New contender in the optics arena GPO USA targets hunters with a brand new series of riflescopes called the Passion 3X series.

The Passion 3X lineup is German-designed and engineered but strives to balance high quality features with an affordable cost.

The series will initially offer six models: 3-9×40 illuminated German #4 or plex, 3-9×42 plex, 4-12×40 plex, 4-12×42 plex and 4-12×50 illuminated German #4. Select models are outfitted an extreme wide-angle field of view that extends range of adjustment as well as eye relief. Illuminated options feature a fiber-optically driven reticle with the newest iControl auto-off illumination to extend battery life.

Built on a 1-inch machined aluminum main tube, the scopes are equipped with durable metallic turret caps and adjustable internal turret knobs.

“Passion 3X hits the core of what most hunters are using in the field. It is incredibly well-built and will be immediately recognized as a leader in its space,” Michael Jensen, owner and CEO of GPO, USA said in a statement. “Feature for feature, spec for spec, this product simply outshines other competitive entry-premium European product lines.”

The Passion 3X series starts at a reasonable $299.99, capping off at $649.99 for the premium model.
