AG Composites uses modern design software from Solidworks and AutoDesk to create Computer Aided Design (CAD) models of every stock we manufacture. AG Composites’ design engineers bring their aerospace industry CAD modeling experience to every stock we design. CAD modeling has many advantages to include:
– Rapid exploration of many design concepts
– Precise modeling of stock inletting and compatibility with popular barrel contours, actions, and bottom metal
– Modeling of mold tooling and machining fixtures
Once AG Composites has a stock design that meets our criteria, the CAD model of the stock serves as the basis for all of the mold tooling and fixtures that are used to manufacture the stock. All AG Composite molds are precision CNC machined from metal to ensure that every one of the thousands of stocks that are produced out of a mold is an accurate reproduction of the original CAD model.
AG Composites uses the highest quality carbon fiber, epoxy, and paint products to manufacture our premium line of composite rifle stocks.
Carbon fiber is used extensively in industries where high performance is a necessity. From modern fighter aircraft to Tour de France winning bicycles to massive wind turbine blades, the incredible strength and amazing light weight of carbon fiber makes it the high performance go-to material. When designed properly, carbon fiber composite parts can offer the strength of steel but at a fraction of the weight.
All AG Composite stocks are made from carefully selected composite materials that have been extensively tested. Our stocks not only offer excellent stiffness and light weight, they are also impervious to environmental factors and will offer predictable, reliable performance for decades.
