Riley Defense’s Quality Control Process:
At Riley Defense Inc., our process is centered on making certain our parts go through a vigorous and meticulous inspection process. Each major part is tested for its mechanical properties such as hardness, strength, and ductility and then followed by a dimensional inspection with the use of fixtures and in some cases measuring certain components with our CMM equipment.
After the quality control parts process, we start grouping all the mating components, for example labeling and matching every receiver with a trunion and every trunion with a barrel to guarantee that the trunion holes are concentric to the receiver holes which ensures the assembly is straight. We also make sure every barrel has the right amount of interference fit to the trunion to reduce stresses that are induced in the trunion.
It is very important that the trunion is riveted to the receiver first, and then the barrel is pressed into the receiver/trunion assembly. We NEVER use the barrel as a bucking bar, which causes the rivets to eventually move out of place after firing a few hundred rounds of ammunition. After the barrel has been set into the trunion, we populate the sights and gas block and check them with extremely precise lasers. Then it’s on to the assembly lines to attach all other components, such as furniture, trigger components, etc…
Following rifle assembly, five rounds of ammunition are fired to test the rifle for function and operation and then it is on to the quality control department for a thorough cleaning and final inspection before packaging and shipping.
