    • Buck Knife Co. is based in Idaho. Buck Knife Co. prides themselves on being an American company that sells products made in America. Last year I bought directly from their site for the first time (as compared to looking at something in a store and handling it first), just a small basic knife intended to be a gift for the young pre-teen son of a friend.

      When it arrived, I was disappointed in the poor quality. I opened the blade, and it said “Made in China”.

      I never bought from their site again, and discarded any thought of ever looking at a Buck again. Now I carry a Kershaw made in the U.S.A.

      • Buck still has some American made knives but you’ll pay extra for them. the knives have Made in America stamped on them. having said that Kershaw makes some good knives.

      • I’ll keep my KA-BAR… American made, American owned, USMC issue. Have a Combat knife, a Tanto, Warthog and a Dozier.

        • I have a fair collection of knives, some hand crafted and some high end but a Ka-Bar is what hangs on the side of my manpurse. Hard to beat a good, large, simple blade with an even better grip.

        • I’ve a lot of knives, and no disrespect to Gadsden Flag because the Randall is a razor blade my favorite knife if a Shrade Sharp Finger, it’s an old one, swapped my son for the Buck SS110(1979) that his mom used to carry. My cousin called china knives ” KERRANG steel” because when he’d throw it at a tree and hit his sks bayonet sideways itd come flying back at us going keranggg. It’s made outta tuff shit. He finally flung it up high in the tree throwing it to hard because he was pretending he was killing a cop he didnt like and it got stuck. I figured I could “bark” it out of the tree with the Weatherby but shot to low and blowed the bayonets end off. We took it to the grinder and hell you could hardly tell itd been hit. That was on the SKS I sold him. Dont know what happened to him or the SKS. He moved to Oregon.

      • gotta watch ’em all. easy to suss the non chicom versions, easy to be duped- buck, kershaw, sog, gerber, kabar… whatevs they all do both. all the crkt’s are outsourced. spydie has china, taiwan, japan and u.s.
        your first clue might be the blister pack hanging on a peg at the big box.

  1. All I know about SIG optics is the Romeo4S mounted on a 50AE DEagle w/an ADM QD low mount.
    Bought it because it’s made in the US (from some imported parts) and has a lifetime no questions warranty.
    The thing has held up great to over 1k rounds of 50AE.
    I bought it FULLY expecting it to fail from the punishment of 50AE.

  2. Well, let’s be honest, MOST electronic optics these days are made entirely or largely of parts manufactured in China. Not saying that’s a good thing, just saying it’s a fact. The Chinese make some good consumer electronics (and a lot of cheap s*** that isn’t worth the money). We would be better off if we made more of it here, for a million reasons. Since we don’t there are lots of other countries that would be better for us to do business with than China.

    Evaluate quality first, country of origin second.

    I’ve used Sig red dots, and they are (in my experience) quite good.

    Still, it is humorous that Sig has to schlep off to China to get their optics made. Guess that cheap Uighur slave labor really does cut costs.

    • That last bit is probably my biggest issue with buying Chinese products. I don’t want to be encouraging or rewarding that behavior.

      I recognize that, just as there are decent Chinese made items and cheap crap items, there are also “made in China” by paid workers and there’s “made in China” by forced labor out of their concentration camps. I generally avoid Chinese items when there’s a clear alternative I can afford, however if I know for a fact company X is using the Uyghurs, I’m out. I don’t need it.

      I do own one Holosun pistol optic, for a pistol without great alternatives (only thing I could find besides Holosun was the shield optics that break if you look at them weird). I have some old Chinese red dots lying around from before I knew any better. But I’m trying to get away from the Dragon as much as possible, and yes I realize the irony of typing on a Chinese electronic because I couldn’t source an alternative yet.

  3. The ‘normal’ text on this meme is:

    “Corporate needs you to find the differences
    between this picture and this picture.”

    Followed by: “They’re the same picture.”

    • It sounds more like you simply are unfamiliar with the memes reference (pictures). Or are you omnipotent, thus rendering this meme unpossible? Copernicus would have a bit of news for you…

  4. As red dots go, I’m perfectly happy with Sig. But then I’m not interested in putting a red dot on everything.

    • I’ve a got a Mule, and one of the TDIs.

      Wish they’d make a 3.9” non serrated flipper with four way clip position so I wouldn’t have to buy a CRKT.

