Does anyone have any hands on experience with this scope.From what I'm reading it looks like it might be something special.

Does anyone own a GPO scope that they could talk about?

I tested the 1-8x24 a while back.

Anything specific you are curious about?

 'm also intrigued in GPO's lines of LPVO scopes and would be interested in your general impressions regarding glass, build quality, and how user friendly their "eyebox" is.  I'm more interested in their two 1-6 lines for use on a thick brush hunting rifle (and to play with target shooting) rather than the 1-8 models, and like the looks of the reticle on their FFP model  for its versatility.  I was waiting on Leica's ER5 1-5x24 for this application, but since it never made it to market Meopta's R2 1-6x24 and Nightforce's NX8 are probably the current leading candidates for this rifle.  On paper, the GPOTac 1-6 seems like it might be a good compromise between the Meopta and Nightforce -- a reticle that I like that is similar to the Nightforce and glass quality/user friendly eyebox that is similar to the Meopta.  Looking for some independent review feedback that lets me know if I'm heading in the right direction.

The 1-8x24 GPOTAC I tested was built very well.  The scope is built in Japan by LOW, except they add the illumination in Germany.

I would have preferred a bolder reticle on 1x, but as a general purpose design, it was quite good.  The 1-6x is supposed to have a more prominent reticle, but I have not seen it yet.
