    I saw that video and another video comparing the Argos 6-24 to the Vortex 6-24 PST. There is also one done by Athlon showing perfect tracking and return to zero.
    The Tracking in that one comparison test gave the Argos better tracking than the PST it was compared to.
    Is it the perfect, best scope out there? No. For the price it is hard to beat.


    It is what it is, another good budget option to use while you save up for that Tier 1 scope.

    Ej31TQV.jpg24X @100yards taken with a hand held camera. This picture does not do justice to the image you get looking directly through the scope. This shows some CA that was not there and a dullness to the black of the target dots. Taken today 12-25-16 during a pressure test.

    Little update here on the Athlon Argos 6-24X50 FFP mil/mil scope.
    Did 2 things with it, first changed the grease to the green slime and it helps the turret feel.
    2nd, I got some thin nylon washers and installed them for a zero stop.
    The washers were from Non-Ferrous Fasteners Inc., Size NF9320
    I bought 10 and only needed 4; cost about $7.00 with the shipping.

    Here is an update on the Athlon Argos BTR 6-24X50 FFP Mil/Mil scope.
    I now have 554 rounds through my rifle with this scope without a hiccup.
    I would buy it again as I have had no issues with it other than the grease change in the turrets...
    Most of those rounds were dialed up and down to varying distances up to 570 yards.
    The turrets require paying attention as they are not the most audible or tactile out there; however, they are accurate.
    For the price these scopes are an excellent choice to get you out shooting as you save up for the Tier 1 glass.
