    10x zoom ratios! Simply amazing! If they would create a tactical version like the text states, possibly for military use, it would sell like wildfire!

    2.5-25x50 with lots of adjustment would be NICE.

    For what they cost I'll stick to IOR for now , the one S&B I ave is nice but I sure as hell woulden't have paid full price for it now.

    The power range would be nice but is it worth the cost? not for me.

    it is some great glass though

    I saw one the other day at the range. Did a side by side with my Nightforce and the March was a bit brighter and seemed to have the edge on resolution, but I thought they were marketing to the benchrest boys. The reticles seemed geared to benchrest, but I can say that the optics clarity,etc. are impressive 30-338

    I had the chance to buy one at a 1k match and the owner was upfront and informed me that the reason he was selling it was that the reticule would move when the magnification was changed---and it did. I passed and for that, kind of money will stick to NF on my BR guns.

    This shooter BTW was one of the top shooters last year and he Does know what he is doing. Just goes to show you that nothing is perfect. Was disappointed to say the least because in the 1k BR game everyone is looking for the silver bullet!!

    Man, I'm in the car with ya on that one! I purchased a S&B 5-25x56 PM II a year ago. It is one remarkable optical instrument, and I'm glad I have it, but I'm not sure I'd dish out what I did again.

    Has anyone tried their 2.5x25 tactical yet?
    It's has the 10x zoom range, but is the resolution/clarity enough difference from NF to warrant the >$1K more in price?

    Same with the Premier - anyone compared it to a NF, Swaro, Zeiss?

    I want value that matches cost: The problem is that one can't view these scopes at their local dealer. Is anyone doing a worthy comparison on these top quality products?

    Hi Guys

    To reply to csumpm.

    I have just replaced my nightfoece 5-22NSX with a MARCH Tactical 2.5-25X.
    Check out my post at this site 08-06-09. or click on page 8 at bottom of page.

    The MARCH can do everything the NF but in a smaller, lighter package.

    Regards
    Greg

    Hi Greg,

    Appreciate the reply :)

    I was getting ready to plunk down the bills ($2750 US) so I dropped an note to DEON Optical Design Corp in Japan (the makers of the March brand) asking about the warranty...

    It is only 5 yrs which, as you already know, is a very short time in the scope business ... I didn't get the warm and fuzzy after reading it so I am having cold feet.

    Thx!
