Firearm manufacturing is a competitive, demanding industry. Stress Outdoor® has
tailored its integrated design, analysis and custom testing services to help manufacturers
leverage advanced engineering concepts and tools to develop lower cost, safer and
better performing firearms and firearm accessories.
A successful hunt depends on maintaining a clear line-of-sight to the target. That view is often aided by the use of a scope or a pair of binoculars. The optical elements used in the design and layout in such visual aids dictates what the hunter sees, and does not
see. Beyond a quality image, hunters also expect their gear to be built to withstand
whatever nature has in store. The dynamic loading that occurs in optics used in various
calibers of firearms and in cross bolt mechanisms can have a long term detrimental
effect on optics and the support structure. Stress Outdoor® has the ability to quantify
these loads and provide them as inputs to the optics designers to satisfy the needs of
the system. The engineers and polymer scientists at Stress Outdoor® have extensive
experience in optical layout, mechanical design and composites allowing us to work with the client to develop the next generation of optics ready for the outdoors.
