A new brand of bins and riflescopes has emerged under the name German Precision Optics. The brand has been founded by ex-Zeiss Sports Optics boss, Richard Schmidt and an independent USA company GPO, USA owned and operated by ex-Zeiss Sports Optics USA boss, Michael Jensen, has taken on distribution in the United States and Canada.

The bins look great and the specifications are competitive as are the prices. No doubt at some point review units will become available and we will find out how they compare with the competition.

Lee:

Welcome aboard. Although you were dinged right off the starting blocks—because all such sites are to generate income stream—I think you will find the group here much more amiable than some of the Romper Room groups, wherein you can read the same erroneous stuff ad nauseum and see it repeated 5 or 6 more times before the year is out, and in which some socially needy armchair speculators vie to see if they can be seen as today’s optical sages.

 

Skylar:

Lee made a booboo. And, knowing him, I know the comment was well-intentioned. If it meets with your approval, I would ask that you talk to the owners about how to handle such well-intentioned mistakes. I think most of us would consider This is your first and only warning mate,” to be a bit heavy handed. Repeat offenses is another matter. But with 3 posts under his belt, I hardly think that could have figured in.

 

Cheers

I may have jumped the gun. However, historically introductory posts like this on the OT have clouded several sections of the forum with undesired commentary, urls, and other potentially malicious content.

I have no doubt that he's probably knowledgeable and would make contributions to the forum. However we diligently work to keep this place clean from links to foreign and potentially malicious website to protect its members. I didn't follow the link, however it was flagged by a fellow member and upon seeing and the minimal post count thus far, lead me to the conclusion to warn him and remove the outgoing url.

I hope that you gentlemen may understand the position I am in. I meant no ill will towards Lee and would like to see more from him.

Thanks for your greetings.
The management team behind this company were instrumental in pulling Zeiss into the 21st century so it will be interesting to see how their bins perform.

The specifications are a mixed bunch although competitive but the real test will be getting hold of test units, and I'm working on it.

I didn't read the conditions closely enough or I would have realised I was in contravention.

When I was at school my teachers used to often write 'could do better' and so I will try to do better here too.

Crap, an apologetic explanation! I guess that means we don't get to beat you. Well, you are, after all from Texas.

Lee,

It's no problem not. My reply to you was an effort to convey that we request that all patrons follow the rules to Optics Talk. As noted above, there was a time where daily myself and other moderators were cleaning up links, fake user profiles, ect..because it added no beneficial content for the users of our community.

Again, Welcome to Optics Talk.

they had better perform at an alpha level for half the big boy alpha prices, for at least 5 years B4 they can be looked at as a top level option....otherwise just another mid priced no name wannabe....

Are you really from Texas? Crockett went by David and only tolerated "Davy." Besides, were it not for Walt Disney, he would have been a small footnote in history. Big Grin

Serious-Lee:

I think you will find things here much to your liking. First, you may go days without seeing a new post, because members deal with one thing at a time and let it go when an answer has been found, thus using the site as a tool and not a toy.

Also, it is refreshing in that the experienced can replace the pretentious “I believe,” “perhaps you may,” “but possibly,” “maybe,” “you might consider,” etc. with “is” and “are” without thin skinned speculators taking offense and whining to the site owner that you weren’t politically correct enough for THEIR taste and temperament.

Welcome to the forum Lee.

Do you know if these guys are going to be at SHOT next week? I am trying to work out my schedule for the site and if there is a new company with such an interesting pedigree, I would like to meet then.

Lol, yes. I aforementioned that  to reference Fess Parker's character portrayal of Mr. Crockett. I felt it was ironic, because he too had a low tolerance. An effort to paint the whole visual image.
