Athlon Argos BTR 8 34×56 lacks a zero stop function other than the included plastic washers




The Athlon Argos 8-34 x 56 Riflescope is designed to provide the best shooting tool in any hunting situation. The fully multi-coated lenses help by effectively reducing reflected light and increasing light transmission. This results in much brighter images compared to the normal single-coated lenses.

In addition, the riflescope is able to withstand wet conditions and rapid temperature changes thanks to the argon purging, which is done using big-size inertia gas.
