Do you mean the tubes? As they are one piece tubes, I don't understand the "bells" being outsourced.
So are the erector assemblies made in the USA or imported as whole units?
Finally, what does it take to be legal to say "Made in the USA". Assembly, collimation, sealing and purging would seem to qualify, especially if only the glass is outsourced.
If American scope companies are truly being screwed by Draconian labeling laws that mislead the public I'll be the first to recant.
Thanks for your input.
