    Received my March 1-10 , from Don @ Long Range.   Weighs a tad under 18 oz.  Found an old Aimpoint wide ring, that holds it securely.   Two narrow rings might work too.   The illuminated dot is  daylight bright & in the second focal plane so it stays the same size.   Probably be a good  100 yard & less hunting scope.  The rets are  thick, but for my poor eyesight that is   actually a plus.  Probably not for those who are shooting at pin heads.   Never shot it any, just mounted it, so can't say anymore.

    Pretty cool!  I was shooting some at 75 yards the other day @ 6x mag  and was having no issues.  I'd rather haul that thru the brush than a 50mm scope, lol.

    Great choice for that magnification range on an airgun, it'd be my #1 pick, and congrats to you!

    I have a couple March scopes, they build wonderful optics~!

    Beautiful scope.

     I hear you on the reticle and older eyes but, I still wish I could find something like the old Weaver Super Fine target reticle on a modern day scope with windage tree in 2ndFP or FFP, illuminated would be necessary as something so fine is only utilized when conditions are perfect and I'm looking to aim really really small.

    Is the reticle thick at only higher magnification? 

    With your poor eyesight at what magnification do the subtensions become useful? 

    Or too early to tell?

    The image below is not  very good.   I don't think I have the Tactacam set up right , it was raining , I had a window open and heat was leaving.  But you might be able to get the idea.  The image in the scope is crisp & clear.  The mounted squirrel was  @ 50 yards.   Oh, no mounted squirrels were harmed in this movie.  ( if this does not open , I will try again SAT.)

    Reticle Looks useable however did you adjust the parallax when you zoomed it in all the way to max power?

    For some reason the max zoom image in the video doesn't look that clear to me that's why I ask.

    Ok here is one at 40 yards 4-10 power.  The image in the scope is crisp & clear. I just cant get this tactacam to get a clear image.   But you can get the idea.  What i am seeing today, it is going to make a great squirrel rifle scope under 100 yards & that is more than enough to fill my needs.  

     
    & one @ 50..

    When did you order your scope? Just wondering how much longer my wait time is from the Jan sale.

    Dang I shoulda bought one of those too when they had the sale.

    Does it exhibit a fishbowl convex mirror effect at lowest magnification as you are panning?

    @ Odoyle I have not noticed it, but use mostly 6-10  but will check that out tomorrow.   I shot  lot today 40 & 50 yards & I found 6-8 power my favorite.  The illuminated dot really helps me too. 

    When you have it on higher powers. You  do notice the numerals on the horizontal part of the ret get a little hazy.  But If I had not been made aware of that before hand, I am not sure I would of noticed that.    Also sometimes when moving my head around & messing with the SF,  seems I can notice the  movement between the rets , kind of hard to explain.  But you know you have two rets that sorta overlay & if you move your head just right  you may notice that.  But it does not affect anything at all.  Just saying.  I am thinking I can set my parallax at 30 & be good from 20-50 yards.  It seem I am moving it very little. Definitely going to remove the big wheel, not going to need that.  

    I like it more today , than I did yesterday.  It is an easy scope to get behind & my single Aimpoint ring has it perfect height for a good  cheek weld.  Here is 50 shots  as fast as I could cycle & get back on target in 10 mph crosswind, 50 yards & scope set on 7 power & dot on 4 illumination.   I love the dot.

    Here is a photo, I took holding my phone a couple inches from eyepiece.  I don't remember what power, maybe  8 power or 10.  While better than my Tactacam, still does not do the scope justice.  40 yards
