Don't know but I will be able to tell you in a few days. Mine is coming from Midway USA(not an endorsement)and I am putting it on top of a SBH Hunter.... I heard that the Fullfield are made overseas but the rest are made in the USA.

Two years ago during load testing with my Encore in 35-06 JDJ the Burris 3x12 B-Plex scope eye piece section shattered, I was 14 days out of opening of deer season. In haste I took it off and sent it in to Burris, planning to switch barrels for something else for the opener the Encore hammer fell apart in my hand. It was the Encore hammer that bounced and crushed the scope, no fault of the scope. Burris called me upon receipt of the scope and said it was damaged beyond repair and they would ship me a new replacement. Three days later my new 3x12 B-Plex arrived, Burris stood by their ?forever? warranty.
I have 3 Burris 3x12 B-Plex on my Encore pistol barrels, 1 Burris 2x7 Plex on my 358JDJ Contender. I recently added 2 Burris 2x7 Plex for my BFR 475 Linebaugh & BFR 500 JRH. I also use their FFII 4.5 x 14 on a couple Encore rifle barrels.
I also have 3 Leupold 2.5x8 and 1 small 4x, in comparison I find the clarity of the two (Leupold & Burris) on pair with each other, the Leupold has a bigger eye objective which is nice. My 4x is small and over 20 years old, the Burris is much sharper and I plan to replace it with a new Burris 2x7 Plex later this summer.
The Burris?s scopes have worked for me over these many years trouble free. Hope this helps.

I have about 15 Burris 3-12X BPlexes on my XPs, Encores, Contenders from .223 to .375/.284, some old, some new, for the last 15 years. My total number of problems has been exactly ONE. The crosshairs stopped responding to movement on a .309 JDJ. Burris fixed it-no charge. That was about 6 years ago. I'm totally sold on this scope until someone makes a better long range handgun scope.

I love my Burris scope, although it's on a rifle. It's a FullField II. I'll be swapping my Simmons Pro Hunter pistol scope on my Encore 7-08 for the Burris Pistol Scope as soon as I can. The Simmons will be mounted on something else. It's been a good scope, I'm just a little partial to Burris now.

That forever warranty means I only need to buy once.

OK, Dick. Maybe in another 39 years of exclusive handgun hunting I might have a clue what's going on.
You're gonna love the BPlex. I shot a groundhog a few days ago at 412 with my 6mmAI Encore. Ranged him, put the plex that matched 400 slightly above him and dead 'hog. Pretty easy.
A little clue, for most calibers below .30, if you sight in 2 1/2" high at 100 you'll be dead on at 250. Each Plex is another 50 yds. and top the bottom crosshair is around 500. Not exact, but pretty close, depending on the round.
For anything over .30, use the 2 1/2" high at 100, then dead on at 200, and each Plex is 50 with the bottom crosshair 400.
.30 cal. is the only cal. that doesn't fit this exactly.
It's really cool with my .375/.284 to shoot deer and groundhogs from 350 to 400 with witnesses. They can't believe a round that big will do things like that at those distances. I live and breath this stuff. Helps keep me young.

Just got my 2x20 Burris in the mail. It is marked made in the Philippines.
But it still comes with the forever warranty no questions asked.

Looks good on top of the SBH Hunter.
