Innovation. Value. Performance. These are Kruger Optical's core values, and we strive to incorporate them into all the products we offer. We believe today's optics consumer is looking for an alternative to the products now dominating the market. Look in the optics section of your local sporting goods store. You'll notice that most products fall into two categories: traditional brands you pay a lot for (though they often rely on decades-old technology), and cheaper products whose quality matches their prices.

At Kruger, we believe many customers are looking for something different. For those customers, we are creating products containing innovations to improve performance, as well as affordable products that don’t sacrifice quality. We are betting there are customers out there who are willing to try a new brand offering better performance for the price. Since its inception in 1998, Kruger (formerly Pacific Rim Optical) has grown from a component supplier into an engineering-based company focused on new product development. Headquartered in Tigard, Oregon, Kruger now supplies riflescopes, binoculars, spotting scopes, optical components, subassemblies and other products to various markets. With a combined 150 years of engineering experience, we focus on engineering value into our products. Our work is evident in the product lines of our many private label customers, as well as in our Kruger® branded products. In addition, we are still an excellent source of lenses, molded optics, subassemblies and other components through our Kruger Components division. All Kruger branded products are engineered and tested in our Oregon engineering lab, which is equipped to test all aspects of our products. Equipment includes optical interferometers, collimators and impact testers. The Kruger brand includes high-end, made-in-the-USA products such as the Dual Tactical Sight® (DTS®), which is manufactured in the company’s Oregon facility (from U.S. and imported components). Other products, such as the K4, are Crafted in the USA (engineered and assembled in Oregon from high-quality imported components). The Oregon site includes a 10k clean room, manufacturing area and a full machine shop. Other products and components are manufactured in Kruger’s ISO 9001 and ISO 9002 certified partner factories in Asia. These factories are world leaders in optics manufacturing, producing difficult, European-style optics at value prices. Our QA and communications office in Shanghai, China, help assure that all orders are completed according to plan. Kruger’s professional-grade riflescopes, spotters and binoculars contain high-end features that are normally seen in much higher-priced products: color corrected APO objectives, fully broadband AR coated optics, hydrophobic and scratch resistant lens coatings, high performance ranging reticles, and much more. TacDriver™ by Kruger, recently dubbed outstanding “optics for the working man” by Shotgun News Magazine, was designed to offer excellent performance in an affordable scope.
