First Look: German Precision Optics Spectra 7.5x50i Riflescope

posted on December 16, 2021

With the introduction of its new Spectra 7.5x50i scope, German Precision Optic USA is entering the fixed-power scope market. This new riflescope features a slim and sleek configuration that will offer simplicity to shooters who do not need a variable-power scope yet still deliver at the level that customers have come to expect from German Precision Optics. 

The scope is engineered using a 50 mm double HD objective lens system for enhanced resolution that is coupled with GPObright high transmission lens coatings. A 30 mm main tube insures optical performance while still supporting incremental elevation adjustment capabilities. The tube is crafted from a solid, one-piece dust-proof, waterproof, nitrogen-filled body for strength and durability. The illuminated G4i reticle is well-suited for general use and is powered with the GPO iCONTROL illumination system that assists the shooter in placing the perfect shot in even the lowest light conditions.

“The advantage a fixed power scope brings shooters is a larger than normal field of view, and when you match that with a 50 mm objective and 7.5X magnification, you have the perfect all around scope that is lighter and has fewer mechanical parts,” says Mike Jensen, German Precision Optic USA’s owner and CEO.

The 7.5x50i fixed power scope comes with a cleaning cloth, see-through bikini ocular and objective lens scope covers, and an extra CR2032 battery and a full lifetime Warranty.
