Unified Weapon Systems Inc.

Unified Weapon Systems (UWS) is a licensed U.S. weapons manufacturer and registered exporter of armament and munitions. UWS integrates the latest technologies in weapon designs to produce the most advanced battle rifles available today.

Located in Tampa Florida, UWS is capable of producing over 5,000 rifles per month, with the ability to increase production capability to meet contract requirements. All rifles are currently 100% manufactured in the U.S.A. and built utilizing technologies and patents licensed from our manufacturing partners. Our experience and unique relationships within the weapons industry affords us the ability to choose and integrate the best solutions available in the field of modern combat weapons design.

Our Weapon Systems are based on the M4/M16 rifle design/platform. With an estimated 8 million firearms in circulation around the world, the M4 is one of the most common, versatile platforms used in both military / law enforcement and civilian applications.

UWS has exclusive manufacturing contracts and rights to patents of several companies, making our design a unique, versatile, and highly capable combat rifle. The ubiquity of this weapon platform ensures that it will be supportable and relevant for many years to come due to having:

  • 100% parts interchangeability between rifles of the same caliber. (UCR-UCR or UPR-UPR)
  • 62% parts interchangeability between rifles of different calibers. (UPR-UCR)

This means less inventory of replacement parts, similar training for police or military personnel because the operation of both rifles is identical and also same training for armorers / technicians that will be doing maintenance of both caliber rifles.

Our team consists of industry leading manufacturers and weapons experts with facilities totaling well over 150,000 square feet of manufacturing space, 61 horizontal CNC machines, 27 vertical CNC machines, 15 swiss turns, 8 water jets, robotic-automated anodizing lines, 500+ employees, ISO 9001:2008, AS9100:2004, ANSI/J, STD-001, IPC-A-610 and IPC-A-620 certifications among others.

our mission

We believe that defending your country from a foreign or domestic enemy is your right and it is crucial to your national security. We have been researching the needs of military forces around the world and found that most of them relate to updating or replacing their aging service rifles.

It took us 4 years to develop a rifle that will meets those requirements. We are constantly trying to improve the current technologies and develop new ones.

During the design phase we took into consideration the necessity to replace their inventory and the need for modern technology and future upgradability with lower budgets.

We also took into consideration the future operator. We used average soldier biometrics and ergonomics and their need for a lightweight and small reliable rifle regardless of caliber.

Future operation scenarios are very important, so we considered local geographies and the topographies of current conflict scenarios; consequently, we developed a rifle that works flawlessly in sand, water and mud predominant environments. Whether your forces are deployed for "over the beach ", jungle, desert or tundra operations, they can rest assure their rifle will always work properly.

Lastly, we understood the need for training. With our universal platform we guarantee that the training for your forces will be efficient, focused and short.

So when someone asks us why we do this, we simply answer... because we can do it right!
