Doug posted this on one of his CLNY adds in the Optics forum last week.

My son and I went to the range today to do a little shooting with our 6.8 Wichester Precision Mags and I saw several guys shooting Athlon scopes and one guy even spotting with a 10x pair of Athlon EL binoculars.......looks to be really nice glass for the $$!!

Lots of Athlon scopes at our range too. The Athlon Cronus are great binoculars for the money.


In lieu of paying for college, our son asked us to buy him a Bassboat. Now I live through him vicariously. smile

Lemme interject some perspective,from The REAL World...as opposed to Stupid Fhuqks swooning schit from the couch. HINT.

Firstly,that Assalon cited is 34mm tubed,weighs 36.5 ounces and "boasts" a "whopping" 32 Mils of erector correction(less than 1 Mil per ounce). On top of that Stupidity,it costs(MSRP) $1400-ish. KNOWING same,it is funnier than fhuqk,for it to be "subjected" to a "Test" which actuates less than 25% of it's erector's travel,does less than NOTHING to shift impact and there is no zoom shift quantification(s). Standard Window Licking Fhuqking STUPIDITY. Hint.

WHY in the fhuqk,would one "Test" an erector,to travel less than it's windshield? Read that again. Now one more time. Hint.

Pardon actuality,in a parcel that mounts lower,has FAR greater erector travel,is impervious to zoom shift and wears parallax adjustment that doesn't get "nudged"...while weighing a full fhuqking POUND less. Hint.

Your First Fhuqking Hint RINK

So the while OP's "tracking" was/is SERIOUSLY fhuqking LACKING...it do remain fhuqking Hilarious! Doubly so,when one weighs who are selling these pieces of fhuqking schit,profits from same and extrapolating their "trigger time" to same and those "revelations". Hint.

It's never been difficult to cypher who shoots...and who don't.

Hint.

Just sayin'.

Laffin'.

Boxer,
Can you please give me a hint if that SS scope will hold zero on my Gamo springer?

Thanks in advance.

In fairness,I don't shoot anything as schitty as Gamo...but can speak to Springers wearing Fixed Fhuqkers.

HW 97's.

AofA sent the wrong mount(1") and I had to slum a Reupold 6x42 A/O for a spell,waiting on the 30mm RWS Droop Mount(27 MOA). Peeled it off,just as soon as the Mail hit my mitts!

Wayyyyyyyyyyyy better machine,so configured.

They are rather exceptional aboard a Feinwerkbau 300S as well.

[Linked Image]

I shoot 'em on a few Anschutz 22LR's too and a single Anschutz 1717D HB Hummer. They've no equal there,either.

[Linked Image]

Also gun 'em on a pile of Custom 10/22's,coupla Garrow Hummers and a Franklin 17 Whizzum. From there I shoot 'em in Hornets,K-Hornets,223's,223AI's,22 Grendel's,22-250's,22-250AI's,22 Speedmire and should have a 22 BR shipping my way next week,which will of course be scoped same.

In .243" I gun 'em in 270's,6BR's,243 Grendel's,243 Kreedmire's,243Win's,243AI's,6-284's and a 6-06...offa the toppa' my head. (1) of each chambering pictured.

[Linked Image]

I doubt I have many more than 80 of 'em and tend to shoot a "smidge",less an optical or mechanical "issue".

It'd be the FIRST glass I'd put on anything.

Hint.(grin)

LOL, Japanese scopes usually have dial increments that adjust less than the advertised 0.1 MRAD. Good to know. What a joke. But I guess that guy has always been a bit of a clown.
