Are the Super Sniper Scopes made in Japan?

I just saw a close up picture of one and it said made in Japan on it. I almost bought one yesterday and probably still will. Just that the Japan thing kind of caught me by suprise.

I believe they are made for SWFA by Bushnell.  But I can attest for the price "Nothin' else comes close"   I love mine.

Bushnell does not make scopes the Super Snipers are probably made by the same people who make Bushell Elite scopes, Light Optical Works.  I believe there are only 2 big optic manufacturers in Japan making rifle scopes Light Optical Works and Asia Optical.

Where were you expecting them to be made?  Made in Japan is a good thing sure as hell beats made in China.

Be advised, if it isn't now coming from SWFA and never did come from SWFA, it is a fake.


I highly recommend the 10X supersniper, but only the one made for/bought from SWFA.

I have only seen them sold by SWFA because they are the owners of the Super Sniper brand.  I have not seen them elsewhere, other big online retailers and other forum owners (sniperhide and sniper central) always dog the super snipers I assume because they are jealous they don't have a good quality budget tactical scope with a cult following.  It's a pretty strong card to hold as far as SWFA is concerned and a pretty smart move on their part buying the rights.

A few comments:

Bushnell does not make scopes.   Bushnell sells scopes that are manufactured by various OEMs.  In the case of Super Sniper, Bushnell provides warranty service.  Everything else is done by SWFA.

Super Sniper, to the best o fmy knowledge, is made by Kenko in Japan (LOW and Asia Optical are not the only optics makers in Japan, to the best of my knowledge).

The original poster said he almost bought one and saw pictures of one, it sounded like perhaps he was not dealing with SWFA on the purchase.  My intention was to warn him that there are fake SuperSnipers online. They suck, and SWFA doesn't warranty them, obviously.

I don't hang out on Sniper Center but I do post on Sniper's Hide occasionally, and those that know optics generally like the SS for its price and durability.  There's always a jackass with an ax to grind, but overall the sentiment is that it is one of (if not "the") best deals going in tactical scopes.

I meant big optic makers making scopes and I did not realize Kenko was making scopes in Japan.  I thought they were doing that mainly in the Philippines these days.  Always hard to keep things sorted out these days though.

The one I saw was on Ebay being sold on Ebay by SWFA. They have several scopes listed on Ebay. But the price is about the same as if you went to SWFA's home page and bought it there. My birthday is March 8 and I'm getting one come hell or high water.Big Grin
