I'm particularly looking at this. https://www.swfa.com/athlon-1-6x24-midas-btr-30mm-riflescope-2.html?___SID=U I have a cheap 1-6 on my AR and want to step up a bit. I like the look or the reticle in this scope but I've never heard anything about Athlon.

Athlon is a pretty big company now and they have been good with customer support and product consistency.

Midas 1-6x24 is a very decent scope.  If you are looking for a 1-6x24, you should also check out Burris RT-6 and Hawke Frontier.

Thanks for the reply and more options. A lot of the scopes that get recommended are just plain out of my price range. Nice to see some decent scopes in a more retiree friendly price.Wink
