Hello friends. I’m interested in knowing your thoughts on the GPO brand scopes? Really like the looks of the standard Plex and German reticles. Thx.

A buddy of mine bought the passion 3 6-18x50 for his prairie dog AR. Very clear optics and very good finish. He said it is easy on the eye sitting behind it all day prairie dog hunting.

Their customer service is great as well. He put his rifle in a gun vise and while tightening it down, it flipped forward and came out of the vise landing turret down down on the concrete. Broke the turret but the rest of the scope was fine. He called them and told them exactly what happened. They replaced the scope no questions asked.

I have 2 Passion 3x 4-12's. Bought one and liked well enough to buy another one.

I have a Passion 3x9 w/illuminated #4 reticle. I just got it mounted, seems like a very solid scope, but do not have any experience with using it yet. The #4 has quite a bit of distance between the center and the wide bars of the reticle, but it was acceptable to me because it has an illuminated dot. It is mounted on my Browning X-Bolt .223 and I plan to use it for shooting predators. RJ

A buddy of mine is Arizona is a product tester for them, he's not on this forum.

On a coues hunt a couple years ago, they were doing top and bottom (side by side but vertical) comparisons with top of the line stuff and were VERY impressed.


And these zombies line up and eat from the media’s trough

Cowards CANNOT be free. Nor should they be.

I have one of the Passion 3x 4-12.Everytime I put my rifle to my shoulder to look through that scope it's like somebody turned the lights on.That scope is really clear and "bright".I'd buy another.

As Bob Hagel would say"You should not use a rifle that will kill an animal when everything goes right; you should use one that will do the job when everything goes wrong."Good words of wisdom...............

Just how many GPS scopes have you tried and compared against others? Or are you --once again -- just regurgitating hogwash for the sake of argument and bumping your post count?

The Japanese-made Passion 6x 2.5-15x56 that I had either equaled or outperformed scopes costing twice as much in terms of resolution and other critical optical comparisons. And -- just based on glass performance alone -- was one of THE best low-light scopes I have ever tried.

But hey, stick to your unsubstantiated vitriol and keep smiling...

I have a Passion 3-12x56. Very clear and bright in low light. Nice fit and finish. I own alpha German scopes. But I’m very pleased with the GPO.

We have been doing more and more with GPO and we've been getting exceptional feedback from the end users.
We are working on putting together some great opportunities on some GPO scopes, binoculars and rangefinders for the year end. Stay tuned or give a call, thanks

Price and area of manufacture.....may not mix well w some folks.

That may or may not have anything to do with actual product quality or performance.

Have only checked out one GPO and it seemed pretty nice.

With the Steiner GS being made in CO, Zeiss Conquest in Japan....a "German" scope not made in Germany seems to be the new norm.

It would be nice if they made a scope that weighed less than 1lb, without illumination, maybe with a more trustworthy sounding name than "passion".
