    No. Towards the end few years they were made "overseas" and then dropped from RCBS's lineup with new mechanical scales offered.

    I have one of each , Ohaus and RCBS.
    I just happened to be looking on-line and noticed none for sale.
    Good scale. To bad they dropped it.
    I wonder why???

    It's probably expensive to make such a high quality scale. It has to compete with cheap scales, and many people don't appreciate quality. There's also the competition from electronic scales, which are not as accurate, and not as precise (can't split the tenths, not that anybody would need to). Electronic scales are also more subject to error from temperature. But people want them.

    I had an electronic scale once.
    Didn't like it at all.
    To long to set-up, to sensitive and numbers kept changing.
    Just didn't feel comfortable with it.
    Beam scale goes with the KISS theory for me.

    10-10 scales are being sold on Amazon right now. The word is they are possibly not the real deal. They aren't listed on the Ohaus site, so it is assumed that someone got a hold of the tooling and is producing them. I imagine the factory warranty is useless.
    But, they are being sold by Amazon, so any issues or you don't like it, they will cover all costs if you want to send it back. (love Amazon)


    I enjoy using my pretty old 10-10, and an even older Lyman M5. I don't trust the electric ones for powder work. I have one of those myweigh contraptions that were popular a few years ago. I used it a couple times for weighing .223 finished rounds...

    A few months ago I called both RCBS and Ohaus concerning parts for a used 10-10 I came across. The answer from both was the same. Nope. Discontinued scale that they no longer support. Glad my original is still working great!!!

    The 1010 scale is listed on Amazon as no longer available.The scales are available on EBay used and can sometimes be found at a decent price.The Lyman M-5 scale is the same scale and can also be found used.

    I'm considering picking one up in the near future. Had one years ago and regret getting rid of it. Bad decision on my part.

    The 10-10s are still on Amazon. I just checked and added one to my cart. The Lyman M5 is not the same scale. I have both.

    A 10-10 scale is indeed on Amazon.I searched for the 1010 scale which is not available.I wonder where the 10-10 is made?The Lyman M-5 scale I have was made by OHaus and appears to be the same as the 1010.I do not have a RCBS scale to compare it to.

    No, the Lyman is a different scale, lacking the micro adjustment thumb wheel set up of the 10-10.

    I have both scales.

    My go to an old Pacific/Hornady, but it's hardly ever use anymore.
    I use a Lyman auto scale.
    I've used the 10-10 a few times just to see how good it is.
    Very good scale.
    Only thing i didn't like about it, was getting it all back in, so the cover would go back on.
