I just got one from SWFA and there still marked made in Phillipenes on the bottom of the saddle, unlike Simmons new Master series thats made in China.
 
 I think there a better scope than Bushnells Chinese made Banners. I've had a WTC on a Howa 22-250 for 4 or 5 years now without issues. If your pinched for cash the and want high magnification the WTC is hard to beat. I don't think I'd put one on anything bigger than a 22-250 though.
 
 If I buy a cheap scope I want an American type focus with a locking ring, not the fast focus Euro style. I've noticed alot of cheap fast focus scopes have some play in the eyepiece if it's adjusted out wich results in in retical movement when it's bumped.

This doesn't have anything to do with Simmons, but if someone is pressed for cash and needs a decent scope, I always recommend getting an old, second hand, GOOD scope that has been taken care of....it would be a much better scope than a brand new cheapie import from China.
