Metal Forging

Of all the ways to shape metal, the only one to shape it while making it stronger and more durable is forging. That’s what makes our firearms known for their strength and durability: our expertise in forging tough, long-lasting components from:

  • Carbon steel
  • Stainless steel
  • Alloy steel
  • Aluminum
  • Scandium

We can run anything from small parts of a few ounces to components up to 20 pounds — within an envelope of roughly 15 by 15 by 15 inches. 

Our drop hammers range from 1,500 to 5,000 pounds, and we have a 1,500-ton press specially equipped for aluminum and scandium. Our forging operation is supported by a variety of mechanical presses for hot and cold trimming, and complete in-house tooling and die-forming capabilities.
