A quick search now shows ATK owning Bushnell, Weaver, and Simmons and the AETECs being sold as Weavers.
Kind of funny I get a lifetime warranty with anything coming out of Meade Labs. I don't even have to save the receipt. There are no riflescopes sold under the Meade Labs name. Meade Labs brand items are telescopes and microscopes.
A quick search confirmed that Bushnell could be purchased by ATK.
The people asked not to be identified because the matter is confidential. They cautioned that a deal has not yet been finalized and negotiations could still fall apart.
MidOcean Partners and Bushnell declined to comment, while ATK did not respond to a request for comment.
Bushnell hired Morgan Stanley and Robert W. Baird to shop the company, other people familiar with the matter told Reuters in February.
Founded in 1948, Overland Park, Kansas-based Bushnell makes accessories such as binoculars, telescopes, night vision equipment and GPS devices for sports like hunting and fishing. Its brands include Butler Creek, Final Approach, Hoppe’s, Millett, Night Optics, Primos, Simmons, Stoney Point, Tasco and Uncle Mike’s.
