The presence of plastics in modern firearms has become common in the twenty-first century. With most guns being mass-manufactured for durability and reliability, it is not a surprise that the benefits of using plastic components has not been overlooked by companies like Heckler and Koch and Remington. Whether your concern is stability against solvents and harsh weather conditions, or the comfort of a custom-molded plastic stock, Marlborough Plastics has the equipment and know-how to get the job done.
Stock, sight or internal bolt guide, modern gun manufacturers use plastic in almost every conceivable way to increase the efficiency of their firearms. The benefits are evident, as wooden and metal gun components are prone to cracking, erosion and fatigue in ways that plastics simply aren't. Injection molded plastic stocks and other gun components are superior for their durability and easy maintenance or replacement in the event of wear.
Synthetic gun components are more practical than their wooden and metal counterparts because they are more cost-effective to manufacture and have enhanced resistance to wear. Weapons with plastic frames and trigger guards also become more cost-effective in the long run, because broken parts can easily be replaced at a reasonable price. Compared to replacing the mahogany stock on your rifle, the plastic option will save you an arm and a leg.
