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.
Firearms and bows tend to follow an evolutionary process where changes to platform designs occur over time, rather than “revolutionary” disruptive change. Either of these advancement processes, evolutionary or revolutionary, result in increased risk to the manufacturer. Stress Outdoor® helps manufacturers significantly mitigate risk by using the latest engineering analysis methods integrated with custom designed instrumentation and testing programs to evaluate the fundamental characteristics of a design change, including how manufacturing variability will impact the performance and safety of that design. Whether it is a trigger system, a design change, a material change or component upgrade, the Stress Outdoor® engineering services act as an insurance policy on success by adding significant levels of technical understanding and depth into design performance as well as providing documentation needed to demonstrate that due diligence, if it is ever needed.
