Athlon Ares BTR (Bright Tactical Reticle) rifle scopes are related to the Athlon Midas BTR rifle scopes, the difference is that the Ares rifle scopes have reticles set in the first focal plane (the reticle changes with the magnification), and Midas BTR in the second focal plane (reticle size doesn't change with magnification). Curently there are two models available, the Ares BTR 2.5-15x50 and Ares BTR 4.5-27x50 models. Both models have 6 times magnification range, HD – high definition glass, with ˝Afitic˝ lens coatings on inner lenses for better light transmission and contrast. The outer lenses have protective coatings named ˝XPL coating˝ for scratch resistance and for repeling dirt, water and oil off the lenses.
Both models have big elevation range of 29 MIL for long range shooting, parallax adjustment, multi turn tactical turrets for quick elevation and windage adjustments, and zero stop function for not turning the turret under the zeroed rifle adjustment. The reticles are all illuminated, and Athlon Ares BTR rifle scopes are made of one piece aircraft grade aluminum for extra strength, are waterproof and argon purged for fog proof use at low temperatures.
Both models have a 30 mm main tube, and can be ordered in MOA/MOA or in MIL/MIL, so the click values and the reticles are matched.
The Athlon Ares BTR rifle scopes can only be mounted with 30 mm rings.
