    Hawke seem to be onto a winner with this particular optic chaps. Great value for money and fine performance to boot!

    mounts

    Hi all,

    Which mounts would people recommend when using this scope with an HW100. Would the single piece, medium sportsmatch mounts be ok?

    cheers

    Has anyone found a Sunshade which fits the Hawke Panorama EV 4-12x40?

    If you have, where did you get it from?

    Thanks!

    Dave, unless I'm being stupid, they only list a 44mm or 50mm Sunshade, so I assume the Panorama 4-12x40 would take a 40mm sunshade?

    Or am I wrong as usual?

    Thanks

    Sent them an email late last night and they replied today saying :

    We will have sunshades available for the Panorama range of scopes, however they are not currently in stock. We are due a delivery of these by the end of March (should be sooner)

    Keep checking the Deben website, as stock is updated on there daily.
    .

    Looks like we will have to wait about a month then!

    HTH and Thanks Dave!

    I bought the Panorama in 4x16x50 ao and must say that the claim of 20% extra FOV is a farce.

    Rubber ocular extension benefit?

    Hi first post! I wondered if anyone would be so kind as to offer some advice.

    I've just bought a Panaorama based on the good comments on this thread - it's also how I discovered AirgunBBS when I did a search for Hawke Panorama EV Reviews!

    I've just fitted it to my new HW100T, with medium height 2 piece BKL mounts. The thing is the fore mount is right up to the bell of the lense and is also right on the edge of the forward part of the breach, so I have no further backwards movement available to the scope. This is resulting in a not very comfortable firing position. So I wondered if one of the rubber ocular eye extensions (pig's ear?) available from Bisley would ease the situation. Also I thought it might help with another problem I'm getting with peripheral vision interference when aiming with both eyes open?

    I'd be very grateful for any suggestions.

    Ken

    Ive been out once since getting my rapid back and first impressions are very good. The Panorama replaced a 3.5-10x40 Simmons wtc and the Hawke seems a very good replacement. I love the half mil dot ret! Ive had a little practice using this ret in conjunction with my laser rangefinder and know what holdover i need up to 70yds and shot some magpies a couple of days ago. I now lase whatever im shooting at to get an accurate distance to target and use the necessary holdover using the mildots rather than dialling in its so easy...
    The optics are very bright and have an excellent field of view and although early days still im loving the little hawke. Im about to take the rapid out to a new shoot which is only a few miles from the house and is teaming with rabbits and expect the hawke to perform well as light goes.
