Frequently Asked Questions Q: Where are these items made? A: These scopes, lights, and other accessories are manufactured in China and are imported to the United States. NcSTAR has offices in the US.
Q: What batteries do they use? A: For the illuminated scopes, most of NcSTAR's scopes will use commonly found button cell batteries such as CR2032s and LR44 style button cell batteries.

Q: What is the average price range of these optics? A: NcSTAR makes a wide variety of scopes suited for all levels of players. You can get ones that cost as little as $20 or you can spend almost $100.

Q: What type of player are these scopes made for? A: Any player who could benefit from a scope is suited for this. People with bad eyes or simply dislike the difficulty of iron sights, or just want faster target acquisition would do well with any form of optic. Optics can be setup to sit more in line with your natural aiming points since when we wear airsoft gear and safety items, it may be harder to get a proper cheekweld on your favorite gun. Both NcSTAR and VISM offer red dot sights and magnified scopes.
Q: What can you mount these optics to? A: The majority of NcSTAR's optics are meant for picatinny railed guns, both real and and airsoft, which means anything with a top rail will do.

This warranty applies to US customers only. Their VISM line also has the same warranty for their firearm grade optics as well so buy either with the utmost confidence.
Q: What sets NcSTAR apart from the others? A: NcSTAR has established themselves as the go to brand for airsoft optics. Their wide selection, build quality, and great price makes them an easy choice for everybody.
