6-24x50

RICHMOND, Va. (Nov. 21, 2018) — German Precision Optics (GPO), USA has introduced the Passion 4X premium riflescope line. German designed and engineered, these scopes bring quality and value together in a scope line that offers higher magnification and large low-light objective lenses. The Passion 4x riflescopes are built on a 30 mm machined aluminum main tubes and are available in either 6-24x50 or 3-12x56.

The Passion 3-12x56 is available with or without the GPO proprietary iControlTM illumination on the G4 reticle. The G4i fiber-optic illumination technology system automatically powers down the illumination when the electronic module has been stationary for more than 3 hours and alerts the user when the battery has only 15 percent remaining life. The 3-12x56 is the perfect scope for low-light conditions. The new 6-24X50 30mm scope offers an excellent range of adjustment, a custom MOA ballistic reticle and a custom Kenton turret made for your favorite caliber, making it the perfect scope for long-range shooting.

For optimum light transmission, both riflescopes feature double HD glass and the proprietary GPOBrightTM lens-coating technology. Second focal-plane scopes, the Passion 4x line reticles will remain the same size throughout all magnifications. Additionally, the solid, one-piece dust-proof, waterproof, nitrogen-filled riflescope bodies offer constant point of impact and the ultimate in strength and durability. All GPO products purchased in the USA include the GPO, USA’s Spectacular Lifetime WarrantyTM. Full details of this warranty can be found at www.gpo-usa.com.
