Leupold:
“All Leupold Golden Ring® Riflescopes are designed, machined, assembled, and tested in Leupold’s state of the art manufacturing facility in Beaverton, Oregon, USA.”
“Leupold uses foreign sourced components for some parts of Golden Ring products, primarily lenses. This is because at this time, there is no American manufacturer that can supply the quantity of high quality lenses that Leupold needs for its annual Golden Ring Optics production. Leupold’s lens systems are designed at Leupold, by American optical engineers, in its state-of -the-art optics lab and then procured from outside vendors who must meet stringent quality standards.”

The top three American made scopes are leupold, us optics, primear reticles. The last one started out doing different reticles and boosting leupold scopes for a long time leupold would still uphold the warranty on a scope modified by premier. They stopped doing that and premier started making their own scopes. These are amazing scopes that trump leupold in every category. Of course they cost more as well with the cheapest one being in the $2000 to $2500 price range....

Talking to several vendors at SHOT most optical manufactures buy their glass from different sources in batches. Who ever best meets or exceeds the quality requirements for that batch is who they buy. I got that from leupold ziess and Swarovski as well.

There is also a group of 4 optical engineers in Japan who are hand jailing some amazing scopes that are taking the benchrest world by storm demon optics make march scopes. You can check them out at www.kelbly.com

Leupold.

The best of the medium price, medium quality scopes. American made. (for the most part)

But avoid their "economy" line. Those are no better than a Tasco or or Bushnell.

Not much outthere about the Kaspa's last time I checked a couple of months ago. Recall a post on another site of gent who called Weaver, asking about the Kaspas. Unlike other models of Weavers with best being made in Japan by Light Optical Works (LOW) and other lower cost Weavers in Philippines, such as their 40/44 models, the Kaspa scopes are made in China and lowest priced of Weaver scopes.

What about Trijicon? I would assume since they have some mil issue, they would have American made scopes?
