Artur Tests SEI Steyr AUG Muzzle Brake

Check out this great video showing how effective the SEI Good Iron Muzzle Brake is on the Steyr Aug-Z A3.  Artur is shooting .223 Remington ammo in the video.

Smith Enterprise on Display

Look at this great picture of Ron, Andy, and Caesar that was taken by Gary Paul Johnston of Shooting Illustrated Magazine.  Ron is holding the SEI Crazy Horse M21A5 with a Leupold Scope.  Everything on the weapon is SEI-made.  Andy, who is an Iraq War Vet, and Cesar are holding receivers SEI makes for the M14.  On the table are Vortex's for the M2 .50 Cal and various other weapons.  You can't get any products better than these for your military and civilian weapons.

Ron Smith is Now Part of TACOM "Dime Club"

When Ron Smith went to TACOM earlier in 2011 he was tested.  He had to shoot a dime at 110 yards.  This is very difficult to do.  Not that many people are part of the "Dime Club" accept for the guys at TACOM.  So on the second shot, Ron nails the dime at 110 yard with M118LR ammunition shooting a TRW that Ron dialed in there and was giving them some trouble.  The ding on the rim is from when the dime hit the ground.  Ron was there with Lee Emerson, Doug Carlstrom, and Mike Petersen.

Experienced Security Trainer Gives the Good Iron Muzzle Brake Rave Reviews

We recently were sent a video about our M4/M16 Good Iron Muzzle Brake from Steve Cooper from Paladin Training...  We appreciate email like this and hope you enjoy watching the video.

Here is the email:

Sir or Madame,

I recently installed an SE muzzle brake on a 16” 5.56 AR and wanted you to know how pleased I am with the way it performs.  Muzzle rise and felt recoil are noticeably dampened, but w/o any apparent increase in sound or back/side blast to my surprise.  Everyone comments that it’s the least obnoxious brake they’ve seen.

 You might be interested in a video of the brake in use here:

I rarely write letters of this sort, but then I’m rarely 100% satisfied with what I buy these days, as I am w/ your muzzle brake.

Thank you.

Steve Cooper, Director of Training

See Our Precision Manufacturing Equipment Make Vortexes Our of Barstock

In this video you can see this machine cut away from barstock steel in order to form the grooves on the Vortex Flash Suppressor.  As you can see, this is no easy task and requires a great deal of precision.

In this video you can see this machine cut away from barstock steel in order to hollow out the coupler portion of the Vortex .50 Cal Flash Suppressor.  As you can see, this is also no easy task and requires a great deal of precision.

MK46 Locking Collar (Patent Pending)

Below are some pictures that better explain our MK46 light machine gun locking collar.  In the pictures below it is a silver color.  However, our finished product is the same color as the Vortex.  The locking collar help stabilize the flash suppressor when a high rate of fire is used.  It adds support to the Vortex and is a very helpful addition to the SEI weapon-related patented arsenal.

Lee Ermerson from TACOM Writes about SEI's Involvement in the MK 14 MOD 2

Lee Emerson from TACOM made a post on the EBR SOPMODs forum discussing SEI's recent purchase from CRANE for 245 each of MK 14 Mod 2 components.  Here is what Lee had to say:

"I've been in contact recently with NSWC Crane and Smith Enterprise, Inc. regarding a new project, the Mk 14 Mod 2. Here's what I've been told.

The first two protoype Mk 14 Mod 2 rifles were built in April 2011 at NSWC Crane using existing M14 SSR rifles. Another prototype in final configuration was finished this month. The Mk 14 Mod 2 is intended for Navy Expeditionary Combat Command units.

Per discussion with Ron Smith, Smith Enterprise, Inc. has been awarded a contract to supply 245 sets of the following SEI parts within two months to NSWC Crane in support of the Mk 14 Mod 2: extended bolt lock, direct connect Vortex (R) flash hider, gas cylinder, gas piston, gas cylinder lock wrench, and cleaning rod guide sized for the direct connect flash hider.

In addition to the parts supplied by Smith Enterprise, Inc., the Mk 14 Mod 2 will be assembled with the Sage International, Ltd. M14ALCS/PMRI-H stock with gray anodizing, black hand guard and vertical butt adjustment, AN/PVS-27 night scope, Nightforce NXS 3.5-15X day scope, Nightforce ultralight 1.125 " rings, X-treme Shooting Products, LLC steel trigger shoe and Atlas bipod (model BT10). These rifles will be built on existing Navy M14 SSR rifles. The M14 SSR has a NSWC Crane design scope mount. Thus, there will be no iron sights for the Mk 14 Mod 2. Dave Armstrong, NSWC Crane, informed me that the heavyweight barrel will be retained. The weight of the Mk 14 Mod 2 is in excess of 13 pounds without the magazine, optics or bipod."
