Small Arms & Field Service Gages
The Small Arms and Gages IPT is the newest focus factory in RIA-JMTC. The arsenal produced similar products over 25 years ago. In November 2007, a three year commitment established RIA-JMTC as organic source for small arms components. The strategic objective is to create a sustainable level of small arms parts production to facilitate a rapid response to surges and increased requirements of critical parts in support of the military's operational commitment.
Using Lean Six Sigma principals, the Small Arms and Gages focus factory recaptured un-used space and will have the new area in full production in the fall of 2009.
