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 mildots...no 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.

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?
There is an intensity control on the illumanation. In my experience you can go low enough on the settings to be almost unnoticable.
Will this scope handle magnum springers and gas rams? AND: by magnum I mean Hatsan .30 cal. gas ram's also?
The scope is fully airgun rated. It should hold up.
Will this scope withstand the recoil from a Gamo Swarm Magnum gas piston?
What type of scope base is on your gun? What type of mount do you need? Weaver, Picatinny, 3/8″ or 11mm? Do you need 2-pc mounts or a 1-pc mount? 30mm or 1″? Scope mounts intro (Airgun Academy class)
