    Hi Guys[​IMG]

    Well I finally took the plunge and bought a MARCH scope.
    It’s 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,….
    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 it’s 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 it’s 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.

    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?

    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 don’t 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.
