When it comes to optics, there’s a new sheriff in town.  Established in 2014, Athlon has wasted no time in rising through the ranks to offer affordable, high performing optics to rival those industry giants like Vortex and Bushnell’s. The Midas TSR2 is no exception.  This optic has the golden touch when it comes to performance and reliability without emptying your wallet.

I mounted the Midas TSR2 to my new Custombilt Firearms AR-15 and spent some time shooting with it both at home and across the country teaching carbine courses.  The Midas handled everything I could throw at it, performing flawlessly. And while the TSR2 is not the most expensive optic in the Athlon inventory, it has everything you’re looking for in a quality optic.
