I think  Super Slam, Grand Slam, T series and discontinued Classic Extreme series...possibly even K series (V series too?) but I doubt it, they are probably just Japanese lenses.... but put together in another place (China?).

Nitrex scopes are the same as Super Slam and Grand Slam with different clothes....Weaver 40/44 and Intensity Optics seem to be the same as Simmons.

A fella at Weaver (ATK) told me the other day all weavers except the 40/44 are made in Japan. I believe they are trying to clear out the 40/44 and Intensity lines just my take on thr conversation.

Yes that was what I came away from the conversation with. I think the 40/44 was a left over from Mead. sure hope they can keep made in Japan and update the K6 and K4.

Correct me if I'm wrong but the 40/44 was to be a low cost entry level product line produced in the Philippines. Has that changed? Lots of good scopes come out of the Philippines.
