The new Monarchs are made in the Philipines.

 

The new Monarch X and Gold are made in Japan.

You can tell they are not from the same factory but you can not say that one is built better than the other.  Only time will tell.

all Nikon is made in 100% Nikon factories by 100% Nikon employees.

 

Never contracted out like others....

 

same goes for their glass.  all made from raw materials, under lock and key, in only Nikon mfr facilities by Nikon employees.

 

Nikon has factories that are identical to spec throughout the world.  Phillipines and Japan are just two of many where Nikon riflescopes are manufactured.

I don't know why, but I always thought that Nikon had built a factory in Thailand for the Monarchs.  Is that something that I just imagined?

If memory serves me right, some Monarch riflescopes used to be built in Thailand, but I do not know if that holds true for the new Monarchs.

As for

Quoting waylan:
"same goes for their glass.  all made from raw materials, under lock and key, in only Nikon mfr facilities by Nikon employees"

Somehow, I was under an impression that a fair bit of the glass for Nikon scopes (especially less expensive ones) comes from Hoya.

Perhaps, I am wrong.
