I was at my friends last night and we logged on to SWFA.  He spent his military time in Germany and married a fraulein.  He is fluent in the language and visits Germany yearly.

He told me that the East Germans and West Germans had their separate Zeiss companies and the east Zeiss is now Docter.  I thought that might be of interest to someone.

Docter USA no longer deals with scopes due to all the problems with sending the scopes back to Germany for service.The scopes are indeed made in Germany,however the scopes sold here in the U.S.A. online by the former distributor were the older models which had issues with quality control which I happened to buy.A few months ago all the scopes were up for sale, unknown if anyone bought the remaining stock.The newer scopes are indeed better in quality and are available to buy in the U.S. by another online optics company.For the money the1inch scopes I think you could do better with the newer Sightron BigSky line or Bushnell Elite 4200.Docter has good components, the 30 mm scope line is up there in my opinion with Zeiss,Swaro,S&B & cheaper.Docter has a big following in Europe just never marketed here properly by the former disributor.Fro
