Leupold/Redfield scopes are assembled in Oregon,all of their lenses and some internal parts are imported from Japan and the Philippines. Leupold's top end scopes may have Schott lenses from Germany,but I'm not totally sure of that.
Redfield scopes are pretty decent lower tier scopes.The glass is pretty clear,and they hold a zero pretty good. I've had a 4-12 Redfield mounted on a 22 for many years.
