I bought a Weaver Classic Extreme 1.5-4.5x24 of Natchez couple years ago for a Marlin 1894 44mag. Realized after it was made in the Phillipines. Glass is decent, illuminated dot in the crosshairs doesn't always come on. Decent scope for what I use it for, probably would buy a Leupold or Burris if I did it again.
I have an original Weaver Classic Extreme that was made in Japan,excellent scope. I also bought a couple more from Natchez,after inspecting them I called Natchez and asked about their Classic Extreme scopes since they are clearly marked made in the Philippines. They didn't know what to say,so I spent a while on the phone with several people at Weaver and finally got the facts about the scope that Natchez is selling as a closeout.
Weaver produces the scope for Natchez as an exclusive deal,it's not a "real" Classsic Extreme scope it is made in the same place as Weaver's Kaspa series. It does have the Japanese lenses,but it's not the same quality scope as the original CE scope. The ones I bought have an extreme amount of eye relief over the original scope,almost too much eye relief for a rifle scope.
Weaver shouldn't have done this with their products,and I no longer trust buying any optics from Natchez Shooters Supply. They knowingly mislead customers selling sub-standard products that they call closeouts,when it actually is just a cheaper made version of the original product.
They have also sold a version of the Weaver Super Slam scope that isn't a real Super Slam. It has capped turrets just like the Classic Extreme,but the scope says it's a Super Slam!
Buyer Beware when buying optics from Natchez!!!!
