Magazines & Firearm Components

In August 2012, Ideal Small Arms commenced manufacturing components in Langwarrin, Victoria, Australia.

Ideal Small Arms developed into a specialist components production engineering business, able to efficiently deliver production runs of 100 units or more.  Ideal Small Arms have CNC machining capability to manufacture complicated component design.

Ideal Small Arms constantly review and upgrade their designs and tooling to take advantage of the latest manufacturing developments.  They experiment with durability of different materials, look at weight reduction of components and operating conditions.  The list of factors which affect component development continues to grow.  Research and development is the key to improvement. 

Ideal Small Arms do alot of testing during production and assembly to ensure all components function perfectly.

CAD - Computer Aided Design

Advancements in computer technology, programming and prototyping has opened up a world of opportunities for rapid design and production of new products.  Ideal Small Arms particularly love 3D printing.   

The most important ability one needs is to never stop learning!  There is new and interesting technology created every year.   Now is a golden age for CAD design and innovation.

As children we watched Neil Armstrong walk on the moon, live on television, in black and white!  Wow!

Technology keeps advancing.

Plastic Injection Moulding

Making plastic tooling and creating plastic components almost from 'thin air' is the best feeling of accomplishment.  A kilogram of plastic can be turned into anything very quickly.  Ideal Small Arms love it.  And volumes ... unlimited!

A majority of Ideal Small Arms' business is now based upon building plastic tooling and volume manufacturing of their own proprietary branded items.

Carbon fibre type plastics are incredibly strong and proving to be an effective alternative to traditional materials.  Mass production is more efficient and cost effective with modern materials.
