To tell you the truth, I just am leery of gun manufacturers that diversify and go into other fields. S&W back in the 70’s and 80’s got into ammo and other markets, ultimately they went away. Colt had optics and other items and they went away too.
I guess the same could be said about optic companies. But I feel better buying an item from a company that makes that and it’s their bread and butter.
I’ve heard a few cases of Leupold fixing or replacing obsolete optics.
We see this a lot though, its all about brand, for instance theres glock, sig and s&w knives. I think glock has a shovel. s&w has flashlights. Sig has sights. But i think other than their main firearms manufacturing most of these other products are outsourced and just have their logo.
