March Scopes - FX Series - FFP - 5-40 x 56mm Gen 2
March-FX - 5-40x 56 - First Focal Plane - Gen 2
This zoom scope has an 8x magnification ratio. Available in six (6) versions. Two Mil Radian and four Minute of Angle (MOA) versions.
The m-rad version with an FML-1 reticle remains constant across the entire zoom range. Target ranging is accurate at any power. You can choose from two models. One version has one turn of adjustment dial of 5 m-rad, and one-click value is .05 m-rad (1/20th). The other version has 10 m-rad per one turn and 0.1 m-rad (1/10th) clicks.
The MOA version with the FMA-1 or FMA-2 reticle scale value also remains constant across the entire zoom range. Target ranging is accurate at any power. Can choose from two versions in each reticle model. One version has 25 MOA per turn of the dials and has 1/4 moa clicks. The other version has 10 MOA per turn of the dials and 1/8 MOA clicks which is usually more useful for target shooting. All these scopes are in an illuminated version or non-illuminated version.
Additionally, with the capability to set any position as the zero-point in elevation with the 0-set function, the shooter will never lose their starting calibration. As with all March scopes, high-end extra-low dispersion (ED) lenses are used and the 56mm front lens delivers superb optics. For illumination models, each level of reticle intensity (red) and can be operated by simply pressing the pressure switch within the focus dial knob. The new illumination switch has 6 levels and each level can be set or locked. One push of the pressure pad turns on and another push turns off. Auto turns off after one hour of inactivity. An STD illumination model switch is still available with 4 levels of illumination.
For Mil-rad version, the reticle centre "floating" dot size is .05 m-rad. For MOA the FMA-1 illuminated reticle has the centre "floating" dot of 1/4. The FMA-2 reticle is only available for non-illuminated MOA versions. The centre "floating" dot is 1/8 at all magnifications. The line thickness of the reticle grid section is half that of the FMA-1. Therefore it is not a "thick" reticle as is often associated with FFP and is similar to the thickness of reticles in SFP target scopes.
Also Available with the new PDK reticle for those looking for a "Christmas tree" style reticle.
The Gen 2 features the new wide-angle fast-focus eyepiece and locking turrets for elevation and windage.
This reticle is specifically designed for Target Shooting by Stuart Elliott and Gary Costello. The 1 MOA line spacing (graduations) remains constant over the entire zoom range so a target shooter can confidently use these graduations for calculated hold-offs at any and all zoom (magnification) points. Also with FFP scope design, the point of aim does NOT shift throughout the entire zoom range. So a shooter can confidently zoom up or down in the process of shooting one target session. No point of aim shift. The hold off points of the graduated reticle remains constant with 1 moa spacings, relative to the target at any distance, on any zoom level. A simple, 100% accurate, precise aiming platform.
