Athlon Optics recently announced the addition of two new feature-rich riflescopes to its Ares line. The Athlon Ares ETR features a 1-10X magnification range and a first focal plane reticle.

The Ares’ 10X magnification range pairs with a reticle designed to duplicate the speed of a red dot at 1X. But it still offers the extended range capabilities of a precision reticle at 10X.

The scopes feature Ultra High Definition ED-Glass, illuminated reticles and a 34mm tube. The system excels in lowlight conditions and tactical and hunting situations alike, according to Athlon Optics. The scope comes with either a FFP MIL-based or BDC MOA-based reticle. Built for .223/5.56mm 68-69-grain BTHP cartridges, it offers a wide range of application. The scope utilizes turret design with capped windage and locking elevation. It includes Athlon’s Precision Zero Stop System as well.

AFMC Advanced Fully Multi-Coating enhances light transmission. Meanwhile, the UHD Glass Extra-Low Dispersion glass reduces chromatic aberration. The resulting system delivers bright images across the light spectrum.

The Locking Elevation Turret feature allows shooters to push down to lock the turret. Simply pull up and turn to adjust. The feature prevents the elevation know from being turned accidentally, helping maintain zero.

The Precision Zero Stop System allows shooters to lock down the zero position. It dials back with a sharp, precise stop at the zero mark. The Athlon Ares ETR 1-10×24 retails for $1,139.99. For even more information, please visit
