March Scopes FX Tactical 4.5-28x52mm Ultra Short Wide Angle Riflescope FFP 

Featuring the FML-TR1 reticle with Illuminated Center - D28HV52WFIML-FML-TR1

March Scopes made their name with some of the best glass in the business, while custom-building each scope by hand to order in Japan for the most demanding target shooter.  Along the way, March got noticed, and has expanded into more tactical scopes as well, and the Tactical FX model 4.5-28x52mm Wide Angle Ultra Short scope is a major player in the precision and tactical shooting world. 

The March brand of high-end riflescopes and reticles are designed for tactical, precision shooting and target shooting. The March family of riflescopes is produced by Deon Optical Design, a Japan-based optics manufacturer that excels in the production of high-quality rifle scopes by the use of a combination of traditional and modern manufacturing techniques. The company has been in business for a little over 15 years, but has since established a solid position in the world of professional rifle scopes and reticles. 

The March FX series of scopes feature First Focal Plane, 6x to 8x zoom factor and a wide angle eyepiece, extra-low dispersion glass lenses, multi-coated optics, parallax adjustment from 9.1m to infinity, zeroing elevation turrets, 34mm tube and argon filled waterproofing and antifogging, with world-class engineering and production that March has become famous for.  The FX Wide Angle ultra short scopes were designed to eliminate optical aberration without compromise, utilizing high-end extra-low dispersion (ED) lenses.

Temperature Anti-Drift Lens System
In the latest optical systems, a new lens material has been developed to accommodate changes in environmental temperature by altering the refractive index of the lenses. This new lens material has been adopted to create a more stable lens system that naturally adapts to changes in temperature to maintain focus and clarity over a wide range of conditions.

Turret Dials

0.1mil click style, with 10 mil turret revolution and zero-set on the elevation turret.  Tactical exposed elevation turret and capped windage turret is standard.

Wide Angle Eyepiece
25 Degree Wide Angle Eyepiece will enhance FOV throughout the 6.2 magnification range. Compared with our standard scopes with 20 degree, this is wider by 25%.

Super ED lens
By incorporating Super ED lenses (High Master lens system), we are able to reduce the chromatic aberration.
