when did the nikon monarch line stop being made in Japan?  I just purchased two 3-9x40 nikon monarch ucc from SWFA, the scopes and the boxes are clearly marked made in the Philippines.  The scope appeares good but I was very disappointed that they were not made in Japan which is where I was told that they were made.

Hey rlfarmer, it is my understanding that the glass is made in Japan and the scopes are assembled in the Philippines, this is something I find rather disconcerting, but it also reflects on the relatively low cost.  However, as long as it holds its POI, hangs tough, and has clear glass, then it's all right, you know?  In the end, you have a scope, and it if it works, it works, regardless of where it was assembled.

Well I ordered one yesterday (3x9x40 Matte Gloss are gone) even though I received my 3200 friday. I thought hard about the full field 2 with the bino or spotting scope thats a good deal too.
