I looked thru a couple today and glass looked pretty good. Turrets didnt feel all that great but didnt expect much for the price point

That price for a FFP scope is hard to beat. Never looked through one though...

Some levels have better glass. I looked at them but it was to hard to judge inside a building

I have limited use with the high end FFP Cronus model as well as the Midas BTR SFP model.

The Cronus I took out to 1650 yards and it performed as advertised clicks are more tactile than the turrets on the Midas model. Glass seems good not stellar but for money spent I am not expecting Swaro glass just solid performance and optically not disappointing...... like I have been with some of the Vortex Viper/ Trijicon stuff for the prices paid.

The 6-24x50 Argos BTR is on Amazon for $315 shipped. I might have to take a run at it.

I've read reviews comparing it to the Bushnell DMR, Burris XTR, Sightron SII, Vortex PST, and they all say the Athlon is just as good with on par or better glass.

Come on, really? A quarter of the price and it's better?

Me too, I might write an in depth review. I can't seem to find one, just forum posts of people saying they are great.

I am trying to decide between an Athlon Argos 6-24x50 and a SWFA 3-15x42.

I wonder how they stack up.

That new Ares they are talking about sounds awesome, especially the 2.5-15x ffp model.

Scroll down to the posts by "frostyline". There is a video he posted and in the next post after the video he mentions the new Ares BTR model.
