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.
