Sorry POOPstick, but I refuse to use "Made in China" scope rings.

I’d bet good $ that there isn’t a modern set of scope rings in existence that didn’t involve China at some level of its manufacturing process.

The raw materials sourced, the products made to create the finish, the metallurgy process, whatever….I simply won’t believe any readily available product in today’s world isn’t partially made in China. Just because a scope doesn’t have a “Made in China” sticker doesn’t mean that it isn’t.


I use Nightforce, Seekins & FarrelI scopes rings. They are machined in the USA. You will have to ask the manufacturers where they buy their alloys.

I didn't type anything about a scope.

Understood, but I think my point was solid.

I did mean to type “a scope ring” instead of just “a scope” when referring to the sticker. That is what I get for typing on my phone when at lunch….

I am not following you here. SWFA already has an optics line. Are you referring to a new model of optic or series of models of optics or something?

Or, is their new line actually called “optics”. That’s be original….

It wasn't hard to tell, you meant scope ring. And, your point is valid.

Let's kick that around a little bit. SWFA currently has a wildly popular line of well respected scopes that they cannot keep in stock. Now they are going to move into a new line that they will be able to keep in stock. Okay, I'll accept that. BUT, the counter help in the store is somehow a vital piece of bringing this new scope line into production and/or to the market?

Paul you might be onto something! That is a well thought out and logical question. I knew most of the "counter help" and have to say I wasn't real impressed.

I wonder if SWFA will be at the Texas Hunters Extravaganza this weekend in Dallas (close to their HQ). Lease mates and I will be walking the show with a few nickels burning a hole in our pocket. I've never checked out their wares, mostly because the majority of their reticles seem to come with 48 hash marks. For fooks sake, I can't even see that good. Besides, I just need a duplex and maybe an illuminated dot if I'm hunting within 200 yards. If they are there, I'll have to give them a look.

IDGAF what the paperwork says - does it PERFORM and for me, they do.

That's not the truth. If you want a long eye relief scope and you get a short eye relief scope you will care. The one I bought would perform right into your brow on a heavy kicker.

Being off by 15% on weight isn't a big deal to me, although SWFA has changed the weight of the scope in their specs twice since I bought it. Once to the correct weight and then back to the incorrect weight.

Paul,

In the current state of affairs, counter help (labor) is a scarce commodity. For every business! They know their operation better than we do. Could it be that shutting down the door is the best course they can take?
We've been blessed to have SWFA Scopes for a while now, at such low prices...what makes you think they're fixing to fug up the business? Or, the consumers, for that matter?

Not being able to keep in stock is a testament to the popularity/quality/price point of the products. And you're complaining about counter help when they're trying to "fix" the shortcomings?
Gimme a break!

Actually it was I who was knocking the counter help, Paul was just asking how they hourly front people could effect the release of a new line of scopes.

Well I know for a fact the counter help was not designing a new scope line.

They are switching to a manufacturer in Nigeria.
Apparently there was a wealthy tribesman who died and left them a multi million Naira grass hut based company. So they cut ties with the little yellow creeps.

Read about the ATF targeting a local pawn shop a week or two ago. Appears to be a pattern that's possible when government has too many laws and inadequate oversight (or a rogue administration weaponizing government agencies against their political opponents).

However, sloppy paperwork by the FFL holder is asking for trouble regardless of whether ATF was more lenient in the past.

Lol, interesting video!

Makes me feel good about the 3-15 I just mounted and sighted in today on a rifle! It did replace a brand that shall not be named.
