Well you better because everything is being made there just about anymore.
That FANCY computer your making that idiotic post on where do you think 99.9999% of the parts are made? That flashy new cell phone you have yup MADE IN CHINA.
Face it the Chinese are very good and making items and making them for a low cost.
I have a lower end Vortex 4-12x40mm Corssfire. Of the sub $200 scopes I have it OUT SHINES them all. Tracking is great, brightness and clarity are what you would expect out of a scope costing 2 to 3 times as much. Plus if you ever have a problem with a vortex scope they will repair or replace FREE of charge for the life of the scope. It doesn't matter if you are the first or 50th owner of the scope. When was the last time you got that from a $150 scope?
I sure would prefer to buy american first. I did once I bought a Leupold VX-II 6-18x40mm for my 700 VLS. That scope SUCKED to me it was nothing more than junk. Not as clear or bright as my Bushnell 4200 The eye relief move almost 5" from 6-18x. I ended up trading it for a 6.5-20x42mm Nikon Monarch and I am super happy with that trade. The way I hunt I keep the scope turned down to 6 or 6.5x then if I have time to turn it up I turn it up to the power I need to make the shot. I don't have time to be figuring out where to put my face when I am facing down a charging horde of zombie Ground hogs. I need to be on target now and be able to throw the rifle to my shoulder and make the shot.
