Default athlon Argos scopes, $159-$174

https://www.midwayusa.com/s?promotio...n-argos-scopes
Seems like a solid deal for under $200 for the two models.

I don't have personal experience and I'm sure it's not a competition level scope but they have a decent reputation from what i've read. Seems like even at $300+ they are regarded as a good value. At under $200 it should be very good

Tracks well, turrets are a little mushy and marks not centered, but it gets the job done and they have a lifetime warranty just like Vortex.

I've got the Argos 8-34 BTR and it's seen action on my Daniel Defense AR and several rimfires with no problems. It isn't a great scope, except when you look at what we paid for them, they aren't bad at all. Eye relief at near max mag isn't great, but using 22-28 magnification is fine. The BTR are a step up in class from the non BTR's that Midway are offering. The reviews for them are just so so to downright troubling. Do your homework first to decide if it's what you want.

I'd avoid the Argos and get the Midas line at a minimum. I own a Midas BTR and Cronus. They're great scopes for the money.

Camera Land has this one for $340.

For some reason the paste feature isn't working properly. I've tried it 4 times and still end up with half a link.

The BTR's are excellent, not sure about these. I have an BTR 8-34x56 on my Ruger Precision rifle.

I have a Cronus BTR, Argos and talos. They come with a lifetime no questions asked warranty. Cronus BTR is the bees knees. Clarity rivals the gen 2 razor. 10oz lighter too.

Amazon has the illuminated Athlon Talos BTR FFP 4-14x44 30mm with their version of a MIL Horus reticle for $249.

If you look at camelcamelcamel, the price is about as low as it's ever been.

Amazon just reduced their price for one of the above mentioned scope. It quickly sold out, but you can still order them at that price to be delivered when (if?) back in stock. Amazon has a few other features that Midway doesn't have, including a few cash back outfits.
