Swiss Products began in 1999 when Pierre St.Marie and Jack Sturgess formed a Montana Partnership.
Pierre supplied the concepts for a number of Swiss k31 rifle accessories, Jack fabricated the prototypes, Pierre then took them to the SP Range for field testing and, if the accessory proved itself over a spectrum of rifles, it was put into production.
A Montana Hanshake is all they required to seal the deal and Swiss Products was born in Kalispell Montana.That began a 20 year partnership with each of them performing their part of the agreement. The first year the accessories were to referred to as "St. Marie" rifle accessories. By the year 2000 they agreed to renaming their "retirement business" Swiss Products. As it happened, their "retirement business" grew a bit bigger than anticipated.
Their premise was to design and produce accessories for the Swiss Rifles that facilitated pure enjoyment of the shooters. Because these rifles are of the collectible bent, Pierre was determined that these accessories did not require any physical change to the rifles themselves.