      Also would love a fixed 3.9” Ka-Bar with a simple kydex sheath that I could add a pants-grabbing ulticlip to.

  5. Simple translation of non-meme text below picture:

    They are all made in China. This requires you to know and understand memes.

    I find this stuff amusing, partially because I’ve been learning Mandarin and was mostly able to read it, and partially because the content.

    But mostly it’s funny to see the same people click on the clearly labeled “Gun Meme of the Day” article and bitch about not understanding memes. Every day, ad infinitum, ad nauseam. Get a life.

      • The reason possums are suffering in the United States of, of, of, ☝️,,of America, is Donald Putins fault.

  6. I use a red dot on a couple weapons. But still prefer either a good quality telescopic sight, or just plain old fashioned open, iron sights. I’m much more concerned with the quality of the optics, than where or by who it’s made. And, yes, I would prefer to purchase American made products. Problem is much of what is assembled here is still put together from foreign made parts.

    • And the danger of putting most of your supply chain into a source that can be shut down for months on end.

      Yesterday my son and I went out to buy running track spikes. Not much choice in his size. No stock has arrived since March and no new stock until at least January.

  7. While getting my eyes checked I gave the optometrist a chuckle when I said I bet all these Chinese glasses we buy are just a little off so when they invade the US we won’t be able to see them clearly with our gunsites! I’m sure he thought I was nuts.

      • How high or dumb do you have to be to wander around in a desert for 40 years? The sun always comes up in the east and sets in the west, but nope, you get a bunch of certain people gathered together and theyll argue about it for ,,, well ,,,40 years.

        • Yeah, that whole ‘Exodus’ wandering in the desert thing is pretty much an Old Testament/Torah population manipulation tool.

          Even the Jews are skeptical about the ‘Exodus’ claim:

          “There is no direct evidence that people worshipping Yahweh sojourned in ancient Egypt, let alone during the time the Exodus is believed to have happened. There is indirect evidence that at least some did.”

          “Ex. 12:37 says “600,000 men on foot, beside children” went out from Egypt. That extrapolates to around two million people making the exodus (extrapolated from Numbers 1:46) .

          If around 2 million people left Egypt, when the entire population has been estimated at around 3 to 4.5 million, it would have been noticed, and would have resounded in Egyptian records.“

        • @Miner49er

          Seriously, have you never done any biblical context research at all?

          The term ’40’ did not literally mean the Jews wandered around the desert for 40 years.

          “600,000 men on foot, beside children” did not mean 600,000.

          It was a word, in old testament contexts, that only meant “very many“ or in other words simply a lot of people left. It did not mean 600,000 literally. Numbers back then in old testament context weren’t really literal numbers like we have today, they were context’s and words that were interpreted to mean numbers later and values were arbitrarily attached trying to define a context that was only known at the time it happened. There were probably, maybe, between a few hundred at first… they were joined later by others to form ‘communities’ as they scattered into other lands so all together maybe up to as many as a few thousand at most out of ALL of Egypt AND surrounding lands, not just in the capital city of Egypt or as the movies and stories and gross misunderstanding and interpretations as you put forth.

          There were members of the 12 tribes of Israel that formed what is referred to as the ‘Exodus’, they scattered mostly.

          Where the wandering for 40 years comes from is that God forbade them from entering the ‘promised land’ for a literal 40 years. It does not mean they wandered around in a literal barren sandy desert for 40 years. They knew where the promised land was, everyone of the time knew where it was including the Egyptians – it wasn’t a secret and was part of the known world of the time. The Jews could have gone there at any time, they even sent scouts to take a look, but God had forbidden ALL of them from entering the promised land for 40 years. Most of them settled in other lands of the time.

          The ‘wandering’ context part refers to that the Jews were not in the promised land, forbidden by God from going there for 40 years. In the old testament context, Jews that didn’t live in the promised land were considered ‘wandering’ and that outside the promised land was considered the ‘desert’ (of the world – meaning lands deprived of Gods blessing thus barren as a desert in terms of being barren of Gods blessings) thus, basically, the context of ‘wandering in the desert for 40 years’. (do not confuse the term ‘wandering’ with the term ‘Wandering Jew’ legend that started in 13th century Europe.)

