Cobra Sidewinder series?
Anyone have any experiences? either the Sidewinder LX or the Sure-loc Sidewinder.
I had a cobra adjustable a while back and was really unhappy w/it....the aperture fell out of the scope housing and the adjustment knob stripped and fell off within days of purchasing it.
Hey Chris is the sure loc sidewinder considered a fixed pin or movable?I cut things up and split them down!

The sure-loc special ops would be considered fixed as long as nobody caught you moving it during a shoots.

you did not understand....Cobra now makes and may have been for a while a sight called the sure loc sidewinder it has the extentions and slides like a sure loc but the housing and fixed pins of a sidewinder series.I cut things up and split them down!

The Sidewinder LX with the sure-loc design is not condidered to be a moveable sight. Even though you can move it in and out, it does not give you the convenience to fine tune your sight down to the yard like moveable sights. I wondered about this myself, until I went to a shoot and was told I was O.K.
Bowman, where did you find a scope that worked with the sidewinder?06 Tribute

Don't hold me to this but the cobra sure-loc sidewinder and the sure-loc special ops are the same sight. The sure-loc version may have a different extension. I think the micro adjust and the head and pins are the same on both.
We normally have the sure-loc special ops in the store and it's very nice.

I dont have a cataloge in front of me but does the special ops have a coiled fiber optic housing, like it seems all the sights are going to? I stand corrected, just went to the online store and looked, same sight right down to the price!
