I spent a lot of time looking for a compact scope. I went with the Athlon Helos BTR 2-12x42 mil version. It’s under twelve inches. Which was a must for my rifle. Wanted the new Intergrix 3-18X44. It’s UTG’s upper new line of scopes. My dealer called. And they said it won’t be available till next spring. At shot show they said this year. Too bad. Because they are supposed to have Japanese glass.
