Originally founded as a manufacturer of sling swivels for the gunsmith trade, Michaels of Oregon is a leading manufacturer of hunting, shooting and law enforcement accessories. With brand names such as Uncle Mike’s® and Uncle Mike’s Law Enforcement, the company manufactures and distributes holsters, slings, swivels, gun cases, belts, and other hunting, shooting, military and law enforcement gear.

Over the course of NEP’s investment, multiple add-on acquisitions were completed, and the company realized successful execution of its growth strategy.

Michaels of Oregon was sold to Bushnell® Performance Optics in August 2005.
