I went to buy a BBQ pit today and wanted a OLd Smokey pit. I found them for about $40. Right next to them they had the exact looking pit on the box, same size, selling for $27. Of course the $27 was a chinese knock off of the Old Smokey. I paid $13 more for the OS. It is just un-American to buy a chinese BBQ pit. Vote with your pocket book and buy an USA made product vrs a China product. Now back to my BBQ.

I find myself doing the same lately. I look at where the products are made and very much prefer to by MADE IN THE USA.

Yep. If we want to keep manufacturing jobs in the US then BUY American!

Are you sure it wasn't made in China and just assembled in the US?

Walmart is selling an exact knockoff of a Harris Bipod now for about $30 less than the similiar Harris model. It looks like an exact twin. The only question would be the quality of the metal in comparison.

It's discouraging how they can copy stuff without legal issues.
