The Argos family of scopes is one of Athlon Optic’s most advanced hunting riflescope lines to date.  These scopes have features normally only found on high-end scopes. It has a 5x magnification that makes it versatile in multiple shooting disciplines from up close targets to long range distances. It has our Fully-Multi Coated Optics that delivers a crystal clear bright image in in dark environments. The Argos family also has our exclusive XPL coating that protects your lenses from dirt, grease and harsh weather conditions.  The 6061T6 aircraft grade aluminum tube will protect these world class optics no matter what punishment you throw at it. WE didn’t build the Argos to just perform well optically we also built in features that make easy to adjust for any shot you have to take. Some models have Side Parallax Adjustment to give you the ability to adjust to any ranged right at your fingertips.  This along with the variety of second focal plane reticles give you easy elevation and windage adjustments.
