At Rathbone Precision Metals, Inc., our expertise with cold draw die design enable us to create unique profiles for difficult to manufacture parts. This cocking hammer, used in a firearm application has many critical requirements. We designed a die that formed the tight corners and fillet radii to within exacting ± .002″ tolerances and the serrations in such fine detail that the need for secondary machining operations was eliminated. Working with 4140 Steel, we control the decarburization in accordance with the customer’s requirements.

We produce this 1.400″ high, .900″ wide profile with an 80 Ra finish and quality check it for dimensional accuracy.
