Answer: 
Milwaukee tools are only "designed" at their facility in Brookfield, Wisconsin. Sadly, as of 2008, the parent company of Milwaukee has their tools made in China now.

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 19 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Powerful & well made Milwaukee Drill Was in the middle of a project, installing a TV on a stone fireplace and my other corded drill was burning up so I picked this Milwaukee Magnum up to finish it. Wow, its 8 amps and strong gear driven chuck was noticeable immediately. I was using 1 inch by18 inch drill bits (wood and masonry) and this monster just cruised through the wood and concrete without smoking and stalling like my other 1/2 inch drive drill. I just wish I had started with this Milwaukee drill at the beginning of my project. The chuck seems to have more precision in tightening than entry level corded drills and being an old guy I like the keyed chuck version better. I would not use this for screws as it is too powerful and does not have an immediate brake when you release the trigger, but for major hole boring it's a keeper! Other reviewers mentioned its weight, but it weighs about the same as my other 1/2 inch drill. One last comment, I also liked the grooves on the side handle so it fits tight and will not slip when locked into place. July 3, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best gift This drill was exactly what my daughter need for work. She loved it. January 3, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This beast does it all!!!! I bought this milwaukee drill to end my 5 hour frustration with a cordless drill. Needless to say, this beast took care of the "5 hour" job in less than 5 minutes. Paid for itself in less than 5 minutes, highly recommended!!! October 23, 2012
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by good drill so far but.... This drill has a lot of power but like in the one star review on this product my chuck started to come loose on first use with a 3/4 auger when drilling through telephone poles even thought the drill barely even strained. So i tightened the chuck back one the drill removed the chuck set screw cleaned and put it back with blue threadlocker. after waiting the recommended 24 hours for threadlocker to set i then used the largest auger 1 1/4 inch I had one a scrap pole and had no issues so far. if i do i will be posting another review. I recommend tightening chuck and applying blue threadlocker to setscrew, otherwise you will break it. October 3, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Fell apart in reverse The chuck screw broke and the drill fell apart when I put it in reverse. Shame that such a beast of a drill is held together with a tiny wimpy little screw. Now it's just a mud mixer- only works in forward- put it in reverse and the chuck unscrews and falls off. May 10, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by lots of power I bought this drill to drill holes into 4x4 posts, had no problems , went right through it like it was butter. Tried using it to drive screws through 2x6s, I could not handle the power, this tool is not ideal for driving screws, there is no clutch settings like the cordless drills so basically i was guessing at the depth of my screws. I tried using it for my 3" holesaw, too powerful for this also, have to watch the kickbacks when using it with a holesaw. This drill is ideal for drilling holes, mixing, or using with a wire brush, but anything else I would go with a cordless. I would highly recommend this tool to anyone that needs a lot of holes to drill, but to use just to drive screws, no. December 1, 2010
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good, powerful drill. Heavy. I've owned this drill for a couple years. It is an extremely powerful and heavy drill. Build quality is great. It has a keyed chuck, which obviously isn't as fast as the keyless, but it's stronger. There is no electronic brake, so after you take your finger off the trigger it takes awhile to slow down, unlike my cordless drill which stops immediately. This takes some getting used to. The 2nd handle can easily be attached or taken off and is really good for 2 handed operations. This drill isn't really suitable for using in a horizontal position with one hand. It's just way too heavy and long. This is not what it was intended for, though. February 24, 2010
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Milwaukee Power at it's best. I really like this drill. It'll power through anything that I've put it to drilling. I have always considered Milwaukee products to be the "Rolls-Royce" of power tools. This reasonably priced Milwaukee drill is no exception. It's great! I particularly like the keyed chuck. I no longer have the necessary hand strength to use a key less chuck. So this drill's keyed chuck has proved itself to be a godsend to me. The keyed chuck is a must have feature for some of us senior citizens. April 8, 2014
