    I say China. The MS660 lettering is different from Stihl and it doesn't have Stihl on the pull cover.

    And $495 for a brand new MS660 with a 24" bar definitely China. I'd stay away from it if you're considering getting it.

    I am not going to waste my money on it, it caught my eye tho until I saw made in China and noticed the saw, box, and manual didn't say Stihl on it. They did copy the box it comes in and the manual pritty well except for saying Stihl.

    I looked at the pics very closely the air filter cover looks to be a different shade of orange from a real stihl.

    Seems like the price is a lil strong to me...at least until they establish a good reputation (potentially)
    I'd think about gambling on one if the price was more like 10% of a new Stihl MS 660(1)
