Reply To: Holy Grail of Airgun Scopes
Hello again Doug, it is serendipity that you tell me this because a month or so ago I bought a Hawke Sidewinder 6.5-20x42mm from MidwayUSA…I was not happy with it for several reasons and decided to ship it back for a refund two weeks later. It had some good points but all in all I wasn’t happy with it…at 20x it was too blurry at the edges of the field of view. The day I was going to ship it back I got an email from MidwayUSA regarding their “New Arrivals”…and that is how I discovered these brand new Athlon scopes and thought what the hell, I might as well try one of them. And man am I glad I did! Doug I want you to go ahead and order one of these Athlon Argos 6-24x50mm FFP scopes today. Please just trust me when I say that you will never be happy with the Hawke again once you see through one of these Athlon’s. The difference will just blow your mind! Better yet, ask RNMike what he thinks of the new Athlon 6-24×50 FFP he got from Amazon just yesterday. Jump in my brother! The water is fine!
As for the Taipan Mutant I have no personal experience with it…other than I have an acquaintance up in north Florida that recently purchased one, and was very unhappy with his. So he took my advice and purchased a .22 Wildcat with the Huggett moderator… Well Doug, that’s all for now…other than to say I hope you take the plunge and try out one of these new Athlon Argos 6-24x50mm FFP scopes for yourself. You will be darn glad you did! And besides, what do you have to lose?
Best regards, Chuck
