Firearms Raw Mag Inside Lip

      As Manufactured

Firearms are complex mechanical tools that include multiple wear components and require high-end aesthetic finishes.

The REM® Process (an isotropic superfinishing process) is ideally suited to upgrade both firearm performance and the firearm manufacturing process.  By consistently generating a smooth, low friction surface, the REM Process will improve trigger feel, magazine functionality, and coating adhesion for your firearms.

Additionally, a REM Process Installation is a drop-in, turn-key solution that will simplify your firearms manufacturing process while simultaneously providing an upgrade in product quality.  The REM Process can eliminate abrasive tumbling, blasting and/or hand polishing operations thereby reducing costs and increasing throughput.

With over twenty years of experience in the firearm industry, REM Surface Engineering has the technology and expertise to provide solutions to any firearm finishing challenge.

Common Firearm Applications for the REM Process:

  • Trigger/Internal Components
  • Bolt Carriers
  • Barrels and Barrel Components
  • Magazines
  • Frames/Slides

Component Benefits for Firearm Applications:

  • Improved Slack, Creep, and Stacking
  • Improved Trigger Feel
  • Improved Magazine Performance
  • Improved Coating Adhesion
  • Eliminated Burrs and Sharp Edges
  • Improved Aesthetic Appearance

Production Benefits for Firearm Applications:

  • Eliminate Handwork, Blasting, and Other Manufacturing Steps
  • Improve Finish Consistency and Quality
  • Reduce Cycle Time and Increased Throughput
  • Eliminate Solid Waste Generation from Abrasive Mass Finishing Processes

Common Firearm Alloys REM can Assist with:

  • Carbon Steels
  • Stainless Steels
  • Titanium Alloys
  • Aluminum Alloys
  • Nickel-based Alloys
  • Other Exotic Alloys

Common Firearm Component Forming Methods the REM Process can Improve:
