Ignorance is ...bliss?
They really are not made in America
Leupold used to be made in the USA, but the optics were garbage and falling farther behind the market every year.
People complained so Leupold went to Japan....Problem solved, customers happy, prices went down and quality went UP. For a few years you couldn't give away another scope with the exception of the odd Bushnell welfare scopes....Thanks to American business savvy and Japanese quality.
USO glass is made in Japan.
Nightforce glass is made in Japan.
I believe Redfield represents the current state of the art in American optical glass...Perhaps you should try one of those?
