I have heard that the Weaver Classic K Series are made in Japan.

Can anyone confirm this?

Thanks

From what I found online, it would appear that they are. However I did not confirm beyond a shadow of a doubt.....just what was written in some blogs and online forums. My suggestion would be to e-mail the company directly with the specific question.

Thanks.

Seeing the same stuff, but nothing concrete.

I was hoping for "Mine is stamped Japan". LOL

I'd order one fast if I knew they were made in Japan.

Would rather find an El Paso Weaver K on Ebay that was in good shape.

I saw some decent priced 4x's from the El Paso plant on ebay yesterday.
I haven't ever bought anything off of ebay.

I am really wanting a 6x.
Wouldn't mind having another 4x as well.

I have 4 of the Weaver Classic Extremes from Natchez, I believe they are the best bang for the buck out there.

As far as being made in Japan, yup I believe so, and Japan can make some awesome glass so I'm good with it.

I agree David, Japan can turn out some good optics.
That is why I was wondering & hoping for.

Good luck Chuck.
Kinda glad I don't have an ebay account. LOL

check out these from Natchez, Bill Wilson turned me on to them, I have 3 of the 2.5-10x50mm and one of the 4-16x50mm, all with the German #4 reticle.

The glass is great, and one of my friends got one and took it outside and compared it to his Vortex and the glass on the Weaver he said was much better especially in low light:
