German Precision Optics (GPO) has expanded its line of optics with two new riflescopes. Designed with hunters in mind, GPO's new Passion 5X riflescopes offer performance for a diverse range of hunting scenarios. Boasting 30mm maintubes, proprietary GPObright high-transmission lens coating technology, PASSIONdrop hydrophobic exterior lens coatings, and double HD glass objective lenses, the new 1-5X 24mm(i) and 3.5-18X 56mm(i) are of a second focal plane (SFP) design for easier adjustment at range.
Exclusive to GPO and featured on the new 5X magnification scopes is the “micro-fiber optic dot” iCONTROL illumination system. This proprietary system can be adjusted between barely visible for low-light conditions or extremely bright for daylight use, and features an extreme-fine microfiber optic dot for precise close and long-range shooting. The system automatically powers down the illumination when the electronic module has been stationary for more than three hours, and alerts the user when the battery has 15-percent power remaining.
For adjustment, the scopes utilize an easy-to-read adjustable turret with rotation markings, a fast-focus rubberized ocular and an extra-wide magnification adjustment ring.The 3.5-18X 56mm(i) is available with the ballistic Mil-base, while the 1-5X 24mm(i) comes with the illuminated G4i reticle.
