Military, NATO-Grade Raw Materials


To produce the PVAR rifle and the DGIS Mid-Length rifle, United Defense Manufacturing Corp. uses only the best raw materials to guarantee a “Tier-1” product that meets or exceeds NATO standards. For example, UDMC uses only T6-7075 forgings (aircraft grade) in all its aluminum parts. With UDMC, gas blocks, bolt assemblies, bolts carriers and other steel parts are machined from steel forgings or solid billets rather than from castings in order to guarantee strength and repeatability of dimensions. The small internal parts come from MIM production.

UDMC heat treatment processes are computerized, leaving no room for errors. All major parts are produced from Computerized Numeric Controlled (CNC) milling centers and turning machines with a combination of several processes via 3, 4 and 5-axis CNC’s and, EDM wirecut CNC’s.
