Hunters and PRS shooters alike can benefit from a scope like the Ares ETR 3-18×50, especially one with high end glass. Keep the edge in tough and low-light conditions with UHD glass and Advanced Fully Multi-Coated lenses. No matter how tiring the trek to your hunting spot or how brutal the PRS stage plan is, the Ares ETR’s locking windage turret and Precision Zero Stop will keep you on target. This 6x magnification range is ideal for those needing a great field of view on low power, and a high enough magnification to address long range targets.

This  Ares ETR 3-18×50 Model has APLR6 first focal plane illuminated MOA reticle in it.  Please click the link for detailed reticle subtension…




UHD Glass Extra-Low Dispersion glass significantly reduces chromatic aberration giving you an utmost bright and sharp image with true color reproduction.
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 Multi-Coated Fully Multi-Coated 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 blind folded.
Locking Windage Turret This Locking Feature allows you to push down to lock the turret and pull up to turn. This feature prevents the windage knob from being turned accidentally and keeps your zero all the time.
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
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 .

1 review for Ares ETR 3-18X50 APLR6 FFP IR MOA UHD

  1. Rated 5 out of 5


    After testing some of the main stream name brand scopes, we tested out the Athlon Ares ETR 3-18 for use on our AR10 .308 sniper rifles. We currently run one of the more expensive name brands and were lookin for a replacement. This scope was impressive out of the box and far exceeds the price point in quality. The APLR6 FFP IR MOA reticle had all the information needed to make quick range estimations and target holds. We even shot this glass at 5 yards just to test out some of our gun dope.

    The glass is very clear and rivals some of the scopes that are two and three times the price. The illuminated reticle is easy to use and to employ without taking your eyes off the scope. The elevation and windage changes are very crisp making it easy to dial a dope and know exactly what you dialed. Having the windage locked until necessary was an added bonus. While we use this scope in a tactical environment, it is a comfort to know whether tactical or competitive, you haven’t inadvertently changed your windage while moving with the rifle (which has caused me to miss big in competitions).

    As for durability, in a law enforcement environment, our rifles ride around in the back of our vehicles and get bumped around a lot. This scope holds up to the abuse and maintains a zero without hesitation.

    We also tested out the TSR1 red dot which did not disappoint. With the motion activated on function, the red dot was ready for use when picking the rifle up. It was easy to mount and easy to zero. The TSR1 showed repeated accuracy and durability along with the Ares ETR.

    Bottom line is don’t spend your money until you have checked out an Athlon scope, they make high quality scopes for much cheaper than the competition.
