Kevin
If I'm remembering it right either Rifle or Handloader magazine ran an article stating that RCBS was having their presses made in China now.

Sorry everyone----the global economy is here to stay and there is virtually no way to avoid it.
Everyone of the major manufactures outsources so you had better get used to it because it is not ever going to change.

In order to survive a business must make a profit and in order to be competitive goods and services must be obtained in the most efficient manner possible to remain competitive.

China is here to stay and to believe you are going to avoid products built with materials or parts sourced from there you are either and this is the truth so do not kill the messenger----you are na´ve or worse. If you feel that you are only supporting a US made product Leopold for example you are sadly mistaken.

Not all of us are involved in the Global Supply Chan as I am so you can believe what you will but it is the truth.

I do not doubt that. The shotie quality from China products is an on going problem IMHO and experience with products from China

If I knew that a scope was made in China I would steer clear of it

I am well aware that many of the parts and glass from lots of the "made in USA" scope companies come from overseas. I believe that it is way more important to support these companies that assemble products here weither there are some parts made in china or not. Labor and overhead are the single most expensive part of any scope. I want to know that the majority of my purcahse went to jobs and people here. Even in the case where some foreign parts are used, the net profit leaving this contry is not nearly as significant. It sure beats sending all of the profit and cost of labor overseas.

No doubt about that, and I'm certainly aware of the global nature of business today. I work for a Finnish company, which is in turn under an umbrella company that's owned by several Scandanavian interests. We have a manufacturing operation in Germany, and I attend trade shows both here and in Europe. My statements aren't to "buy American" and are not based on some xenophobia or bigotry. As I said, I'll buy Japanese optics in a heartbeat. For me, it's about WHO we're buying from. The Chinese are NOT our friends, and it doesn't go anywhere near far enough to simply describe them as economic competitors. We've already bumped into them militarily, in greater or lesser degrees on several occasions already. Anyone remember their siezure of our ELINT aircraft back in early 2001? Or proxy warfare waged against us by North Korea? The USS Pueblo? How about any number of cyber probes or attacks that we've endured in the past few years. There's alse the question of the missle launch off the CA coast only a month or two back, that has all the earmarks of a Chinese "message" to this administration. All of that will be dwarfed by whatever goes down once China decides they're strong enough to take back their "breakaway province" of Taiwan at some point in the not-too-distant future. My point here is, I see no need to add to their technical ability or manufacturing capability, especially when it comes to dual use items that can/will be used against us.
