quickly with the fast focus eyebell and high torque zoom ring. These scopes have a threaded objective/ocular for optional accessories to suit your shooting needs. As you would expect, these new Vantage scope models carry Hawke’s No-Fault Lifetime Warranty.
