GECO Black 1-8×24i: riflescope for sports shooters and law enforcement

At IWA 2017 GECO introduced the Black riflescope series, which has been designed specifically for tactical sports shooters and law enforcement. We had the opportunity to try out the 1-8×24i Tac riflescope at the range.

The GECO Black riflescope has everything a discerning marksman would expect. It combines excellent optics with a robust housing and a military design. During the test, the integrated horseshoe reticle allowed for a combination of intuitive quick shots at short distances and precise shots at greater distances. The illuminated reticle is located in the 1st focal plane and switches off automatically if not used for a while. Above all, this conserves battery life.

The GECO Black 1-8×24i Tac with 8× zoom performed excellently on our Schmeisser Dynamic Semi-Auto. The riflescope could be used as a red dot sight without magnification with both eyes open. This makes it absolutely ideal for dynamic rifle shooting (IPSC Rifle). 

Adjustments can be made easily using the turrets — even when wearing gloves. The magnification of up to 8× is infinitely adjustable and the image is outstanding.