    Wierd ain’t it, it’s kinda like when I torture living things and they make sounds. I mean what’s the use of squawking????? Its not like that’s going to do anything?
    I think one of these days after I torture enough stuff. Maybe? I’ll figure out why stuff squawks?
    So far the only thing I’ve found is reptiles and insects. If anyone knows of any other things that can be tortured that do not make sounds please let me know. I’m kinda getting tired of torturing shit, like what do you think, ?

    You see Jeremy. ?
    It’s better when Gracie does the thing and you do the caption. Hell yes everything “We” buy is made in China,,, that’s because we are The POORS, the majority, get it.
    Anyway all that Chinese shot shows me is you’ve downloaded a translate apple and your all juicy.

    • Yah know come to think about it I bet flys squawk when I pull their wings off it’s just that I cant hear them.
      Them Cicadas put up a hell of a racket.
      If you really wanna hear some screaming, I do, I like pulling people apart with a tractor. Gotta put it in low low and barely keep her idling to get the full effect. Buts it’s a lot of fun if you dont mind the cost of the tractor.

  11. “它们都是中国制造的. 这需要您认识并了解模因”

    Not true today. Not all Sig optics are made in China today. Today; Most Sig optics are assembled in either the United States (either at their facilities New Hampshire or Arkansas) or in Germany. All Sig optics today and designed in the United States in Oregon.

    • Of the Sig optics today not assembled in the US, they are assembled in either Japan or Germany with the exception of two of their scopes which are assembled in China from parts made in Germany and China. Sig mostly uses glass made in either Germany or Japan.

      All red dots and scopes on the market today contain components made in China .

      • to add… the three Sig rifle scope lines – their Whiskey, Tango, and Sierra lines, were at one time assembled in China. The Tango line is now made in Wilsonville, Oregon.

    • correction > “All Sig optics today and designed in the United States in Oregon.”

      should have been “All Sig optics today are designed in the United States in Oregon.”

  12. Why not review some non-China scopes here on TTAG instead of using bandwidth to inform those here that most RDSs have China parts/assembly.

    I own a few Trijicon and Leupold scopes that have NO connection to China.
    Why no reviews of that sort of stuff here?

    Oh, that’s right. Most talk about not wanting to purchase China optics until the moment they see the non-China quality stuff costs 3x-6x the cost of their rifle.
    Then they’re always willing to embrace the suck, and tell those who purchased quality optics that theirs is ‘just as good’. 🙄

    • @James Campbell

      “I own a few Trijicon and Leupold scopes that have NO connection to China.”

      Hmmm…. no….

      Trijicon and Leupold scopes use some components made in China. At a minimum, the reticle adjustment mechanism for windage and elevation is made in China then imported and sourced in the U.S. and the product is assembled in the U.S. . Trijicon scopes also use a significant amount of components from Japan, who sources the the reticle adjustment mechanism from China.

      Its a loop hole in the ‘Made In USA’ thing. If the parts are sourced in the the US, even if they came from China or another country, then the product is assembled in the US it can claim to be 100% ‘Made In The USA’ or to be ‘American Made’. Its ‘legally’ true, can be claimed in statements and advertising. If you look carefully at the wording from Trijicon and Leupold on their web sites you will find they use the word ‘assembled’, for example….

      “The vast majority of Trijicon products, including ACOG®, VCOG®, RMR®, RMR®cc SRO®, MRO®, Iron Sights, MGRS®, CCAS®, Thermal Optics, Mounts, and Archery Sights are designed, engineered, machined, and assembled at our facilities in Wixom, Michigan or Auburn, California, and are therefore 100% Made in the USA.

      Our AccuPoint® riflescopes are assembled in the USA but have significant components purchased in Japan.”

      “Leupold riflescopes are all designed, machined, and assembled in our Beaverton Oregon manufacturing facility.”

      The word ‘assembled’ is the word used to exploit the loophole to claim a ‘Made In USA’ status.

      Its a confusing thing, I know, but every firearm optic on the market uses at least some components from China.

      • I was aware of Japanese parts in the Trijicon and Leupold, not the Chinese parts though.

        I’m glad these two manufacturers keep it to a bare minimum, and provide industry leading warranties on their products.
        This indicates that they likely keep close oversight over materials and processes in the China production facilities. Not all ‘Made in China’ items are created equal.

        My Trijicon and Leupold scopes have unlimited lifetime warrantees, if the scope is discontinued it’s replaced with the newer version that supplanted it.
