Things I liked: So far so good. Seems to be good quality. I especially like the side focus and the reticle. I must have 25 airgun scopes and one thing I hate is a busy reticle. This one is simple and clean. Also: the lighted feature is better on this scope than most. It only lights the middle crosshairs and tube glare which blinds you at night. This was the main reason I got it. Also: it only lights in red which is a big plus for me for it is the only useful color at night. Other scopes blind your point of aim with being too bright and unnecessary colors.

Things I would have changed: I don't think 10 different degrees of brightness on the reticle in necessary. When hunting you are going to use one of the dimmest anyway. The offset on/off switch is a little weird.

What others should know: I do not think this is a magnum springer scope. I put it on a pcp and it will be fine but a gas ram or springer...I don't think so.

Things I liked: Clear optics, reasonable size and weight for the magnification, excellent price. In my opinion, a most-magnification-for-the-price best buy!

Things I would have changed: Can't really think of anything more to hope for in the price range.

What others should know: With fingers crossed I returned a slightly less-expensive scope with similar magnification and features for credit toward the Athlon 6-18X, the returned scope a sore disappointment in multiple ways. In all the ways the returned scope was disappointing, the Athlon is very impressive and exceeded my hopes and expectations.

  • Ken from USA asked:

    Is there anyway to dime the lighted reticle lower. That's the problem with all these scopes that light up. They are to bright and useless. Maybe a 1/2 power battery or something?

    • Mark from USA:

      There is an intensity control on the illumanation. In my experience you can go low enough on the settings to be almost unnoticable.

  • Ken from USA asked:

    Will this scope handle magnum springers and gas rams? AND: by magnum I mean Hatsan .30 cal. gas ram's also?

    • Mark from USA:

      The scope is fully airgun rated. It should hold up.

  • Gene from USA asked:

    Will this scope withstand the recoil from a Gamo Swarm Magnum gas piston?
