March tactical scope

Hi Guys

Well I finally took the plunge and bought a MARCH scope.
Itís a Tactical 2.5-25X.
Here in New Zealand it cost NZ$4,200 which is about the same
as a Leupold VX-7 4.5-18X. The thing just oooozes quality,Ö.
silky smooth adjustments coupled with a tough as nails robust
feel like my Nightforce 5.5-22X.
This scope with its 30mm tube is quite a bit shorter than the Nightforce
(see photo) and 10oz lighter.
It features a MTR-1 reticule which is similar to the Nightforce NP-R1
only itís slightly finer, uncluttered and has 2MOA graduations.
The reticule can be quickly illuminated to 4 intensity levels via a
button on the parallax turret,unlike the ugly blisters stuck on the
Swarovski and Leupold eyepieces or the tiny,fidly screw setting on the Nightforce.
I put the March and Nightforce set at 20X side by side under normal lighting
conditions and viewed the fine twigs on some distant trees about 800m.
Not really scientific I know, but the March was definitely optically superior.
I have yet to test them in low light which should be interesting as the objective
on the March is 42mm against the 50mm on the Nightforce.
With itís wide zoom range and compactness this scope should do well on
Red deer up close in the bush and long range shots at deer, chamois and thar
in the mountains.

Re: March tactical scope

Great info
Does it come with a sunshade?
How 'fine' is the reticle w/resp to the NXS NP-R1?
Does the eypiece rotate on power changes like the NXS?
Are the Objective and eypiece threaded?
What will you use for lens covers?
Do you know if the scope available with a standard med-fine crosshair?
Would your March adjust as many MOA as the NXS?

Re: March tactical scope

Hi Guys

In answer to your questions regarding the MARCH Tactical.

1. Yes it comes with a sunshade.
2. The reticule appears to be slightly finer than the NXS NP-R1.
3. The eyepiece Does Not rotate on power change.
4.The eyepiece and objective are threaded to accept protective glass
filters 37mm for eyepiece and 46mm for objective.
5. I will use quality glass covers.
6. Yes the scope is available with fine cross hair but I donít know
the dimensions.
7. The MARCH has 100MOA vertical and horizontal travel.

I noticed on 6mmBR.com the other day that the new F-class
world champ was using a MARCH 10-60x on his winning rig.
I know of two guys over here who are going to put 5-35 tacticals
on their 338 Magnums for long range deer shooting.

All the best.
Greg
