For those of you that are just getting started in Bench-Rest competitions or are looking to start, take a close look at the Argos BTR GEN2  10-40×56 scopes. These scopes have features normally only found on high-end scopes. They have 15 yard to infinity side parallax adjustment. They also have our Advanced Fully Multi-Coated Optics that deliver a crystal clear bright image in in low-light environments. The Argos BTR GEN2 also features our exclusive XPL coating that protects the lenses from dirt, grease, and harsh weather conditions.  The aircraft grade aluminum tube will protect these world class optics no matter what punishment you throw at it.These scopes have Precision True Zero Stop and Side Parallax Adjustment to give you the ability to adjust to any range and come back your zero at any time. This along with the newly designed Bench-rest reticle gives you easy elevation and windage hold over.

This Argos BTR GEN2 10-40×56 Model has BLR second focal plane MOA reticle in it. Please click the link for download the reticle instruction manual in Specification for more details…





Super Fine Reticle The reticle with its floating center dot and thin lines is specially designed for bench rest shooting competition or any other applications where your target size is small and you do not want to see your target being obscured by your reticle
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
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.
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.
Heat Treated 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 accidentally 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 purchased this scope to replace my current 36x fixed power scope
    as I was having a problem with the thin cross-hairs in the reticle

    Just let me say for a scope at half the price, this Argos is twice the
    scope very clear even at 40x and the reticle design is perfect and
    tracks spot on.

    All though I use this scope strictly for Bench / Target shooting I wish
    it had locking turrets ……Just My 2 Cents….

    Athlon, keep up the good work……. I’m very pleased !!

    I am very happy with this scope. They designed this scope perfectly for its intended purpose. The reticle is great with the floating dot and not to fine of cross hairs. No information over load. Its just a clean set up. the turret are crisp and easy to use. And most of all there service is next to none. I have several of there scopes and any time I have had a problem with any little thing they fixed it faster than you could believe! They are a great company to deal with. Hope they go far.

    This is my second review, this scope is excellent
    and so is Athlon’s Warranty, so let me explain.

    I was having a problem with my scopes parallax
    contacted Athlon, I was told to send my scope
    back and they would inspect it and let me know.

    Well within a couple of days I received an email
    stating they were replacing my scope with a new
    one……..And I received that in three days ” wow ”

    Excellent Customer Service, my next scope will
    be another Athlon.

    What a great, underrated scope! I’ve been shooting competitive airguns for years, and have the 10x40x56 currently mounted on a FWB 300SU. I can’t believe the clarity it has, better than two $1200 Sightron S3’s I had before. For max crispness run it only at 36X like I do, center the turrets, and use an adjustable mount to zero in so you are looking through the optical center of the scope. I use it for Benchrest, but this scope is so good it can distinguish between 53 and 55 yards, which would also make it ideal for Field Target, a suggestion I am sending to the company, if it only focused down to 10 yards. Bottom line, I’ve owned Sightrons, Hawkes, Bushnells, Mueller, Weaver, Centerpoint, Vortex and Nikko Sterling scopes (“s” indicating more than one), and except for the thin reticle and focusing down to only 15 yards, this scope is perfect for me. If they put out a version fixing those two problems, I’d buy a dozen.

  5. Rated 5 out of 5


    I just wanted to clarify that I am perfectly satisfied with the scope as is for Benchrest. But if they reduced the focus to 10 yards, and either slightly increased the size of the reticle or darkened it with more contrast, I could then use it for Field Target on the same gun.

    This is my 5th Athlon scope I have them fitted ro all my rifles from .22lr to 50 BMG , I had a small issue with a turret cap on a Talos and it was replaced under warranty same day , other than that I have never had a problem , they in my opinion for the money the very best you can invest in and put a lot of the high end big money scopes to shame , if ever I need another scope it will be an Athlon for sure , Steve C from Australia .
