Too bad you feel that way. You should learn your subject matter before you go off telling people "they are spewing crap". The intent of my very first message way back in the forum was to let buyers know though they claim to be... they are not US manufactured. Don't have a breakdown. Go back to the beginning of the thread instead of jumping in the middle of a conversation. This is not about you it is about helping persons be aware.

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
Jeff I agree with you. I am not "up" on the forum proto-call. I was just trying to tell the first posts that I have the same issue they do. I apologize if I stepped across a line. I was trying to help. I guess the best that came of this is we all agree the Japanese products are all pretty good and affordable. I have more Nikon's than any other scopes. I love em. Since you are a very well written please pass my apologies on. I am just a cranky old man when attacked. The thread goes back quite away.

Why don't you tell all of us just exactly which units are made in China?

Yes I have 3. They are very good and the only issue I ever had was for years I thought I was buying American. I am opposed to large item costs when buying from outsourced products. I love my Nikon's. My Super Snipers are very good. I have 4. I have Nikons on 26 range training AR's including one on the new 7.62x40WT. Very accurate and they will usually shoot the box. They take a beating in range time instruction. I have an old and a new Zeiss. The optics are incredibly clear. No difference old vs. new. I had no intention of starting trouble. I just wanted to share they were made as an outsourced product. Many of the old timers like me are still stinging from the rush of foreign product into this country. Anyone who buys a NF won’t be disappointed (except for the price). Just remember they are not made in USA. The students always ask where the scopes are made (a compliment to Nikon). The boys beat me up pretty good on the forum! I understand all positions on this and, of course, I have my own. This forum is a good one and I think all your opinions are respected. I think someone jumped into the middle and should have started in the beginning. It was not me who was asking about this. There are several post well before mine that are all about the same issue.

looking at leupys the other day none of them said made in America. didn't see the made in America tag on any of them. Go to snipershide and ask the NF rep over there about the Chinese parts on NF I would like to see the answer you get
