SIDE FOCUS 15 YARDS TO INFINITY FYI...

USE ONLY FOR HOLDOVER AND NOT FOR CLICKING BECAUSE CHINESE ATHLONS AREN'T RELIABLE FOR CLICKING FYI...

AIRGUN RATED FYI...

LIFETIME WARRANTY FYI...

HOPEFULLY NOT LIKE AEON FYI...

Just as I had envisioned, Chinese scope prices coming down...

Hotair thanks for the heads-up!

I didn’t order that specific one but in the course of checking prices on the other Athlon scopes I picked up the used  6-24x50 sold by Amazon.

I was getting ready to plunk down for a new one and you save me some serious cash!

thanks!!

I've not used a first focal plane scope. Looked through them on the showroom but that's it. I like the idea of the zero not changing with magnification adjustment. I know that hurt me at a Field Target event when I was adjusting the magnification all over and not compensating for it. I'd used my sons Amazon account and he called me after seeing the activity asking why I'd bought a shit scope. 🤣  Funny how you acclimate to prices. Several years ago I would have shit thinking I'd spent so much on a scope. Today it's like, "well at that price it's a tester." 🤨

They are difficult to see the fine reticle at the lower magnification levels so an illuminated reticle is a must have IMHO with FFP scopes. Some of my buddies just start at 10x since they have trouble acquiring the reticles at lower magnification. I don't have any problem with a SFP reticle if the scope has reliable (JAPAN) repeatable turrets for clicking because I can click for each shot IE SWFA, BUSHNELL, WEAVER etc (JAPAN ETC.).
