RICHMOND, Va. (Dec. 12, 2018) — German Precision Optics (GPO) USA, has expanded its PASSION 3X riflescope line with the addition of the new 6-18x50 riflescope. German designed and engineered, this new scope features the perfect range of magnification for long range shooting and a large objective lens for shooting in low light conditions.

For strength and durability the 6-18x50 is built on a 30mm machined aircraft-aluminum main tube. It comes standard with the GPO MOA ballistic reticle, which is calibrated at 18 power, and 1/4-MOA target turrets for long-range elevation and windage adjustments come standard. Custom Kenton turrets for several popular calibers will also be available.

Featuring the proprietary GPObright™ high-transmission lens coating technology, PASSIONdrop™ hydrophobic exterior lens coatings and a double HD glass objective lens, the 6-18x50 riflescope provides enhanced clarity, exceptional brightness and true color from dawn to dusk. The easy-to-read target turret with rotation markings, fast-focus rubberized ocular, and an extra-wide magnification adjustment ring make this scope ideal for any shooting situation.

A second focal-plane scope, the 6-18x50 features a solid, one-piece dust-proof, waterproof, nitrogen-filled body that offers constant point-of-impact and the ultimate in strength and durability. This new addition to the Passion 3X line, like all GPO products purchased in the USA includes the GPO, USA’s Spectacular Lifetime Warranty™.
