     I read on one of your post that you (Chris) liked the Atec scopes that were produced in Japan more than the ones made in the phillipines. Is it because they had better quality control or did they use different and better glass? I also want to know if the Aetecs you have in stock are the Japan or phillipines models. If you have both in stock can I request a Japanes model when I order one?

They have not been made in Japan for years.

     Why did you like the Japan models more than the Phillipine models? Where they better optically or just better all around? I may run across one some time and would like to know if I would be better off buying a good used Aetec made in Japan or a new model made in the Phillipines. Just curious.

Better all around.  If you can find any Japan Simmons buy it.  The best are the Presidential series and the Japan 44-Mags.
