posted on March 4, 2020
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.
