    You should contact the IOR distributor directly with this question at
    www.valdada.com

    I believe most of their variables are second focal plane but some of their variables with illuminated reticles are 1st focal plane.

    For example the 4-14 x50 is 2 focal plane but the 4-14x50 with illuminated reticle is 1st focal plane and so the range finding reticle works at all magnifications.

    Just in case it interests you,
    http://www.premierreticles.com/

    supply some Leupold 30mm tube variables with 1 st focal plane reticles. If you already own a Leupold 30mm tube scope the may be able to convert it from 2nd to first focal plane.

    The IOR 6-24x50 is a second focal plane scope. The 2.5-10x42 is avalible in first or second.

    The new 6-24x50 35mm tube Ill. MP-8 scopes should be in any day now.

    I also talked to Marty at Badger Ordnance and he is hoping to have 35mm rings out in time for the shot show.
