Several months ago I  seriously considered buying one of the Docter scopes available through DocterUSA. Am I ever glad I didn't make that mistake! I just noticed this on their website:

"DocterUsa will no longer be bringing in the rifle scopes or handling any of the warranty/ Repair for the rifle scopes."

In other words, if you bought a scope from them, you're on your own! Another good reason to buy from  SWFA.

Thanks for the update!!
Are they still going to make the Red Dot sights, or do you know?? I see them occasionally on AR's on ARFCOM.
 
I'm kinda surprised they kept the doors open as long as they did, to be truthful.
I used to walk by a lonely 'ol Docter scope, (3-9x?? maybe) , at a gunship in Charlotte, NC I used to hang out at from time to time.
That poor son of a pup sat there for a couple of years it seems like.
 
Everybody in Mecklenburg Co. fondled it and looked through that scope, me included, but there were never any buyers for the old girl.
Hell, I bet it's still there in the scope case as I type.    
 
I've read where some have called the Docter scopes "The Poor Man's Schimdt and Bender"......Kind of a stretch, huh? Roll%20Eyes

Happens with more and more scope brands......if they don't turn a profit they don't last long.

Yes, Docter is still in business. I think the new company name is Analytik Jena. They have changed their importers here in the U.S. Merkel U.S.A. ( Trussville, Al ) is now the official importer. I wish I could have gotten in on that !
