    Think of getting one of Cabelas riflescope does anyone know who and where they are made. Are they worthy the price?

    Thanks

    They are outsourced to various Chinese & other factories depending on the price range.

    The more expensive lines are pretty good.

    The less expensive lines are about par for the course with other cheap Chinese scopes.

    to my knowledge nobody knows. haven't been able to come up with an answer after trolling google for a couple years. I find posts of "the guy at cabelas told me ________ makes them" with the blank being will with bushnell, leupold nikon, tasco or whoever. I'm of the opinion that whatever factory in china they can get to make something roughly to their specs for the lowest cost makes them and the mfg. changes yearly if not more often.

    Beyond that I don't have much to offer other than that I see a lot of them in the bargain cave at the stores. I assume they are returns. My only personal experience was with a pine ridge reflex sight from the bargain cave. turn out it was permanently attached crooked on the integral mount. I returned it.

    I've got it on good authority that Pentax made many of the Cabelas Alaskan guide models. This was 3-4 years ago.

    Own two. One 4-16 and the other 6-20. Both have done well on .223 and .308 varmint/target rifles.

    I recently looked at some of the tactical scopes in that brand and just didn't like the glass. They looked good, with cool features and price, but optically weren't very good to me. The guy at Cabela's told me who he thinks makes them, but I forgot. Sorry
