    Read about these on All Outdoor, or Sportsman's Guide...maybe TFB... anyway.

    I looked at the website and then gave them a call. Guy claims all

    American glass.
    Metal is made by Seiko in Japan but

    NO CHINESE PARTS!

    Seem to be reasonably priced with a lifetime guarantee. Check it out:

    https://shepherdscopes.com/product/sr11-micro-red-dot/

    https://shepherdscopes.com/product/d...micro-red-dot/

    That last one looks pretty cool.

    I really like the Bushnell TRS25. 3 MOA dot is very bright & it's a fairly compact optic.

    +1 on TRS-25!
    I paid $100 for mine that came with 1" riser which provides a full co-witness to MBUIS on my 6920.

    55 items - all EOTech and Trijicon.
    Everything else - bah!

    My question is: how many manufacturers DO NOT use Chinese components?
    Proudly made and "proudly" assembled is not the same.

    The Shepherd scopes USE NO CHINESE PARTS OR LABOR.

    American glass... true they use Japanese aluminum housings but NO CHINESE SHIIIIIITE.
