Seems like I read on one of the forums that burris had moved their scope making operations to the Philippenes....is this correct?

We had some discussion on that back in August and Trinidad had some good info
The FFII's are made there, for sure. The high end scopes are made here.

I think that they are their own plants with internal QC. I have to wonder with the Nikon Monarchs I have that are made there, how many scope manufacturers there actually are in the Philippines.

Yeah I saw quite an informative post on that once, can't remember where I saw it, thought it was Ilya or JB's post over on campfire. Guess I'm mixed up or something......I did do an exhaustive search and with burris they have scope plants in both countries to take advantage of the cheaper labor rates. I just couldn't really find a list of which scopes are made in which plants. Apparently all scopes are boxed and shipped from their US location in Greeley CO. I could be getting info I read about meade confused with burris. They have just opened a plant in china according again to internet info. What a global economy its becoming.....
