About Us

Firearms and optics are investments worth protecting. Butler Creek® produces innovative, field-proven accessories that improve the shooting experience for hunters and tactical enthusiasts alike. The wide array of accessories are designed by shooters who know the value of quality and durability.

Butler Creek traces its roots back to Montana in the 1930s, when founder De Vissing was challenged by a friend to invent a product that kept scope lenses dry, yet allowed the scope to be used at a moment's notice. Vissing produced scope covers in his basement, and sold them through sporting goods magazines.

Brothers Fred and Bill Heckerman bought the company, eventually renaming it Butler Creek after the small body of water that ran through their jointly owned property in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. The product line expanded over the years and now includes slings, straps, magazines and magazine loaders.
