If your not buying American then I have no respect for you.

Save your money and buy something made here.

You can get a Leupold VX II 6-18 x40 for $500. They also make custom turrets for it. The glass is Japanese but the rest is made in Beaverton, OR.

Look at our economy! Want to make it better?

Put someone to work and buy "MADE IN THE USA"

Self-loathing can lead to depression and suicide - I suggest you look around your house and see just how many things you have that are made in China before you castigate the rest of us who want the most bang for our buck.

Re: Millet scope any good?

I have an LRS 6x25x56 on my .308. My first one had to go back right after mounting it I noticed the elevation knob had a wobble to it and when cranking it up it would rub the sleeve that has the markings on it.

I got a replacement from where it was ordered.Originally had the moa version but i got the .1 mil version on the replacement. I will say the LRS is big and heavy and the rings that came with it are way too tall on top my 20moa EGW base. Millets website doesn't list any 35mm rings that I have seen yet,but I have not e-mailed or called to find out if they offer anything else.

To me mine is pretty clear and everything seems to works well,knobs are not mushy and seems to return to zero just fine so far.

Going to go to a 1k range in about a week and will be getting a good chance to put alot of rounds through it and will see how it does.

Re: Millet scope any good?

I think the price for all the features is well worth it. Optics are clear and tracks nicely. I have the Buck Gold 4x16x56. Very happy with this scope. For the person posting to buy only American, have you looked at a new leupold lately? They can't even legally stamp made in the USA on most of thier products anymore because so many of the parts are outsourced from China. Assembled in the USA is more like it. Do some research before you slam the rest of us for buying Chinese products. Atleast Millet still makes mounts and iron sights in the USA. Have a read on this forum.
