Military & Firearm Castings
Military vehicles, gear, and firearms must function properly, often through millions of cycles and in some of the harshest, most extreme conditions on Earth. Mil-spec regulations require parts and components that go into military equipment to meet very tight tolerances and high quality standards.
Avalon Precision Metalsmiths produces precise Military and Defense castings via investment casting. Our ISO 9001:2008 and ITAR certified processes enable us to create precision castings that meet mil-spec standards and provide the durability and performance required. We are currently manufacturing for various military and firearm OEMs. These parts include:
- Joysticks for drone planes/UAVs
- Gun triggers, hammers & sights
- Trigger guards
- Bolt catches
- Bolt carriers
- Selector levers
- Pistol grips
- Spare parts
- and much more
In 2016, Avalon added a 1911 gun frame to its selection of available parts. The 1911 frame is designed to enable gun OEMs to machine the part to their own specifications. See additional details about the launch of this frame at Shooting, Hunting and Outdoor Trade Show (SHOT Show).
We work with a range of materials, including stainless steel, carbon steel, tool steels, aluminum, bronze, and specialty alloys. We offer low and high-volume production and prototyping services, and are familiar with all applicable military and commercial specifications.
We provide NDT services, including x-ray and magnetic particle inspection, to ensure that every part meets our customers’ unique requirements. We also offer numerous secondary services, including machining, grinding and polishing, to add further value to our products.
