Anybody know who builds binoculars for Browning? They look very close to the Leupolds.

Theres a company overseas that builds Leupolds Wind River line to their specs. I think it was in the Philipines but I'v heard its now a Japanese co. I wouldn't be surprised if they'r contracted to Browning,Cabelas and others.

I'm not sure, but they were also very close to a Bausch & Lomb pair that I tried.

I preferred the Browning glass better though... Less chromatic abberation was the only thing I really noticed. Could of just been sample variation, don't know for sure.
