I saw no end to well intention buyers who looked over scopes on display and decided to save $20 without any regard to where their money goes, or it's lack of  warranty.  It's just human nature to say "mine cost less".

I'm very happy with my Steiner German-made glass for around $900. I couldn't afford the Leupold price tag. I spent $2600 on the total build as it was. That's about the cost of a Leupold with a Hunter Ed discount. I looked at cheaper, Chinese glass and opted out.

Great post Goshawk,
I look forward to getting you and Clint out here with those Leupolds to bust up some prairie dogs.
Hope all is well for you and your family.

i have never been happy with any of the Leupold optics.Ive had leakage,cross hair issues,dont hold under shock.newer worse than the older ones.Quality control goes out the window now days.none are made in the U.S.A So all you can do is get what you trust and hope for the best........... :twocents:

Leupold is a  113 year old company in Oregon USA! They employee nearly 700 people. They are a ITAR compliant company.
Their glass does come from vendors in Japan & Asia, But they are 100% assembled in the USA including all machining of everything except for Binos and Rangefinders.
They have been operating the whole time through Covid-19 because of there military contracts.( not something Vortex can say)
They have a test device called the Punisher, Every scope model has to make it 5000 times. The equivalent of a 375 Ack, Imp. recoil
Most scope like Nikon, Bushnell, Vortex and other imports last about 60 times, FACT!! To say they don't hold impact and the quality has gone down hill is total crap. They started the lifetime warranty, and the best warranty is the one you never have to use :tup:

your opinion and your entitled to itr.I disagree with you military contract idea that that makes it superior because it does not.NO MORE THAN CHEVY BEING SUPERIOR TO DODGE WHEN THEY USE CHEVY AND VISA VERSE.Best deal and ability to get therm out on time is number 1.Could you show proof of this 5000 shock test?And please don't waste your time showing something from Leupold to show the 5000 shock test.They have gone down hill just like everything else you buy these days no matter how you slice it they don't make money on products that last forever.Finally yes Vortex is a new kid on the block but boy have they come up fast.One of the top most popular purchased scope or bino's on the market.Nightforce has only been making scopes since 92.

Vortex is made mostly in China. Leupold is made in the USA (Oregon.) I have several Leupold scopes and have been using Leupold for over 30 years, and never had an issue. Not saying they're the best, but I do believe they're the best for the money.

I run with both, Leupold on the rifles and Vortex bino's and spotting scope, all HD models on the Vortex things.  Here is a little on the Vortex from Opticsthought.com

The company itself has not been involved in the riflescope business all that long; however, the people behind it have been in the optics business since the mid-1980s.  The company itself is based in Wisconsin, but the riflescopes they market are manufactured overseas: Japan, Phillipines or China, depending on the product line.  At the moment there are four distinct riflescope product lines marketed by Vortex:
•least expensive are Chinese-made Crossfire scopes
•next (significant) step up are Phillipine-made Diamondback riflescopes
•Viper scopes are another step-up in quality (also Phillipine-made)
•at the top of the line-up are the (absolutely world-class) Razor HD riflescopes that are manufactured in Japan.
