So, if you've been here a while, that makes you a seasoned troll I would presume.....

Side car, I 100% agree with your american manufacturing model... and suspect you may have been involved in the production of automobiles.... which I think was one of the leaders in developing the model much to my chagrin.

I also remember that not much of the Japanese manufactured product was very highly thought of in the late 40's and early 50's and yet today is some of the best in the world. Probably due to new manufacturing facilities and machines which were rebuilt/installed after the end of world war II.

Korean manufacturing products have like wise made big improvements in the last 10 years or so. Today's Hyundai's are much improved over the original imports. I suspect as China modernized (lots of new factories opening there now with new equipment in many manufacturing disciplines) that their products will have a marked improvement in quality over the next 30 or 40 years.. I suspect our sons... will be wowed by the NF or Kahles scopes made in China, that are not made there now.

Time and circumstances changes most everything. The latest equipment and education marches on... In the mean time... I suspect there are a lot of NF knock off's out there just like there are or were a lot of knock off watches, tennis shoes and jeans which as of yet don't have the quality of the copied brand! Buyer beware...

I guess so Flip, I should have added though the post is full of extreme inaccuracies. $50 scope? Come on...

All I was trying to say is it would be nice to join a forum and add some useful content or communication first, so other members could get to know you a little before you go off on a negative product post like this. I will say there is a decent percentage of member here that use NF scopes and most like them just fine. This is why I feel the 1st post, from this new member, and the radical content of it, was a trolling post to provoke an argument.

Maybe not, but that is how I view it. And it looks like at least one other member agrees. Just my personal opinion.

Jeff

The first post of that new "member" was completely out to lunch and inflammatory. That is the definition of a troll IMO. If that isn't I don't know what is.

I see scope parts going out the door every day and while I won't say where they're going, I'm a long way from China or Japan. The guy sitting next to me worked in Leupold's mill dept for years. I doubt he was cutting air that whole time. I also doubt those Mori lathes at Nightforce are making parts for Barbie dolls.
