Built off the success of the 1st generation Ares BTR, the GEN2 is still a top-tier riflescope, without the price tag. The Ares BTR GEN2 acquires a new stainless steel turret design, just like the Midas TAC and Ares ETR lines. The new turret design features sharper, more tactile clicks. Still featuring HD glass, a new optical system provides an even brighter and clearer image throughout the magnification range. A one-piece, precision machined aircraft-grade aluminum 6061-T6 aluminum scope body, precision zero stop, and impeccable tracking will deliver precise, accurate results in any field.

This Ares BTR GEN2 4.5-27×50 Model has the  APRS5 first focal plane illuminated MIL reticle in it. Please click the link or download the reticle instruction manual in Specification for more details…



APRS5 Reticle





HD Glass HD Glass gives you better light transmission, brighter, and sharper image.
Illuminated Reticle The illuminated reticle provides greater visibility during dusk and dawn and other low ambient light environment.
First Focal Plane Reticle First focal plane reticle stays valid at all power settings allowing you to fully utilize the specially designed reticle that shrinks or grows along with your target as you zoom in or out. The reticle offers quick target engagement at low power while offering precise holdover positions with finer details.
Etched Glass Reticle Reticle etched on the glass that provides excellent backing support for complex reticle design and offers great durability and much higher shock resistance to recoil
Advanced Fully Multicoated Fully Multicoated optics effectively reduces reflected light and increases the transmission of light giving you a brighter image than normal single coated lenses
XPL Coating XPL Coating gives you an extra protection on the exterior lenses from dirt, oil and scratches or anything else mother nature can throw at you.
Precision Zero Stop System The system allows you to lock down your zero position and dial back to it with a sharp and precise stop right at your zero mark even you are turning it in pitch-dark or blinded folded.
High Precision Erector System The high precision erector system processed by high precision CNC machine with +/- 0.0001mm tolerance level to provide you the most accurate power settings and smoothest magnification change
6061 T6 Aluminum The 6061T6 aircraft grade aluminum tube that has exceptional strength and superior mechanical integrity will protect these world class optics no matter what punishment you throw at it.
Exposed Tactical Direct Dial Exposed Direct Dial Turrets for elevation and windage allow you to quickly make adjustment as you needed and engage your target within a blink of your eyes
One Piece Tube Construction Heat treated one piece tube gives the scope extra strength over multi-piece tubes. A one piece tube also is better at keeping moisture out thus keeping your scope fog proof for the life of the product
Waterproof Waterproof to protect the scope in the harshest weather conditions or if accidently submerged underwater
Fog proof Fog proof to allow you to immediately engage your target when you take your rifle to cold ambient temperature from warm inside
Shockproof Robust mechanical system with special designs on both control and erector system that give you the ultimate recoil resistance to withstand 1000G recoil for 1000 times.
Argon Purged Argon Purging uses the inertia gas with bigger size molecules to purge any moisture out of the tube giving you better waterproofing and thermal stability .

    I wish that there was a “very good” rating on the rating scale as I feel that this scope is better than “Good”.

    I own both the Ares BTR Gen 2 as listed here and also the Cronus BTR 4.5-29 as well. I have the Cronus on my Vudoo that I shoot NRL22 / PRS Rimfire competition with and I think that it is a fantastic scope (best bang for the buck in that mid-upper echelon class of scopes). Due to my experience with the Cronus, I purchased the Ares to put on my new Volquartsen custom. I feel that it is perfectly suited to my expectations for that firearm and given my great experience with the Cronus, I have high expectations for the Ares.

    In my time thus far with the Ares, it is living up to my expectations. The turrets are very good and nearly as good as the Cronus (very tactile and audible with a good feel). The glass is better than the competitor’s (brand that starts with a V) scope that I owned for a limited time which was at a similar price / specification point. Further, the general handling feels comparable to other, next tier, scopes that I’ve owned and handled. This experience reflects the same thing that I experienced with the Cronus, the Athlon offerings simply punch above their weight and you get a scope that is a tier better than the price indicates.

    I would certainly recommend this scope to a friend and in general I’m coming to expect great things from any Athlon product and thus would recommend the brand in general.
