Connecticut Spring & Stamping (CSS), a manufacturer of precision parts for the medical, aerospace, firearms and defense industries worldwide, announces that it offers prototyping, high-speed progressive die stamping, and short-run die stamping for the firearms industry. The company is also known for providing superior engineering and support services, including making recommendations to improve manufacturability throughout the design and development process.
The company manufactures such critical parts as slide-stop assemblies, interceptor latches, magazine tube assemblies, saddle rings, speed latches, action bars, sights, and receiver end plates. CSS manufactures nearly all of the stampings and all of the springs for the AR15/M16 rifle platform, and also stamps and coils the springs.
“CSS engineering design and prototyping expertise reduces costs early on in the development process, and continues throughout the production of the parts, giving customers long term functionality and manufacturability when in high-volume production,” said Steve Dicke, vice president of sales and marketing at CSS. “We have a federal firearms license (FFL), and our hand-on design team frequently works closely with our customer to design parts that are within a tight tolerance and yet very manufacturable and consistent in the long run.”
CSS uses a proprietary method to replicate the die conditions of fine blank requirements with no edge break, enabling them to run at a higher speed than fine blank stampers, and improving their competitiveness within the firearms industry.
