Reply To: I would like to buy some really nice glass.
Can’t say anything about the Athlon scopes, as they are not available in the EU (afaik)
Here in EU, I find the Delta Optical 3-24x56ED about as good as it gets for around 1000$ in the 25x mag. class. Very fine dotted reticle.
As a bonus, it parallaxes down to 10m, ideal for airguns.
The SIII 10-50×60 (which I own one) is a well proven scope, and very useful for different airgun disciplines (BR/FT/plinking)
The contrast and lack of chromatic abberation of the Delta is a class above the Sightron if you ask me.
