It does remind me of my Cronus scopes - some striking similarities. I don't care for any of the three reticles as opposed to either the original Cronus or the newer BTR though. Be interesting to find out how the optical quality compares to that of the Athlons.

Watch the review by Richard uttings in the U.K. on YouTube. He does a comparison of the delta Stryker and the new athlon. The Stryker beats it in his view. Again, all subjective. Go to 17:22 minutes to hear the athlon BTR review then he does the Delta Stryker HD review right after.

not to pee in anyone's cherios, but what happens to you, the owner, if you have issues? does this company have any presence in the US for support? Athlon, Vortex, Nightforce, Burris, etc, etc, all have reps and/or QC/QA/engineering in the states so support for when things will go wrong is easy. I don't pretend to understand ITAR, but isn't shipping a scope (even for repair) to outside the US a huge PITA?

a Polish designed scope, built in Japan (nothing against LOW, most of my optics are built there), and sold by a company in the UK just doesn't strike me as a great idea when other scopes of similar spec and cost are readily available. Maybe Delta will be the next Vortex or S&B, only time will tell.

Everything works flawlessly. Turrets have great clicks and adjustments. I was lucky in that my windage was close to being set right perfectly out the box. The overall contrast and image quality is superb. I’ve only shot 30 rounds with a few different bullets, but so far it’s above expectations. I will be taking it out again tomorrow to shoot a 100rds or so.

Glad you like it. I am really enjoying the one I've got here.
