after a lot of consideration, I went with a US Optics TS6x with the simple crosshairs/red dot reticle. Price was well within my budget and I am putting it on an ADM Scout.
Well, good luck to me. Smile

Congrats, let us know how it works out for you.

I'm not 100% sure, but from what I've seen about the TS-line on Sniper Hide, they are Asian made (China / PI).

I can only say that the company states that they are made in north Carolina.
I started reading about USO after I Googled US Made rifle scopes. The Ts6x was listed.

I hope you are wrong this time. Smile

Absolutely. It was delivered today. I forgot to look on the unit and/or box to see where it was made. Back to you later.

Nothing on the box or manual says where it was manufactured. But, I hve never looked through glass this nice.

The simple crosshair with red dot. Nothing fancy and not busy at all. So far, it is very quick to put the dot on the target. Of course, that would be my puppies at 10 - 15 feet.

Well, I found out by looking at an introduction video that the TS6x and TS8x in all reticle configurations are made in a foreign country.
The marketing director did not say which country.
I own it and will live with it.

RHINOWSO, right again, dagnabbit!!

Sorry brother - use it, shoot it, and I'm sure it'll be fine.

I just like truth in advertising. I have a Romeo 5 made in China, Burris & Vortex made in the PI, and Nightforce made in Japan (NX8) & USA (NXS 2.5-10x24).

It's commonly accepted that even optics "Made in the USA" (NF, Leupold, Vortex) use a good number of foreign parts - typically from Japan for high end scopes.

To me when a company DOESN'T put country of manufacture on a product, its a sure sign it was likely made somewhere that doesn't fit their branding - ie US Optics made in China / PI / etc doesn't exactly make a nice tag line.

Anyway, let us know how it works for you! Shoot it !!!

My feelings exactly. I still would have purchased it if I knew it was made in Japan, though. Veery nice glass makers.
I just had my hopes up. ( snowflake sob)
