After reading a lot of reviews on their product line ,I pulled the trigger and ordered one from RedStarTargets in Calgary , the only dealer for these in Canada and Scott was a real pleasure to deal with and kept me informed through the process as he has to order it in from the US . I received the 6-24x50 FFP mil/mil Argos BTR today. Straight from the box in comparison with the BSA 4-14x44 FFP offering ,the build looks similar but not the same . Proportions for the Athlon are bigger, the turrets have a positive feel in comparison , the flip up shades are also a nice perk in comparison to the bikini covers with the BSA. The glass is better from initial look through and the IR works perfectly with no fuzzy glare from the reticle like I experienced with a cheaper leapers I have. I'll be mounting and testing soon . So far looks real good . Should be known the scope comes in with a price tag of just under 500$ Canadian including shipping .
I'll take a few pics for comparison .
