CNC Machining of a Steel Trigger for the Military Industry

Demonstrating our ability to produce precision machined parts on very tight schedules, Schmid Tool and Engineering recently completed the manufacture of a high volume production run of steel triggers for the military firearm industry.

The contract called for a two week delivery of 72,000 steel triggers that met multiple military specifications. Fabricated from 8620 steel, our highly trained machinists were able to design the investment casting mold, machining fixtures, and gaging required for the streamlined milling operations used to fabricate the 15." x 2" x 0.3" part. Secondary operations involved grinding and heat treating along with application of a manganese phosphate coating and a black finish. All parts met with the strict ±.0005" tolerances required by the customer's specification.
