March Rifle Scopes

    Has anyone had any experience with March rifle scopes?
    If so, I'd love to hear your thoughts!

    Given their price tag, I would assume that they are a step above a Vortex/Delta, but don't quite measure up to a Swarovski, Zeiss, S&B, etc.?

    I'm considering one of these: https://www.marchscopes.co.uk/product/march-2-5x-25x42-rifle-scope/ - an all round, versatile optic, to be used for foxing and target shooting out to 400 metres...

    I have that model. Excellent versatile scope. Lighter than many of it's competitors without sacrificing any performance.

    How does it compare to a S&B, or a Zeiss/Swaro?
    Or is it equivalent?
    Or is it below par?

    The Bench rest people think it is the best scope available. All scopes involve trade offs. Magnification versus field of view versus clarity versus reticle etc. You pays your money , you makes your choice. There is no such thing as the perfect scope for everyone. You have to decide what you want it for primarily and then spend time analysing what is available. I have March, Leupold, Vortex, S&B, Sightron and Weaver Scopes. Each one is the best at what I use it for, in my opinion. Not everyone would agree with me.

    I have that exact scope on my stalking rig. March make some of the best scopes money can buy.

    However it's gonna be surplus to requirements soon as I have a Pm2 ultra Short on the way!

    The prices seem to be down from when i first seen/used them.
    Back then the 10-80 was about €3,699. It seems to be discontinued, not surprising as its over 10 years ago, but the prices i checked on the March site don't seem overly bad compared to other brands. I mean how much does a Swarovski or Zeiss V6 run these days? €3K+
