"The secret to their low price is "Made in China". But that doesn't make them bad."
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"
