Kevin Peterson. 

U.S. Optics president and owner Pat Harrigan says the people who produce the guns truly have a passion for it.

Harrigan says that whether they are selling to professional shooters, military, law enforcement or everyday people, the level of production doesn’t waver.

“Regardless of who our end client is we produce the scope to the same standard and our standards are we want to produce the very best scope in the world and we believe we do.” Harrigan added that they moved to Kalispell in hopes of finding a market more suitable for their product.
