Well don't hold your breathe on these :( I have a Hawke 3-10x44 Nite-Eye and am not impressed by it much. Had it on my 22LR with sound moderator and at closer ranges you can only use the low range mag or it's very blurred. As I took it off to try out that Nikko Sterling Gold Crown that was proving not goot on a centerfire the Hawke is laying in that scopes box so i might as well plonk it on the 6mm Rifle and see if it's any good on that for range use.

Another poster from the UK had another model on his CZ452 and wa snot impressed with it and is lookign for another scope to replace it. finally I wa sint eh local gunshop a few weeks back and a couple of guys came in and oen had a Hawke of some kind on his CZ452 and he wanted a new scope as the cross hairs had slipped and were now at a 45 degree angle :eek: the scope was only a couple of years old but the shop claimed thay only have a one year warenty so even the importers don't trust them. Cannot find the paperwork which came with mine so cannot comfirm or deny this.

However I am unimpressed enough not to be looking at any other Hawke scoeps and I am still lookign for a varible scope. At present I am looking at the Konus pro range.

What link did you read that they were made in Japan?
Ahhh it seems depending upon exactly which model Hawke you buy some are Japanese Made but of course these are their more expensive models ;) they have one called "Frontier" which the adverts claim is Japanese made and of super high quality, they must think so because the price here is over $600US :eek: .
