GPO USA PASSION 3X 3-9x42 Riflescope Wins Gray's Best
Gray’s Sporting Journal has awarded the GPO USA PASSION 3X 3-9x42 riflescope its coveted Gray’s Best Award as one of the editors’ top choices for hunting and shooting gear for 2019 in Vol. 43, Issue 7 of the magazine.
“GPO Stands for German Precision Optics, a company founded several years ago by a group of senior German optics executives with the goal of combining German technology and production standards with Far Eastern precision and low-cost production,”wrote Gray’s Terry Wieland. “Design, engineering and quality control are all done in Germany. The American branch is headed by Mike Jensen, and few industry executives know American hunting (and hunters) as well as he does. The result is a line of riflescopes and binoculars that look German and perform as if they were German, but seem to be missing a few digits from the price.
“The 3X line is not extensive—yet—but consists of the eminently useful (but neglected of late) one-inch scopes. Among these is the one I would nominate as the single best for most hunting situations: 3-9x42. It lists at $400, astonishingly inexpensive by today’s German optics standards. Some would call it ‘no frills,’ but a better description would be ‘no unnecessary impediments.’ Waterproof and shock-proof with a Plex reticle, positive but easy adjustments, and excellent optical quality, this is the kind of scope you want to buy a few of, just so you can always have one available. At the same time, the scope is missing nothing essential, including focus adjustment on the ocular bell and long eye relief for use on rifles with heavy recoil. GPO’s top executives are not only optics experts but also hunters and shooters, and it shows. This scope is the company’s ‘work horse.’ Who could disagree?” Wieland concluded.
The 3-9x42 is part of the Passion 3X line and comes standard withfive caliber-specific turret rings, pre-engraved to select Hornady ammunition in calibers .223 Rem., 6.5 Creedmoor, .308 Win., .30-’06 Sprg., and .300 Win. Mag. The Passion 3X line also includes one-inch scopes in a 3-9x40 illuminated, 4-12x42, 4-12x50 illuminated and the recently introduced 6-18x50 30mm scope.
