Things I liked: Every thing. I use it on my .45 Cal Texan for long range hunting. The optics are extremely clear. In my opinion, the clarity is better than any Hawke scope I have owned. I can see my target clearly at 150 plus yds.
Things I would have changed: Make a green or red illuminated reticle. As is, it's only red.
What others should know: If you are shooting long range, the fact that is only focuses down to 15yds, it's no big deal. It is a little heavy but when hunting I always use a bipod or tripod.
Things I liked: The scope has many features for the price. I really like the reticle.
Things I would have changed: I am unable to lock or zero the windage or elevation turrets. The screws are impossible to loosen. Maybe I am doing something wrong...
What others should know: The scope is heavy. This is fine for bench shooting, which I do, but the weight would bother me if I was a hunter.
Things I liked: The optics are crystal clear and bright. Turrets are positive and I don't miss the locking feature as I find that they would be virtually impossible to "accidentally" change.
Things I would have changed: Inclusion of a side wheel would be very useful since the paralax adjustment is pretty stiff.
What others should know: Athlon scopes all come with a life-time warranty which bodes well for the confidence of the manufacturer in it's product. I'm happy it did, because my windage turret went belly up about 120 days after I bought it. This is my daily driver so it gets quite a bit of use, but I didn't expect this failure. This is the reason I gave the scope 4 stars instead of a solid 5.

Can I use it on a centerfire .270win?
All the Athlon scopes are firearm capable.
MOA reticle with MOA turret adjustments? Or MOA reticle with Mil turret adjustments?
Neither: Look in manual :https://www.pyramydair.com/airgun-resources/manuals/Athlon-ArgosBTR-Riflescope-User-Manual-web.pdf
Are these scopes marked with a serial number ? It is needed so I can legally have one.
Yes, they are serialized
