Trijicon traditional rifle scopes are either made in Japan or the USA.

"Our AccuPoint® riflescopes are assembled in the USA but have significant components purchased in Japan. Our Huron®, Ascent®, Tenmile®, and Credo® riflescopes are manufactured in Japan according to our design and testing requirements."

Tract scopes are made in Japan or the Philippines. They list COO in their specs online. All the companies (with nothing to hide) should do that as well. I see it more often than formerly. You must remember though that that can change very quickly in this world, so you have to keep your eyes peeled.

See the list of zero China products? That's notable. Hmmm. What do those companies have?

Good stuff 👍

Huskemaw is made in Japan, I believe.


My LR scope is a Huskemaw Blue Diamond 5-20x50. It's awesome.

The USA, is our last chance at freedom. God Bless America ~

I'm leaning toward a 3-9x40/42 or 2/3-12. Price range $900 or less. 1 inch tube if possible.

Actually all Vortex razors are Japan also

Japanese made.

VERY good illumination at both the bright and dim ends.

Outstanding reticle.

Fairly lightweight.

Very good "glass."

Good eye relief.

One inch tube.

Good reputation for tracking and durability.

Will get you to 30 minutes after sunset in most conditions.

Well under your budget.

I doubt anyone except the vendor knows where these optics are actually made; but it's a safe bet that many are not made where the customer is led to believe.

Interesting. I'd have never bought a Nikko Stirling scope. It was free on a free rifle the wife won over the summer. I get to Texas and she says look what I won. LOL.

Figured junk scope. Nope, best I can tell made in Japan. Gets me to legal shooting hours most of the time.

Its a bit picky about eye relief at times. I can't' just stick my iPhone up and snap pics easy.

It does give a bit of glare and picky on that eye relief as noted. But it shoots little groups. Its awful clear during the day. Plenty clear at night.

Its allowed 5 or 6 bullets into deer so far this season.

Its not Chinese anywhere I can tell.

But once again... I would like to remind you China builds to price point. companies give them a price, they meet it.

Have a good friend highly involved in Motorola plant there years ago. Got to dealing with them a lot. Wanted to see how much he could save and if they could built target bolt actions to build rifles off of that would be quality. Yep. Yet once they ran the numbers vs the specs the cost imported to USA was not nearly much savings. IE China could and would produce, but to meet the given specs it was not cheap.

Remember its not only china screwing us... its companies that use them...

Off my soap box.

I bought one to see how I liked it. I immediately bought another. Now I wish all of my rifles wore Trijicon.

I wasn't sure how I was going to like the reticle. It's fantastic. Throw the rifle up on the shoulder and everything centers up very naturally. On the lowest setting, I get NO washout in dark conditions.

Like most thing you are wrong yet again.

All Leupold scopes are made in the USA.
Ahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha. Your kidding us? Right?

Swarovski doesn't make kaka. They might use proprietary lense coatings but like everyone else they source lenses and prisms.

I don't care what anyone claims I found long ago all this stuff is spec'd out from around the world, and typically it's locations in Asia. Some may have optics actually made in Japan or Phillipines but it's not the complete story. Yeah the scope or whatever might be made in Japan, Korea, Phillipines, but more than likely there's Chinese parts or components on board that ate in there. Not always but it's really common.

As for Leupold. They don't manufacture lenses prisms. All their product is from sourced materials and they might make scope times in America and assemble some here. The vast amount of components in their optics are east asian in origin.

Now years ago when US Optics was in California they actually made Scopes and sourced Schott Glass lenses. Today thats not the case and those days are pretty much gone.

People get really caught up in this but these optics companies are marketing companies. They sell an image or brand and advertise and go to trade shows. Behind the scenes they're slinging optics from ol' Xi in China. But make no mistake you can spec out higher end lenses and components or you can go full junk.

I would not buy anything made in China. If I buy something accidently or without knowing that is made in China, I throw it away or sell cheap. It does not belong to me long!
