Default Who makes Thompson Center scopes?

I just recieved a simmons pistol scope in the mail and just don't think this is the scope i was looking to top my .308 Savage striker that i have on order.

I'm leaning towards a Burris, but one ofmy remaining options is the Thompson Center line up. I doubt they actually make their own optics and most likely have someone else make them for them and then they slap there name on it.
(I've been wrong before [8D])

Does anyone know if they infact make them in house or who makes their scopes for them??

I agree with Mossy, I bought a used Contender pistol with a T/C scope on it. I had already made up my mind to trash it, but aftera couple of range sessions, I was surprised at how well it worked.
