March Scopes - Fixed Power - Second Focal Plane
The March fixed power 40x, 50x and 60x were the first models produced by the Deon Optical Corporation from Japan. They have some unusual, yet simple design features. They have become 'the benchrest standard'.
The whole scope body is machined from one solid billet of special alloy. This is expensive, yet essential. The lenses are special ED technology. Extra low dispersion lenses as used by the very best Japanese camera and microscope makers. The lenses are permanently glued into place and the whole design contains no plastic parts. All metal and glass. Finally the tube is filled with Argon gas. Tube diameter 30mm and objective lens 52mm. Finally these scopes are carefully assembled by hand, one at a time, by engineers with 30 plus years experience. Each component is perfectly matched and assembled by hand. This is why these scopes do not move point of aim unintentionally at all.
The Benchrest World Champions from Australia (Brendan Atkinson, Stuart Elliott, Paul Sullivan and Craig Whittleton) each used 40x and 50x March scopes to win the 10th World Championships held in South Africa 2009. Mike Rattigan from the USA won the Individual 2 Gun Gold medal at the World Championships in 2007 using a 40x March scope.
