They are real... big price tag.  Glass is superior, I have seen one at one of the ranges I go to.  Got to shoot a few rounds with it.  Fine crosshair reticle.  I don't know what the durability is but it is top of the line in adjustment repeatability and glass quality.  I never saw the guy again... he was sighting in a bench rest rifle.  I would love to have one.

ILya is testing one, a 2.5-25, I think.

I thought about getting one, 5 year warranty, I'll pass.

We've got one of their 1-10x scopes for T&E and R&D.
 
Very good stuff.

I saw all of their current 10X zoom variable scopes at SHOT, and they looked to be superb!  Optically, they can probably hold their own against any scope made.  They have a price tag to match!

The only negative I could see to them is they have a short warranty period of, I believe only 5 years, but that may change.

They aren't made in large quantities, so outside of precision shooting circles, they aren't well known.

March scopes are quite possibly the best scope at any price. They are way over engineered, and are known for their top-quality Japanese glass and their perfect tracking.

The 5-year warranty is not a real issue, because Deon will fix or replace the scope as long as they exist as an ongoing concern. The only reason that the warranty is capped at 5-years is due to Japanese law, which takes into account the size of a company when capping their warranty terms. Deon is not a huge company, so they are capped at an unreasonable 5-years for their written warranty. A large company like Nikon would be allowed to publish a lifetime warranty. Deon will stand behind their product, no matter what Japanese law forces them to put on paper.

Welcome to OT, gglass!

I'd heard the same thing with regards to Deon and the warranty as it pertains to Japanese law.

One of our members, Koshkin, did a pretty thorough test of a March X scope and came away very impressed with it!  I've never heard anything but praise for these scopes from people who've used them.

I wish I could justify the price tag, as I'd love to own one.

Yeah, a 2.5-25x scope with awesome glass and perfect tracking would work for me, too.

Anybody need a kidney?

I found their site but can't find anyone in the US with a website with prices.  Any help?  What kind of price tag are we looking at for the new FFP?
