i dont know why folks dont read a little before acting like a expert.

the pst is not made in china, the crossfire is. the 100 dollar scope is made in china, the 700 dollar scope is not

the 700 dollar scope would probably be

    thats where they are assembled,not manufactured. this was clarified earlier on in the thread. any sticker other than china is where the optic was assembled. all the parts including the glass is china.i'm no longer on the staff and the vortex viper was one of the scopes that my friend wanted in the comparision.all of your questions were answered earlier on.

    i dont have any questions. i say in the vortex vs zenray thread where your "clarified" earlier in the thread. forgive me if i dont see some random guy on the internet saying "x is true" as clarification.

    bottom line is its very very rare that you ever see a bad word about the vortex scope, company, customer service. dig around and i bet this is one of the only bad reviews you find and this is the only man anywhere on the net ive seen that has stated as fact that they are made in china
