I realize that getting hands on either of these scopes right now, particularly the Athlon, is a chore.

Having said that, I know there are some Ares (first run) in the hands of testers.

Has anyone compared the glass in the Ares to the PST Gen 2?

Thanks.

Ive been looking hard at buying the Athlon BTR12 red dot and your post caught my eye. Ive never used Athlon but like what ive read about them. Now i did see this add for the Athlon Ares 4,5x27x50 for $849.99 and figured id share it with you. looks like they have them in stock. Hope this is the one your intrested in.

Either way, they do not have them in stock. I talk to Athlon guys with reasonable regularity and the production Ares is not yet here (soon though).
