    Expected better.

    Where are the Swarovski z3 made?
    Might buy a couple to replace some Gold rings.
    Swaroski scopes and crystal are made in Austria. Customer Service in Rhode Island.

    Have two Leupold "Freedom" series scopes.
    On my 6.8mm Rem SPC, is a 1.5-4×20
    On my bull barrel 5.56/.223 is a 3-9×40

    Right now, both shoot lights out. But both are on AR's and recoil is negligible.
    I'm at 1" to 1.5" groups at 100. They need a little fine tuning, but I'll get there.

    A week ago, I picked up the 6.8mm to move it.....the scope rotated in the rings! WT.....?
    Spent yesterday stripping the scope, leveling the upper receiver, gas block to the barrel. Leveled the scope and torqued the screws.
    Scrubbed the barrel, dusted the scope lens and lubed the BCG.

    Heard from reputable source that the Swaro Z3 is better than the Leupold VX3i but not by much.

    The VX3 series was changed to VX3i and iirc is bow VX3 HD.

    Dunno wth theyre thinking over there.

    Prices on the 5 and 6 stuff is up there

    Looking at Swaro and Zeiss but wonder what stuff of theirs is built outside of europe.

    Currently have less than a dozen scopes, all Leupold VX3i or lesser.

    Have owned proly 30 over the years.
    4 have been bad from the factory, new.
    Replaced or fixed and no problems after.

    No failures afield.

    No probs w used ones.

    Can’t blame you for sticking with what you know, following the conversation elsewhere I got the impression most folks didn’t get it wasn’t the scope that was the problem so much as the poor QC from the refurb.

    Bubba,
    For reliability and value and non-China junk, the Burris Fullfield II line made in PI is about all there is that I’m aware of. The Sightron S II was made in Japan and very reliable. Unless one bumps up to the high-priced spread, I guess it’s Leupold or Chinese stuff. Happy Trails

    Problem is, I can't afford Zeiss.
    I'm not impressed with Leupold's "Freedom" series, but their high end VX-III series seems to still be good quality....but since I don't own nor likely to afford their VX-III series, I'm in a dilemma.

    Vortex, for me, has been a "so-so" trade off. Affordable and pretty dog gone accurate.

    In today's world, I'm having a hard time justifying buying much of anything "Made in China".

    So, what kind of choices does today's shooter have.
    Affordable and reliable?
