Aero Precision’s roots are deeply tied to aerospace, and their drive for clean, perfect engineering and machining stems from that. When they’re building something that will fly in the air, there is no margin for error. They take that same approach in the firearms industry. Not every manufacturer will have razor thin tolerance levels. Not every manufacturer will personally oversee the development, design and machining of every part that comes off the line. They’re not every manufacturer.

The aluminum used in our uppers and lowers is 7075T6, 3x beyond aircraft specifications and quite simply the strongest aluminum on the planet. Their state-of-the-art Mazak Horizontal Machining Centers ensure that your rifle is perfect in every way. They take pride in their company and in the USA. Nearly 40% of their 100+ workforce are US Veterans.
BARRETT (MADE IN THE USA): Barrett
More than thirty years ago, Ronnie Barrett built something no one thought possible – a shoulder-fired .50 caliber rifle so innovative, the Army itself would sing its praises. From sketching his designs at the dining room table to working with a local tool and die maker to create parts that didn’t yet exist, every millimeter of the Model 82 was a direct result of Ronnie’s passion for the ultimate firearm. That obsession still fuels our company today.
It’s one thing to manufacture guns, and another to live and breathe them. Whether they’re carefully assembling the latest rifle, engineering scope rings that are stronger than ever or increasing the velocity and precision of the ammunition itself – they’re always working with one goal in mind: absolute perfection.

SEEKINS PRECISION (Idaho): Seekins Precision
The American Dream. Everyone wants a piece of it as Thomas Wolfe once described it: “…to every man, regardless of his birth, his shining, golden opportunity…the right to live, to work, to be himself, and to become whatever thing his manhood and his vision can combine to make him.” When Glen Seekins founded Seekins Precision, it was no surprise to those who knew him well. He comes from a long line of hard-working entrepreneurs, so becoming one himself was only natural. Following The American Dream seemed to be engrained in his DNA.
A 2004 deer hunt that was unsuccessful due to broken scope rings spurred Glen to develop a concept for rings that could withstand the elements of the Idaho mountains while weighing less than tactical steel rings. Drawing upon his mechanical design background, Glen returned from the hunt, fired up his CAD program, and spent the next few evenings designing Seekins Precision’s flagship product: SP Scope Rings. He took his design to the machine shop that employed him at the time, and together they manufactured the first set of rings. The design of the SP Scope Rings has not changed since it was first mounted on Glen’s hunting rifle.
When the rings became extremely popular in the local shooting community, Glen’s entrepreneurial spirit immediately went into overdrive. He continued to work as a mechanical designer by day, and by night, he trained himself on a rented Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machine and built scope rings. A few months later, Glen and his wife, Katie, took a leap of faith and purchased the machine, which they housed in their garage. During those early days, Glen would manufacture, assemble, and ship the rings while Katie managed the orders and accounting side of the business. By November of 2005, business had increased enough for Glen to leave his design job, and Seekins Precision became a full-time operation.
The demand for Seekins Precision’s products was astonishing, and it wasn’t long before Glen and Katie relocated from their garage to a 1,500 square foot local business incubator. Around the same time, Glen designed and manufactured Seekins Precision’s first billet lower and unveiled it at SHOT Show. Upon returning, he began designing a full line of AR products.
After the addition of employees and machinery in 2010, Seekins Precision had outgrown their initial incubator space and moved into the largest one available, which was 7,500 square feet. They have continued to grow and are again out of space, but in August 2013, Seekins Precision purchased land for a building they will move into upon completion in March 2014. With over 25,000 square feet, it provides ample room for growth, an important feature since Seekins Precision has expanded to include more than ten major product lines (including complete rifles) since its inception.
The Seekins’ version of The American Dream has been realized in the ten years Seekins Precision has been in business, and they are grateful to the customers and friends they have made over the years. Drop in and see them soon at 159 American Way, Lewiston, Idaho.

TACTICAL SOLUTIONS (Idaho): TacSol
Way back in 2002, when Nickelback was still blasting on the top 40 charts (yup, that happened), TacSol was busy getting ready to introduce something that would change the firearms industry forever. In 2002 TacSol unleashed our limitless custom capabilities with the introduction of a lightweight, colorful and packable package called the “Pac-Lite” into the market.
Lightweight and aesthetically pleasing was something that hadn’t been tapped into. When we initially launched our Pac-Lites, our goal was to grow the sport. We asked ourselves “how can we get more women and children shooting?” Our answer was easy – make it visually and physically enjoyable to shoot. Thus, our colorful and lightweight designs. Turns out, it appealed to most everyone.
Since the Pac-Lite’s successful debut, we’ve enjoyed introducing our customers to other lightweight options for their factory rifles and pistols. On the top of this list are replacement barrels, Conversions and accessories to increase usability and bring life back into the Browning® Buck Mark®, Ruger® 10/22®, AR-15, GLOCK® and 1911
TacSol has pioneered the .22LR industry by introducing new products that test the limitations of the .22. Numerous World, National, Regional and Local matches are now infiltrated with TacSol products, but more importantly, they’re helping to win titles.
Many companies, both large and small, have tried to mimic our products, but there is only one TacSol and we make the best products out there…just look at the leader boards.
