The ER 5 scopes are now discontinued. Can the "closed secret" of their place of manufacture be revealed? I had heard that they were made in the USA briefly, then made by Leica in Portugal due to slow fabrication in the USA.

Did Zeiss USA make these?

I bought some bullets from Rimshot and he is good to trade with!
Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!
