Found out who makes Cabelas scopes

Bought a 3x12x40 MM scope from Cabelas today. They call it their "Caliber specific scope. Paid $99.99 for it. Behind the counter guy said there brand name scopes are made by Burris !

Re: Found out who makes Cabelas scopes

I don't know exactly who would make the scope you purchased, but I would say that Burris probably does not make them. At $100 Burris does not even make their own scopes. It maybe the same factory that make Burris overseas that make the Cabelas scopes.

I did a little research and Classic HX Optics Co., Ltd. in China makes some scopes for Cabelas.

There was a black sticker on bottom of scope body. Of course I had to peel it off. " Made in China"

The thing I have learned the HARD WAY over the years is that when it comes to optics, you pretty much get what you pay for!!!!

That's for sure. I just wanted some thing good enough for 22 magnum range. This scope was on sale normally sold for $149.00. I'm going to go shoot it now.
