FIREARMS MANUFACTURING & MACHINING

FIREARM INDUSTRY SERVICES

Firearms range from small handguns to large weapons used by the military and other specialists. As such, they require many different parts and pieces.

We work with businesses in the firearms industry to produce the parts they require, however, we do not do assembly. The industry also requires a number of other special products, including tooling, triggers, safety equipment, fixtures and lower/upper receivers. Our trained experts can assist clients with many of these needs.

TYPICAL FIELDS OF APPLICATION

Here are a few of the typical applications of parts we create for the firearms industry.

icon

Small, Vital Parts

The small parts of the safety and the trigger are vital to firearms and safe use. Without these parts working as they should, the firearm could injure the user or others nearby.

icon

Precise & Durable Casings

The casings of every firearm must be made from strong materials, however must be exact to blueprint specifications.

Produce Prototypes Rapidly

Rapid Prototyping

In order to create new products, firearm manufacturers often need to design and create a series of prototypes. We can rapidly create the base prototype and subsequent versions until the final product is ready for mass production.

BENEFITS FOR FIREARMS INDUSTRY

Our specialized services provide the firearms industry with several benefits.

icon

Clean, Crisp Lines

The parts we cut have very clean, crisp lines without any damage or hanging pieces of material. This means they smoothly fit into the firearm, its clip, and any other accessories used.

icon

Runs of Various Sizes

Firearm Manufacturing often needs both very small and very large production runs. Our machines run 24 hours, so we can meet any of these needs.

Damage-Free Machining

We use Wire EDM to create triggers, fixtures and lower/upper receivers that have no burrs or other damage on the machined part.

Wire EDM is Not Just for Tooling

Jan 30, 2017

You can think of wire EDM as the non-contact, 21st Century version of the fretsaw. A fretsaw is used to cut complex shapes from blocks of wood. The key to its versatility is the blade, which is essentially just an abrasive wire. Being thin and able to cut on all sides, the woodworker can turn it easily to follow…
