    Athlon Optics Scopes have a great following on this forum.  Check it out and see what you think. Alternatively, do a search and PM some owners for their thoughts.

    I have an Athlon Helios 6-24×50 scope on my Weihrauch HW80 and have not had any issues.  12x was too little for me, and in practice I don't use anything more than ~14x for my application, so if I were to do this again, I would consider the Ares BTR 2.5-15×50 (slightly lighter, more eye relief, better glass).  My previous scope was a Vortex Diamondback 4-12×40 AO and it was solid on the HW80 too.  I believe that scope has been discontinued.

    OP – you did not mention a price range/point? That Ares BTR 2.5-15X50 MM is $700-$800 (very nice…) and your gun is around $1K. 

    What price range? And, are you using your gun for FT or Hunting, do you prefer FFP vs SFP, etc.  What are your requirements besides saying  you want a "good scope?" 

    Joe Rhea has some good YouTube scope review videos at various price points from $100 – $500 and beyond; and I think that will give you some good ideas. Google his videos and that may help you.
