Welcome to AFM.
- 2/13/14 - AFM is evolving. We are in the process of completely changing the way the AR15/M16/M4 series of weapon systems are manufactured. We are on the road to 100% in house manufacturing. We are increasing the quality of material selection, heat treating those materials and utilizing enhanced precision in manufactruring and assembly technology. We are moving in the direction of discarding any remnants of cookie cutter type manufacturing. Our next generation of weapon systems will resemble custom style firearms vs mass produced lower end product.
Receivers ard charging handles are being prototyped from forged billet blocks.
Barrels will be enhanced with new linings,
Fire control parts will be machined from tool steel billet stock, wire EDM cut, heat treated for a lifetime of service life and then Ion Bond Diamond Black finished.
Bolts, carriers and extractors will be manufactured from tool steel, heat treated and Ion Bond Diamond Black finished..
All pins and detents will be manufactured in house from tool steel or other materials to prolong and enhance service life with hand fitting with finishing that will be able to achieve operation under very harsh conditions.
Spring technology is being enhanced for a lifetime of service.
Gas blocks will be 4150 CMV or tool steel, pinned on and heat treated to last far longer than comercial set screwed variations.
Our 4 rail free float fore ends will come in any length and available in aluminum alloy, stainless steel or titanium alloy. All will have finishes that can withstand salt water and very harsh conditions.
We will be introducing a highly adjustable retractable butt stock assembly that can be tailored to varying situations and weapon configurations. It will be all metal and a precision operating mecanism strengthening the weapon system as a whole. A removable adjustable cheek piece with precise and positive marked settings for repeatability will be standard.
