An AR-Rest is Born
The journey to make the AR-Rest.LIGHTWEIGHT starts off at a place called ADR Hydrocut in Morrisville, NC. They cut out the frame from 3/16" thick aluminum using a water jet. A water jet uses a 50,000 psi stream of water and abrasive to cut the frame of the AR-Rest.LIGHTWEIGHT from the 3/16" thick 6061 aluminum. The water jet is a process that doesn't generate heat so the properties of the billet aluminum are maintained.
We then take the parts and bring them back to our shop where they are tumbled to remove any burrs. We then take the batch of AR-Rests to Triangle Coatings in Raleigh, NC for powder coat. Powder coating is a process where the parts are given an electrical charge then sprayed with a dry powder that has the opposite charge. The difference in electrical charges makes the powder stick to the metal. The parts go in an oven that melts the powder, resulting in a very robust and consistent finish. This means your Montie Gear AR-Rest.LIGHTWEIGHT is ready for a lifetime of use.
After the powder coating process, the stainless steel quick-release pin and it's nylon coated stainless steel lanyard are installed using a high strength Loctite to ensure the threading is secure. A high strength instant adhesive is then used to secure the EDPM rubber pads to the resting area of the AR-Rest.
Once all those steps are complete, your Montie Gear AR-Rest.LIGHTWEIGHT is ready for decades of use. We really mean it when we designed this product for you to pass along to your grand children.
