    Ordered this Neos scope this morning while over Wisconsin heading back to Seattle from Washington DC, spent the flight there Monday and some time in the evenings after work reading and reading and reading about Athlon and what people have been saying. A lot of positive things out there and some ‘interesting’ reviews. I say that because some seem to be a bit off….not just uneducated horrible grammar and misspellings, but off like they are not written by actual hunters, shooters or sportsmen. So anyways, I ordered this in hopes to replace a Burris Fullfield II 4.5-14x44mm with a ballistic reticle on my Winchester 70 in 270 Win. I have used this scope for well over 12 years and it has been fantastic. Made in the Philippines, not the older US made. But I have wanted a bit more magnification and the side parallax. 30mm would be nice but for this rifle 1″ was fine if I was able to get the power and side focus. Ordered it in the morning and Amazon delivered it the evening, nice, here are my quick workbench thoughts as I mounted it up. Optics, before I put it on the rifle I did the same/same settings and compare both of them against the houses in the neighborhood. Equal to the Burris, I am happy Finish: it is new and my Burris has been used well, so ya it looks better for sure Objective: same 44mm lens but the size is less without the OA, this looks much nicer to me Turrets: the caps look modern, larger and square at the ends. My Fullfield had the old style knobs under the caps that had difficult markings and small knurled edges on the short posts so these larger knobs under the caps of the Neos are great. I can clearly see numbers, directions and revolution marks. Resetting zero is easy enough but obviously no zero-stop. Clicks feel good and noticeable and far better than those on my Burris, however there is a tolerance issue with the turret. Small movement so the machining isn’t quite there, but at this price point I am very happy. Would this be acceptable on a scope 2x or more in price….absolutely not. Side focus: this knob was a little tight, but no slop. Will have to get it to the range to see how it focuses and reads Reticle: I got the standard X as the BDC was only available with illumination and I wasn’t interested in that. Wish a standard BDC reticle was offered. Magnification ring: this moves freely from low to high, quick and issue free. No slop. Fast focus: this moves a bit too easy. I was able to adjust it nicely for my view, but afraid it will bump out of focus by rubbing again my clothes and/or pack. Wish is was tight like the side focus or had a lock feature. Eye relief: so far while mounting the scope it seems good, no red flags. Yes it tightens up at max power but that is what happens. Not even close and finicky like some of the other budget scopes I have (Weaver Kaspa tactical 3-12×44, Simmons 6-24×44) On par with my sons Vortex Crossfire II 4-16×50 All in all, I am so far happy with the purchase. This weekend I will have it on the range and will see how it works out. No regrets so far, it was this or the Vortex like my sons, but I wanted the additional power so I am happy I picked this up. Will provide an update later Read more

    I’d love to buy high dollar scopes for every gun but sometimes you just need functionality and a good hunting scope. This Neos is just the ticket, great glass, great eye relief, parallax, tactile vertical and horizontal adjustment for less than $150 is amazing. I own five Athlon scopes and this is the least expensive (not cheap) one of the bunch and it is perfect for my Savage 93 fv in 22 wmr. Let me say that again, PERFECT! Thanks Athlon another home run. I’ve now bought three of these, added to my 10/22 and my cz457. Love these scopes! Read more

    I went against my gut instinct on buying this scope. After reading countless mixed reviews all over the web. I decided to give it a try. (More the brand than particularl model) Needless to say I regret that decision. The overall appearance of the optic doesn’t look to bad. Decent looking and was boxed rather presentable for the money I spent on it. But the glass is cloudy/hazy/out of focus looking when you crank up the magnification. Seems to level out in the 10-12x range on clarity. Which is not acceptable. And it seems overly difficult to get on target with it. I seem to hunt around to get the objective inline. And the side parallax focus doesn’t seem to really do much. The knob just feels cheap when you turn it. Granted it has held zero for the +-dozen .338 win mag hand loads I’ve shot using it. But do yourself a favor and keep on looking. The vortex scopes on my other rifles are 3-4 times the optics this one is. Athlon might make better scopes? I don’t know. But what I do know is this one is 100% not one of them. Don’t be me! You’ll be pissed at yourself for it. Trust me Read more

    I put this on a 22″, bull barreled 6.5 Creedmoor AR. 60 rounds through the rifle and so far it’s been very clear, even at the high magnification, and has held zero with no problems. Off sandbags, rifle will shoot 1/3 MOA groups at 100 yards using the scope at ~12X. I haven’t really used the illumination in it other that just messing around to make sure it worked. Read more

    Well, I have to say I am shocked at what I paid for this scope. For $159, I honestly wasn’t expecting much. What I received was WAY beyond my expectations. There has been some quiet buzz about this company and their products…nearly all of it positive. I thought I would try one of their lower end scopes to test the waters. I’ll first note really the only thing that leaves a little to be desired, optical clarity. It’s a 6 or 7 out of 10 (if a one is a Tasco and a ten is a high end Zeiss). I assume that it improves as you go up the line. Still VERY manageable for a hunting scope that I plan to use out to maybe 300 or 400 yards. I found it to be comparable to the Crossfire series in the Vortex line. It was also about $30 bucks cheaper than the Crossfire. That alone makes it worth it, throw in the illuminated BDC reticle…and it’s a home run. The warranty is also impressive and adds a level of reassurance to the purchase. Overall, I wouldn’t hesitate to purchase this scope again…as a matter of fact…I have one of the higher end models sitting in my cart right now that I plan to purchase shortly. Read more

  6. Diamond integration

    Clear all the way through the zoom range even at 18X. This was a challenge to find a scope that’s 1. Clear glass 2. Usable reticle BDC500IR (not just an X) 3. Great eye box and relief 4. Parallax adjustment 5. Illuminated not a must. It does have 5. UNDER 200.00 Only 1 thing I could say that is just a meh but notable for others to know. When I look in the distance of 400 yard and beyond; the image is clear when you go all the way infinity but back up about 2mm. I don’t want people thinking this scope is not crisp at 18X because it’s quite impressive! I recommend this scope!! This is mounted on my Ruger Precision Rimfire. I’ll never use the turrets or need to dope the scope for any shooting. Zero to the ammo and forget about it. Perfect scope for this .22lr. Read more
