Re: Nightforce Scopes Made in.....

I have 3 ea. 3.5X15 NXS scopes and they say "Made In Japan" on the bottom of the scope. I have 1 ea 5.5X22 NSX and it also says "Made In Japan"

I have 1 ea. 2.5X10 NXS and it says "Made In U.S.A."

Re: Nightforce Scopes Made in.....

From what i was told from a guy at nightforce, he said that international trading laws makes them put the sticker on the largest part of the product on where it was made. Since the tubes and glass are made in japan (the tube being the largest part of the actual scope) and assembled in Idaho they are forced to put on the scope "made in Japan"

Re: Nightforce Scopes Made in.....

Folks, I have been using Night Force NXS scopes professionally since 1999. Written several articles on them and now compete in F TR with them.

This is what I have learned about where they are made

All MIl Spec Scopes are USA made
1-4
2-10
3.5-15x50 FFP

The others have some of the parts made in Japan and are assembled here.

Now I have a bunch of these scopes and can tell you, you just cant do better for a scope. Price, quality and clarity are at top of food chain.

Re: Nightforce Scopes Made in.....

Just like the Loopy scope tubes are made in Oregon and the rest all comes from Japan... Don't go into a swoon now Loopy Lovers... "Made right, Made right here" is just a slogan! They are great scopes, just like the NightForce, but like everything else, parts come from around the world... It's just a fact!

Re: Nightforce Scopes Made in.....

The ones that say Japan their parts are made in Japan and assembled here in the USA. The 1-4x, 2.5-10x, and the 3.5-15x50mm FFP scopes are made in the USA and they use Japan Glass.
