If you are in the market for binoculars, spotting scope, or a rifle scope and have not heard of Maven optics, listen up. Maven jumped into the optics market in 2014, and is based out of Lander Wyoming. The company is built upon the idea that optics can be developed without compromise in quality or performance, all without the big box store markup.
There is an abundance of optics companies these day all competing for your dollar and loyalty. Vortex Optics is one of those companies and they have developed quite the cult following in recent years. That following was built upon their “VIP” warranty. It states that no matter what happens, your Vortex product will either be fixed or replaced. In the world of hunting, if your optics fail, you are going to have a slim chance of success. Hopefully you will never have to test their warranty, but it is nice to know it is there.
Washington Backcountry recently had the pleasure of heading over to Lewiston Idaho to the home of Seekins Precision. If you have never heard of Seekins Precision before, one of the best “freedom manufacturers” in the country, they specialize in rifle and small parts manufacturing.
