I took some pictures of the scopes that we on display at the Nationals for those that wanted to see the March scopes. These scopes (basically custom made) demand top dollar for those that want the top of the line in optics. Sorry to say that I did not get pics looking through the scopes so there is no representation of the different reticles available. Enjoy







The scopes that you see are (sorry if I got some of these wrong) left to right 8-80x, 5-50x, 36-55x, 8-32x, 6-24x and I am not sure about the one to the far right. Price wise.....lets just say that if the tripod tipped over and ruined all those scopes, you would be out about the same as it would cost to buy an average new car.

opportunity to look through these scopes and the pleasure was all mine....brilliant clear optics....and controls that rotate sooooo smoooothly, you would believe that they were riding in hydraulic fluid.

Paul it was nice to see you and your family.

Life is short...slow down and enjoy

I have to admit that the one I liked best was the 5-50. I just don't think that the scope with 80 power would be practical for me and the 50x had a reticle to die for. Hard for me to justify the cost of a scope that translates to more than 3 times the cost of what I am using now, but if I had the money to spend, heck why not.

I do get the opportunity to peek through Al's March X every now and then. What a scope !
I agree with Paul that 50X is plenty....silver would be nice too...
