Features

First Focal Plane Reticle First focal plane design allows you to fully utilize specially designed reticles that shrink or grow along with your target as you zoom in or out.  These reticles offer quick target engagement at low power while offering precise holdover positions with finer details.
Illuminated Reticle The illuminated reticle provides greater visibility during dusk and dawn and other low ambient light environment.
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
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
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 .

    not bad!!! it works great clear until you reach up to around 28 x’s after that it start to get kinda fuzzy in the rain, overall very nice for price.
    just updated: today oct 11th 2016 test was in full sun and my cell phone note 2 took the pics and its way better in person just the images for some reason are not as sharp but in person they are! i/m very happy with this purchase

    Only have had it out 1 time but so far so good. Mounted on a Browning Eclipse Target rifle in 6.5 Creedmoor. Zeroed in quickly at 100 yds and moved back to 200. The parallax adjustment is a little off but still focused fine. Tried it at 34 power and very clear. So far very happy and seems to be a good value at the current price point.

    Incredibly clear and great construction. Can’t beat the price for product. I added the sun shade (bought from optics planet) and it turned my .308 bolt action rifle into a sweet reach-out-and-touch-em shooter.

    This an exceptional scope for the money. I have only been able to use it at 100 yards, going to use it at 250 yards this weekend. 250 yards is the maximum i can get out of my backyard shooting range. At 100 yards a maginification of 12 to 16 is all you need, at maximum magnification i can clearly read the mumbers on my paper targets. The optics are clear without any distortion. Shooting a 308 caliber rifle it holds true. The ffp (using mil) dot is great for calulating distance at any magnification. Get some quality 30mm scope rings and you wont.be disappointed. For long range shooting this scope may serve your purpose. My phylosophy on scopes from experience is.,Either buy a 30 or 40 dollar walmart scope or go all out for for a 400 dollar or more scope. Scopes for around 100 to. 150 dollars are not worth your money. Spend the extra or stay with cheap scopes. Spending your hard earned money on a 150 dollar scope is not worth it. This is from experience. I do love my Athon scope

    I installed this on my CZ 455 TACTICOOL. I shoot 50 yard benchrest rest and out to 200 yards for fun
    This scope meets my needs perfectly. Clear glass, durable construction and a great warranty.

    Today I had a reason to contact customer service regarding my Argos BTR 8-34×56 riflescope. I bought two, one for my Savage Model 10 FCR (308 Win), and one for my Model 11 VT (223). I bought scope mounts from UTG from Amazon, and stripped screws on both even though I used a Wheeler torque tool. So I called Athlon Optics to see if they could recommend a better set of rings that would work well with their optics, that wouldn’t break the bank. I talked with Jeff and he asked about 3 or 4 questions and ultimately found out we both have the same rifle and he recommended a one piece mount he uses on his Model 10 from a manufacturer I hadn’t even looked at. It should solve my problem, which was mount related, not scope related. . With the original UTG rings the scope worked flawlessly and was as clear as a bell. I just couldn’t get it to stay put, so I kept torqueing it down more and more, and ended up stripping a few of the screw holes. That’s a mounting issue, which the new Warne mount should solve. It is the same mount he has on his 308 and it’s holding 1/4 moa. So on something they will get no profit from, he was concerned enough to help get me a solution for the right price. Support, even if not for your own product is still support. I will look to Athlon 1st for any new scopes I get. And by the way, the scope is far better than I’d hoped for, as evidenced in the quality of the end product. If your thinking of getting one of their products, I’d give it a try, these guys will not let you down.

    I want to share my opinion regarding this GREAT riflescope, because everyone has their own opinion.

    I recommend this series riflescopes to anyone who wants to see well and never gets tired of hitting your target with ease
    at 600, next when I get a chance in the near future (hopefully) on to 1000.

    The glass is clear, the turret tracking is concise, the clicks are easy to feel/ hear. Up until I added this to my
    collection I had all 4-14x FFP from Primary Arms and Monstrum Tactical and they are great. BUT going from 14x to
    34x there is no going back. I will be adding/ changing out some of my 4-14x with more of these Athlon 8-34x FFP
    scopes. After 8 sight in shots @ 100 w/ M118LR clones that I made, I went and rang out shot after shot at 600 and was swinging 6″ diameter paddles on a dueling tree at 600. I was seeing some approx 2″ groups off a Harris bipod.
    I was able to count 80 out of 100 or so on steel w/ 46 clicks of elevation.
