German Precision Optics (GPO) USA, one of the newest optics companies on the market, announced the launch of its GPOTAC 8Xi riflescope, designed to offer benefits to tactical shooters.

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

The 8Xi, a variable-power 1-8x24 mm scope, is German-designed and engineered and features a 34 mm main tube made from aircraft-grade aluminum. The scope also features the company's trademarked iControl fiber-optic illuminated reticle, which includes an auto-shutoff feature. The optic also features a horseshoe reticle designed to military specifications. The reticle is located in the first focal plane.

Other features include large MIL turrets, along with a fast-focus ocular lens with a rubberized coating for added grip. The scope also features a wide magnification ring. The iControl reticle illumination also features a built-in alert that tells users when battery life has reached 15 percent.

Click values for the 8Xi scope measure 1 MIL at 100 meters, which translates to 0.36 inch at 100 yards. The total elevation and windage range is 291 centimeters (114.5 inches) at 100 meters. The scope weighs in at 19 ounces and measures 10.7 inches in overall length.

The suggested retail price on the GPOTAC 8Xi 1-8x24 mm tactical scope is $1,799.99.
