German Precision Optics Introduces New 5X Magnification Riflescopes

RICHMOND, Va. (March 4, 2020) — German Precision Optics (GPO) announces two new riflescopes to its line of premium optics. Designed for today’s demanding hunter, the new PASSION™ 5X riflescopes offer precise, reliable and high quality performance for diverse hunting scenarios. Featuring a 30 mm tube, the proprietary GPObright™ high-transmission lens coating technology, PASSIONdrop™ hydrophobic exterior lens coatings and a double HD glass objective lens, the new 1-5x24i and 3.5-18x56i riflescopes provide hunters with enhanced clarity, exceptional brightness and true color from dawn to dusk.

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 usage 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.

The easy-to-read cm adjustable turret with rotation markings, fast-focus rubberized ocular, and an extra-wide magnification adjustment ring make both of these scopes ideal for any hunting situation. The 3.5-18x56 is available with the ballistic Mil-base and the 1.5x24i comes with the illuminated G4i reticle.

Second focal-plane scopes, the new 1-5x24i and 3.5-18x56i are crafted from a solid, one-piece dust-proof, waterproof, nitrogen-filled body that offers constant point-of-impact and the ultimate in strength and durability.
