Re: Zeiss Conquest scopes made in Asia
Ah yes, the old fallacy. It says 'Assembled in USA', not MADE IN USA. Big difference my friend. BIG DIFFERENCE
Assembled in USA translated means assembled from parts sourced from anywhere which also means Asia or any Pacific Rim Country or here, but probably from the least expensive source and thats not HERE. To look a bit further into it, per chance, the entire scope might have originated in some oriental sweat shop, shipped in parts and assembled in any location listed in the next paragraph....
Additionally, 'Assembled in USA' can mean anywhere in the USA including holdings such as Puerto Rico, Guam, Virgin Islands, US Samoa or the Philippines. Vortex is assembled in the Philippines BTW.
It sure don't say 'Made in Prescott, Arizona". To cite a Made in USA example (Ruger) or Made in Yonkers, New York (Kimber).....
People assume that if it states assembled in USA, it's a domestic product and thats a fairy tale.
MADE IN AND ASSEMBLED IN ARE TWO ENTIRELY DIFFERENT ANIMALS
Due dillegence is always better in most cases.
