Somebody’s “in love” with the Argos 6-24X50! LOL! Have a gander at this “TEXT.”

We’ve got a few love letters like this. A gentleman recently purchased the Argos 6-24X50 and he sent a text to Laura who sold him the scope and he seems to really, really like it! Hawk, we appreciate your passion for our Argos rifle scope, we really like it too!  Text is below with a picture of the rifle with the Argos mounted on it.



SWAT Team Member putting the Midas 4.5-27X50 to the TEST!

Check out this fantastic brief review recently submitted to our Athlon email. The gentleman who submitted this email has been investigating our Athlon products since November and is a member of a SWAT team on the east coast. Also you can see some great conversations on Snipers Hide!

“Thanks for the update, no rush still having a blast with the Midas! Now we are using it on our 223 designated marksman rifles. We find the extra magnification great for scouting work and being able to dial down to a lower magnification for tactical rifle work is excellent. I would have to say by now it has been on 15 or 20 rifles at least as many shooters and a couple thousand rounds without a single issue.”

Pictured is the Midas BTR 4.5-27X50 rifle scope he is referring to:


A customer’s experience on Cronus 10×42 binocular

A customer from Loveland Colorado recently bought a pair Cronus 10×42 binocular and shared his experience with it.  Below is directly from his email:

“Spent yesterday comparing Cronus 10×42 to the Swarovski 10×42 EL we have had for years and has been our gold standard.  Ergonometrics IMO favor the Cronus, especially the diopter adjustment.  Both have great glass and it is nigh on impossible for me to decide which of the two has better clarity and resolution either by looking at daylight objects or star testing at night.  My wife favors the Swaros by a bit but also admits its close.  Light gathering seems equal.  Both are waterproof, and both are about the same size, shape and weight.  The final observation I would make is you can buy 4-5 pairs of Cronus binoculars for the price of one of the Swaros.”

“Here is where I am on the evaluations. Have compared the binoculars multiple times and have not been able to decide which have better glass – until now. Looking at detailed objects at 100-800 yards I have to say the Cronus gives better resolution. Now that is a big statement when comparing to the generally accepted gold standard Swarovski. I have looked several times to be sure I was not skewing the results, but I am not. One disclaimer, our, Swaro 10×42 EL are 12 yrs old and thus the. First generation of ELs. I do not know if current Swaro have changed glass formulae, coatings, etc.
But I do know the Cronus is unbelievably beating the set of Swaro ELs we have!”
