Vortex Viper Tacticals: Are the made in Japan

Hi Guys

I wonder can anybody tell me if the Vortex Viper Tactical scopes are made in Japan or China...or else where??

The scopes do seem to tick a lot of boxes...Metric adjustments, Miliradian Recticule, Iluminated Recticule, Side Parallex.

Thinking of adding one to my wish list. If they are made in Japan as opposed to China, another box would be ticked.

Kindest regards

As far as I know none of the vortex products are chinese. Philippines is their main assembly point. I believe the lens are from Japan as well as some of the other components.

Neither, They are assembled in the Philippines with parts from Japan.

Thank you rdsii64 for your reply.

I think the scopes could be very good if manufactured in the Phillipines with major components made in Japan. The scopes are getting great reviews and seem to be the most exciting thing at the "affordable / entry" level of tactical style scopes.

Kindest regards
