Hawke Frontier 1-6x24 L4A Dot red illuminated etched glass reticle 30mm Hunting Rifle Scope - superb for close range, dense brush, driven hunts, dangerous game and CQB
The very top of the Hawke range of rifle scopes with a precision 6x ratio optical system and glass that is truly exceptional. All Hawke scopes are excellent and the Frontier are the best of the best
>> If you can't afford one now get a quality budget scope (Hawke Vantage, Panorama or Nikko Panamax) and save up for a Frontier, it's worth the wait <<
21 layered optics produce brilliant clarity throughout the field of view with crisp genuine best in class image transmission.
6x optical system gives increased flexibility between short and long range shooting.
Glass etched, illuminated L4A Dot reticle
See the Airgunner magazine review at - http://www.airgunmagazine.co.uk/tests/a-new-frontier-the-frontier-30/ example comment on the review - ...I am honestly taken aback by the quality of the Frontier’s lenses
Mount rings to fit it onto a rifle ARE NOT included
If you need .22 rimfire 3/8", airgun 11mm, 20mm weaver/picatinny mount rings you will need to purchase them in addition to the scope. See shop/Related items at bottom of the page and look for low profile models for 30mm tube. Please ask if unsure or see my guide to mounts and bases at http://www.tacticalscope.co.uk/blog/?p=50 We can also help with adapter bases for rifles such as Crosman, Ruger, Remington, Howa, Weatherby etc
Long eye relief (4") for high recoil and magnum calibers - all caliber suited and rated
- 6x ratio precision engineered optical system: 1-6x for great in the field target flexibility.
- 21 layer fully multi-coated optics for ultimate clarity - one of the crispest sight pictures you will ever see.
- 30mm mono-tube chassis for superior strength
- Glass etched reticle with red illumination - crisp, clear view, immune to recoil.
- Rheostat on saddle offers 11 levels of brightness
- ¼" @100yd low profile 'no-snag' fingertip turrets
- Fast focus eyebell and high torque zoom ring
Each scope is factory recoil tested before being nitrogen purged to make them fully waterproof, shock proof and fogproof.
Etched glass L4A Dot Reticle with red illumination
Low profile fingertip turrets - Highly accurate click-sound matched turrets with a click value of 1/4" per 100 yards per click with a total value of 15" for each revolution.
Once zeroed the turret scales can be reset
A variant of the classic L4 reticle, the L4A dot uses a more open outer post design to keep more of the target visible while aiming. 30" spacing from center to post at 100 yards when on 4x magnification. Preset correct at 1.0x
Benefits of Glass Etched Reticles and IR
Glass-etched reticles are way superior to wire for several reasons, most notably is how much finer and cleaner they are when viewed through the scope.
A glass etched reticle, also cannot be broken. Anyone who has shot enough has seen a wire reticle actually break within the reticle field. As the reticle design is etched into the reticle lens, it is static and cannot physically be broken.
As an added benefit there is zero internal light reflection when using IR which occurs to some extent in illuminated scopes with wire reticles.
This superior design requires an additional cost, but even if you don’t plan to use the illumination, the glass-etched reticle is a feature with value to the shooter.
Illumination comes into its own when shooting targets that are either naturally dark or made dark by light conditions such as shadow, dawn dusk, very bright light or night shooting with lamps or night vision kit.
Without Illumination a black reticle can be very hard to make out against the target. Illumination fixes this problem and gives immediate contrast. Adjust intensity according to the light conditions.

Hawke Frontier Review - http://www.airgunmagazine.co.uk/tests/a-new-frontier-the-frontier-30/
This review is on one of the other Frontier 30 models, however the quality remains the same through the range
Some snippets from it -
Expensive, yes – but if the Frontier I’ve been testing lately is anything to go by, should you be in the market for the ultimate in build and image quality, you’ve simply got to have it on your shortlist
...Speaking of the lenses, this is clearly where much of your money goes
...the 21 layers of advanced coatings that all the glass surfaces have received really do work.
...The Frontier renders one of the crispest sight pictures I’ve ever viewed through a telly, irrespective of price
...it scored a maximum in the Airgun Shooter standard test (and is the first scope ever to have achieved this)!
...I am honestly taken aback by the quality of the Frontier’s lenses
