; We are now an authorized Athlon Optics Dealer We have taken in Athlon Optics for multiple reasons....
First, and most importantly, they offer a quality product. If they didn't the rest of the reasons would mean nothing. We will not promote any company that we do not believe offers a good product, quality customer service and stands out from the crowd of hundreds of brands out there.
Secondly, they have a very diverse line of riflescopes, binoculars, spotters and laser rangefinders to fit the needs of both the Hunter and the Tactical shooter.
Thirdly (is thirdly really a word?) Their products seem to parallel some other mfg's items for far less $$$.
For Example (These scopes are extremely similar to other branded scopes we have sold tons of and the Athlon Scopes
are way less expensive.Here are some items we feel will be huge sellers as they are extemely similar to some of the scopes we have sold tons of:Ares BTR 4.5-27x50 - APLR3 FFP IR MIL
only $849.99 Argos 2-10x40 - BDC 600
only $249.99Argos 3-15x40 - BDC 600
This is one we feel will be a very popular Hunting scope:Argos 4-20x50 - AHMR1 SFP MOA
only $319.99. This is also available with the BDC-600 reticle
For those of you who are looking for more power check out their Argos 6-30x56 - BDC 600
for only $349.99
Available in both Mil and MOA is their Argos BTR 1-4x24 - AHSR14 FFP IR MIL
for only $299.99Argos BTR 6-24x50 - ATMR FFP IR MOA
for only $369.99. This too is available in MIL and as you see runs about half the price of the competition.
For those of you who want something slightly more powerful they offer this same scope in an Argos BTR 8-34x56 - APMR FFP IR MIL
, or MOA version for only $20.00 additional @ $389.99
I think you get the point. They've made some of the most popular featured scopes available at a much sharper price which is great.
Years ago a new optics company came in to see me and showed me a binocular that looked the same as many others coming out of China. So similar my opinion was that when it rolled down the conveyor belt in the factory it must split in multiple directions and then go to different areas to be wrapped and packaged to the different brands this factory was producing for. I told this sales person that I already carried this binocular from 3 or 4 different mfg's and they sell for between $259.99 and $289.99, depending on the company. If this is priced below $200.00 then it would be interesting to me. If it's priced the same as all the other "me too" binoculars then I had no interest. It was priced to sell at $269.99. I thanked him for his time and explained I didn't need more "me too" optics in the store.
IMO, Athlon Optics
has not reinvented anything here. They're offering pretty much what's already available from a host of other optics companies. They are probably using the same factories in Japan and China to make their products as there's not all that many different factories out there, however, they are charging way less $$$$ for the same products. This, to me, makes them interesting and that is one of the many reasons why we have signed on with them.
They also offer a line of binoculars
with a similar story.
I read a great review of their Midas 10x42 Binocular
which they offer for $299.99. In the review it ranked either comparable or somewhat superior to similar binoculars priced in the $350.00 to $500.00 price range. At $299.99 it's a winner.
