Not too long back, I ran across an in deapth article about scope manufacturers. It dealt with who still makes scopes in the good ol US of A and the three (I think) manufacturers in Japan. If someone can direct me to that article it would be appreciated.
Didn't know that. I saw an American Rifleman episode a few weeks back and they had all the aluminum blanks there cutting and manufacturing the scopes. I wasn't sure about the glass but it looked like they were still making the tubes, objective bells, and eyepieces from raw material.
