Does anyone know whether  the MP-8 reticle in the IOR 2.5-10x42 FFP illuminated has the floating dot in the center, or solid lines like the SFP model?
 
Also, if someone has this scope, at what magnification would the reticle become large enough to see in very low light conditions? I've got one on the way (back ordered) and was curious as well as hopeful! thanks...

 I got one last spring from SWFA.  Mine has the MP-8 reticle with a floating (1/10 mil.?) dot.
 The illuminated reticle is usable at any magnification in complete darkness for aiming purposes, actually TOO bright at the higher illumination settings. But it gets pretty thin below about 5x when the illumination is turned off.
 Curiously, my reticle has no thick sections at all, as the promotional photos on the SWFA website depict. It is a moderately thin crosshair with the half-mil ranging hash marks and center dot. There is no Duplex-type thicker section on any of the crosshairs at any magnification. (FFP, of course). I asked about this and was told that IOR occasionally changes the reticle specs.
 Not really a problem for me; I happen to like mine fine just as it is.
 I think Хуеглот adressed the reticle question I had, but I can't recall the posting or forum. He posted a photo of one that he had in stock that had the crosshair intersection with no dot in it.  That was this past fall, sometime.

 The third word in the second-to- last line is not the name I typed in. Somebody is screwing around with a word filter of some sort. Sorry.

Thanks for sharing that with me, guess I can only wait and see. Those rare reticles on certain models might be a collector item to IOR fans someday?
