March 2.5-25×42 Review by Vince Bottomley at Target Shooter Magazine Website
Congratulations to Gary Costello (1st) and Tom Reynolds (2nd, 18 years old) at 1000yards GB National (UK)
March decided to develop a new tree reticle for 1-10x24FFP scope
“1-8x24Shorty vs 1-8×24 vs 1-10x24Shorty” Comparing March FFP LPVOs
Among March Scopes’ lineup, we have three FFP LPVOs (Low Power Variable Optic)
which are 1-8x24Shorty, 1-8×24 and 1-10x24Shorty March Scopes.
LPVOs for SFP are 1-4×24, 1-4.5×24, 1-10×24 (and 1.5-15×42) March Scopes.
Today I’d like to introduce and to also explain the difference of three March FFP LPVOs.
|Length||210mm (8.27inch)||256mm (10.08inch)||214mm (8.4inch)|
|Weight (with illumination)||485g (17.11oz)||560g (19.75oz)||505g (17.8oz)|
|Focus adjustment||100yd||10yd – infinity||10yd – infinity|
|Exit pupil||6.6mm(at1x), 3mm(at8x)||6.1mm(at1x), 3mm(at8x)||8.6mm(at1x), 2.4mm(at10x)|
|Daybright illumination||〇 Dual reticle (FFP + SFP reticle )|
|Fast focus eyepiece||〇|
There is an indicator called “exit pupil” to show the brightness of the image.
The definition of the “exit pupil” is the diameter of the bright circle which you can see through
the eyepiece lens (lens close to your eye) being distant for more than 30cm.
The larger the exit pupil is, the brighter your view will be.
A Scope with large exit pupil will be effective when hunting at dawn or at dusk.
If the exit pupil exceeds 7mm at the employed power, then you can see the same brightness as the naked eye even under dark condition.
At a same power, the larger the objective effective diameter is, the more you can collect light and the brightness will increase.
The diopter adjustment mechanism has been improved so you can adjust the eyepiece to your eye faster than ever before.
● Dual reticle assembled in 1-10x24Shorty
It has the convenience of the FFP reticle scale which magnifies and reduces according to the magnification
and the usability of the SFP reticle with the constant thickness (to the eye not the scale value) of the line as the magnification changes.
Placing the bright fiber dot illumination to the Second Focal plane reticle ensures that the illuminated dot is usable across the entire magnification range; from a dot sight at low magnifications to a precise illuminated dot for long range precision shooting at higher magnifications with the use of the scale.
We are a small custom manufacturer, but we will keep innovating to try our best to live up to each and every shooter’s requirements.
