RICHMOND, Va. (Dec. 12, 2018) — German Precision Optics (GPO) USA, has expanded its PASSION 3X riflescope line with the addition of the new 6-18×50 riflescope.

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 6-18×50 riflescope providesenhanced 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 6-18×50 features a solid, one-piece dust-proof, waterproof, nitrogen-filled body that offers constant point-of-impact and the ultimate in strength and durability.
