SOME of the FEW European companies make MOST of their own--FEWER ALL.
Other than that they are Japanese and Chinese. There are hundreds of brands and models that come from Asia. They ALL come from a handful of manufacturers. It has been that way for decades. David Bushnell was an IMPORTER, not a manufacturer!

I just found my Skymasters on that website, amazing. Thanks for the information all. Is there anywhere in the US that manufactures on any kind of large scale anymore?
There hasn't been a line of CONSUMER binoculars made in the United States for decades!!!
This statement is usually followed by some people who want to debate the issue. But since I had to deal with this the last time, I have spent the $50 I offered anyone who could prove me wrong. And no, photos of ladies wiping off objectives for rifle scopes at Leupold does not constitute making binoculars.
And YES, there are some instruments with axle covers that say "Made in the USA." However, they are Japanese parts, assembled largely by Japanese workers, but happen to be on US soil to help get US government contracts.
