Lancer Systems Makes Some Awesome AR-15 Accessories
In the tactical market customers often demand the best, either with off-the-shelf complete firearms or with custom builds. Of course, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to assemble an AR from parts, which is ironic as the AR was designed by Eugene Stoner, chief engineer for ArmaLite, which was itself a division of Fairchild Engine & Airplane Corporation.
For anyone who wants the best and most innovative AR parts and rifles available, it makes sense to seek out people who are committed to engineering first and foremost. This is exactly how Lancer Systems operates, as they demonstrated on an extensive tour of their new 78,000-square-foot facility in Quakertown, Pennsylvania.
Lancer Systems is an engineering-driven company that makes ceramic and carbon fiber components for fighter jets and missile systems. They also make advanced fiber-optics control systems and well heads for oil drills, and they are constantly innovating in the use of ceramics, fiber optics, weapon systems, thermoplastics, polymers, carbon fibers, ceramic matrix and compression molding.
While the gun side of their business is a significant portion of what they do, it is not the majority — this actually benefits tactical customers. Lancer brings the technology and knowledge from its other business sectors and applies it to the company’s firearms business in ways no other company can achieve.
