I'm thinking of purchasing this Bushnell for my new Ruger Mini 14. My only other experience with Bushnell has been a good one. I had a Bushnell Scopechief 3-9X with pop up "Command Post" mounted on my Remington 700 in .300 Winchester Magnum way back in 1972. I can't count the amount of rounds that have been down the bore in that time, and that Bushnell has held up perfectly. I was just wondering if this Bushnell "Trophy" Model was made here, or imported? Thanks in advance,  Bill T.

Almost certainly imported but I don't know country of manufacture  I have a Trophy 1.75-4 on my Ruger 44 carbine and really like it.  No problems over the last 4 years and I don't coddle it.

I believe that comes out of China, although there are some Bushnells that are made in the Phillipines, and some from Japan I think as well. The main thing is the QC at the plants, as long as that is in good shape the point of origin makes little difference as to quality.

Has Bushnell ever sold a US made optics?  They started out selling Japanese binocs right after the war.
