I am looking at the Sightron S-Tac and the Athlon Argos

The Sighton would be 4-20x50
The Athlon would be 6-24x50

They both can focus quite close. I believe Sighton is made in the Philipines and the Athlon is made in China.

My main concern is glass quality and clarity.

The feel and accuracy of the turrets would be second, but I often just use the hash marks anyway.

It will begin its life on a KIDD 10/22 and will be used for shooting paper and steel.

It could later end up on a 308 rifle sometime in the future -- again shooting paper and steel. No competitions.

Any thoughts or experiences you could share would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

I realize the Athlon is FFP and the Sightron is SFP

I probably prefer SFP scopes because of the larger reticle at lower power. But I must admit I usually shoot at the high power end anyway, so there will likely be very little difference for me.

Thanks again
