    Press Release From Anvil Arms Comment
    Gregory Morris, 5/7/09 8:58:54 am
    "We can't get enough in to build rifles... so let's make 'em!"

    Anvil Arms is pleased to announce the formation of a new company, Anvil Manufacturing. Anvil Arms will continue to manufacture premium quality AR15 type weapons in both custom and standard configurations while Anvil Manufacturing will begin providing premium quality components for the AR15 family of weapons.

    Anvil Manufacturing has contracted with one of the premier machine shops in the country to act as our manufacturing facility. This shop is fully ISO/TS 16949:2002 compliant, uses state of the art air purification systems for employee and machine health and maintains a “No floor dry” policy to keep the facility and equipment clean, maintained and well organized.

    The CNC machine list is impressive and includes 4 multi-station Hydromat machines, 75 Screw machines ranging from very small to huge, 22 Turning and milling machines and a vast array of highly accurate technical inspection equipment for the ultimate in quality control.

    Our in house staff includes mechanical engineers, metallurgists, heat treating and dedicated quality control specialists. This, combined with the above noted machines and our highly skilled operators and in house heat treating facility ensures we have the ultimate in quality control.

    The first product we will be bringing to the AR market is going to be complete Bolt Carrier Assemblies. By the close of 2009 we will have produced in excess of 150,000 units. The first of these will be available starting July 25th, 2009. These will not be just any bolt carrier assemblies, these will be the very best production units available. In most cases the tolerances allowed by the Mil-Spec have been cut in half requiring our product to be even more stringently made and inspected. Below is a short list of just some of the things we are doing to insure the best possible product.

    This project alone represents an initial investment in machines and tooling of 4.8 Million Dollars. Only the very best, most accurate machines and cutting tools are being used. Cutting tool replacement cycles have been scheduled to be shortened from normal industry standards to help insure that all tools maintain the intended sharpness and dimensions.

    Bolt materials will be either Carpenter 158 or 9310. Both will be available to the client. Carpenter 158 is a small up-charge. (Most all US made commercial bolts are made from 8620 steel, 9310 is far superior, Carpenter 158 is Mil-Spec)
    • ALL (100%) of the bolts will be Magnetic Particle Inspected as per Mil-Spec.
    • All Bolts will be shot peened to relieve stress.
    • All Bolts will feature an undercut of 0.020” on the one locking lug directly opposed to the extractor slot. This has been shown to relieve the stress on the two locking lugs next to the extractor slot and greatly extends bolt life.
    • All Bolt Carriers will be hard chromed inside the bolt bore per Mil-Spec.
    • All Gas Keys will be internally hard chromed per Mil-Spec.
    • We are making our own certified grade 8 bolts for the gas key. These bolts will feature extra aggressive knurling to help provide a better contact area for the staking operation.
    • Gas Key bolts will also have high temperature scotch grip pre-applied to the threads to help insure they do not ever come loose.


    3 different bolt carrier assemblies will be offered, all at the same price.
    • The standard M16 carrier will be available for those with a need for full automatic capability.
    • A standard “cut back” semi-automatic carrier for those wanting a traditional semi-automatic carrier.
    • The “Anvil Carrier” This carrier is intended to address the needs of those individuals that want the extra weight of the full auto carrier but do not want any of the possible legal ramifications of having a full auto carrier in their weapon. To accomplish this we simply take off 10% of the bottom portion of the carrier in the critical area and slant the very bottom slightly to make this carrier 100% guaranteed not to be visually confused with a full auto carrier and 100% never able to activate the auto sear, but at the same time, maintain almost all of the weight of the full auto carrier. We all know the weapon functions better with the heavier carrier, now you can have the proper weight and be 100% without any legal worries. This is soon going to be come “The” semi automatic carrier. This is just a short list of the improvements and quality concerns we are addressing. A more thorough list and technical data sheet is available.

    Introductory MSRP is going to be $140 for the assembly with the 9310 bolt and $15 additional for the Carpenter for a total of $155.
