Are Nightforce Scopes made in Idaho?
yes they are
The three NXS's I own say they are made in Japan.
All mine say 'Made in Japan'.
Their U.S. office and return/repair center is Orofino ID... but they're manufactured in Japan, AFAIK.
The FFP F1's are made in Idaho.
I liked them enough to order two, I was just curious.
I called nightforce after seeing japan on the bottom of my scope. from what I understood, the scopes are made in orofino idaho, but the glass and the tubes come from japan. this is the way I understood it, if not correct someone please chime in.
lamiglas has it right!
I have 3 ea. 3.5X15 NXS scopes and they say "Made In Japan" on the bottom of the scope. I have 1 ea 5.5X22 NSX and it also says "Made In Japan"
I have 1 ea. 2.5X10 NXS and it says "Made In U.S.A."
From what i was told from a guy at nightforce, he said that international trading laws makes them put the sticker on the largest part of the product on where it was made. Since the tubes and glass are made in japan (the tube being the largest part of the actual scope) and assembled in Idaho they are forced to put on the scope "made in Japan"
Folks, I have been using Night Force NXS scopes professionally since 1999. Written several articles on them and now compete in F TR with them.
This is what I have learned about where they are made
All MIl Spec Scopes are USA made
The others have some of the parts made in Japan and are assembled here.
Now I have a bunch of these scopes and can tell you, you just cant do better for a scope. Price, quality and clarity are at top of food chain.
Just like the Loopy scope tubes are made in Oregon and the rest all comes from Japan... Don't go into a swoon now Loopy Lovers... "Made right, Made right here" is just a slogan! They are great scopes, just like the NightForce, but like everything else, parts come from around the world... It's just a fact!
my 2.5-10x32 says made in usa on box and on the tube
The ones that say Japan their parts are made in Japan and assembled here in the USA. The 1-4x, 2.5-10x, and the 3.5-15x50mm FFP scopes are made in the USA and they use Japan Glass.
