Midlothian, Virginia, February 10, 2017—GPO, USA, the industry’s newest premium optics company, introduces the GPOTAC™ 8Xi riflescope.  This product is German-designed and engineered to bring extreme features for the benefit of most serious tactical shooters.  The GPOTAC™ 8Xi is built on a 34mm machined aircraft aluminum main tube and comes standard with an iControl™ fiber-optic, auto-off, illuminated, and mil-spec horseshoe reticle.  It has an 8x zoom factor.

“GPOTAC™ 8Xi is a scope like no other—it’s amazing.  It’s packed with optical brilliance and technical features expected from super-premium tactical riflescopes,” says Michael Jensen, owner and CEO of GPO, USA.  “We were very careful to make sure every demanded feature available was jammed into this optic.  You’ve got to see this scope.”

The GPOTAC™ 8Xi riflescope will initially be offered in a 1–8x24i, with an iControl™ illuminated mil-spec horseshoe reticle properly located in the first focal plane.  With their massive locking metallic milrad turrets, GPObright™ high-transmission lens-coating technology coupled with double HD glass objective lenses, fast focus rubberized ocular, and an extra-wide machined aluminum magnification adjustment ring, these scopes have it all.  The 34mm tube brings extreme range of adjustment capabilities, well over one hundred inches, and includes an extremely wide-angle field of view sure to please any optical enthusiast.  With double illumination technology, the horseshoe center point is fiber-optically driven and has the newest iControl™ auto-off feature that protects against unnecessary battery drainage so users always have illumination when they need it most.  The inverted horseshoe uses reliable glass illumination technology.

 “When you see this product and compare it to competitor scopes technically, optically, and by price, you’ll see why it will quickly become a leader in its price/class space,” says Jensen.
