Athlon Optics 6-24x50 Argos BTR Tactical Rifle Scope
Athlon’s bringing premium features to an accessible price point. This Athlon Optics 6-24x50 Argos BTR Tactical Rifle Scope is a quality scope suitable for all types of shooting conditions. It’s shockproof, weatherproof, and fogproof for your viewing pleasure.
The star of the show here is the ATMR first focal plane illuminated MIL reticle. The reticle scales with the magnification, meaning your holdovers never change no matter what magnification you choose. No more adjustments, just zoom and boom! You’ll wonder how you ever lived without this feature until now!

Things I liked: Features. Basically a clone of the Vortex Viper HST at 1/3 the price. First focal plane is nice but I would not say any better than 2nd focal plane just different. Includes caps - My SWFA did not which added another 20.00 Glass is clear even at 24x turrets can be locked (read the manual) Turrets can be set to zero
Things I would have changed: Its a great do all scope. About the only thing I would change is the weight. Its heavy at 29 oz.
What others should know: One of the better air gun scopes. Nice reticle with windage marks. Its better than a Hawke Sidewinder and as good as a SWFA variable which cost more. I own a SWFA too. I put it on a 17 WSM 3300 fps rifle and put up some .25" groups at 100 yards. Other than being on the heavy side (no worse than hawk sidewinder) I think this is the best bang for the buck optic for a PCP airgun.
Things I liked: Love the first focal plain feature, scope track great, awesome mill dot reticle. Bought this for my FX Crown, sorry guys if you sold it I would have gotten it from Pyramid Air. This is my third Athlon FFP scope from Pyramid Air, this one on my FX one on a Rem. 7mm08 and one on my 6.5 Creedmoore. these are great scopes shoot my two rifle out to 500yds. with great results. Just plane great scopes, will buy again for my other guns.
Things I would have changed: Nothing
What others should know: once zeroed you can put the turrets back to zero.
Things I liked: My first FFP scope. Very well built. I got the Mil/Mil version with the APMR reticle. The turrets have easy but positive clicks. The focus wheel has the right amount of tension. The magnification ring is pretty stiff though, hopefully it will loosen up through use. The IR reticle is nice. The flip up covers are pretty decent and fit well. The glass is super nice and clear. Excellent performance and value!
Things I would have changed: I would prefer the reticle knob to be top center instead of offset, in that I cannot mount my particular scope cam with it this way. But the Side-Shot fits just fine. And the magnification ring to not be so tight.
What others should know: FFP is the way to go!!!

Does this scope have a zoom wheel marking at 16X?
Yes, it does
what adjustable objective side wheel works with this scope?
There is not currently one available. There are a few custom side wheel makers out there, I'd check the forums.
I see that it's called shock proof does this mean that it's spring rifle rated? Also is there a side wheel available for the parallax adjustment?
Yes, Athlon rates their scopes for use on spring and gas piston air rifles. No larger side wheel available at this time.
