I was told they were made in same plant as Leupold, but a non issue for me as I have one in 2-7x32 it appears to be same scope as the Leupold with a slightly different finish.  Honestly with outsourcing along with suppliers of glass world wide various brands made in same factory it's a grab bag of what you get, not positive that brand name is relevant in todays world.

The glass on mine is very good, solid scope and for $120 bucks can't complain.

They assemble the Revolutions at the Leupold facility in OR.  I am not sure where the lenses and other internal parts come from (somewhere on the Pacific Rim I suspect), but I think the tubes are milled in OR.

The dealer that said that is probably the same guy that, when asked to show you a Winchester Model 70, says: THIS ONE ?? and has his hand on a Mossberg shotgun.

yes I should state that I'm in Australia and it was a person who imports scopes (Not Redfields)
at the moment here the best bang for your buck seems to be the RedField scopes I work part time at a gunshop and have suggested these scopes to a lot of people and have stated to them they are American made I wanted to make sure I was not giving them the wrong information

I have an older Redfield its about 20 years old. Ive taken lots of deer with it, one of which was at 630 yards with my 7mmmag. I love this old redfield scope. Mine was made here in the good ole U.S.A. I would like to think they still make them here but not sure.
