March 15, 2019 (Naples, FL)—Azimuth Technology (AZT) is honored to support the NRA and will be showcasing their AZTP-22 family line of Ruger 10/22® rifle components at the 2019 NRA Annual Meeting in Indianapolis, IN. Azimuth Technology is a leading shooting industry contract manufacturer of precision OEM firearm components and aftermarket accessories.
AZT custom engineers and utilizes state-of-the-art CNC machines and other precision equipment as well as selecting only high-grade materials to manufacture the finest precision-perfected components available:
AZTP-22™ Receiver: CNC milled from solid 7075 billet, with critical tolerances manufactured to +/- .0005” at the barrel to receiver mating surfaces, and up to +/- .002” of true parallel for the receiver walls and the functional moving parts in the receiver – paramount factors for match-grade accuracy.
AZTP-22™ Bolt assembly: The bolt assembly rides on TWO bearing surfaces, not just one. This eliminates canting sideways. It’s also milled from 17-4 stainless, heat treated then finished with a high hardness, low coefficient of friction coating. There is a perfect 90-degree mating of the bolt face to barrel and cartridge head at close-up and ignition.
AZTP-22™ Barrels: Each barrel chamber is precision reamed to be in perfect alignment with the centerline of the bore. This is essential in a rimfire, lead-projectile bore. Then each barrel is turned to be perfectly concentric in outside and inside diameters, maintaining concentricity error values of .002" or less. This dampens the natural harmonics when the round is fired. Lastly, each barrel is precision lapped using the HydraLap™ lapping procedure. This proprietary lapping and honing process removes the irregularities in the lands and grooves left over from the rifling process. It avoids the laborious hand-lapping technique that relies on human feel. Each land and groove all emerge identical in the finished product for match-grade accuracy.
