Forged Receivers, Frames and Accessories

Our competition only forges gun parts and accessories. At Cerro, not only can we forge high-quality 308 and 223 upper receivers in 7075 aluminum, we can machine them too. Cerro only forges 308 and 223 lower receivers. No machining services are available for lower receivers.

We can also forge accessories such as grip pod legs and we can machine them in-house too.

Cerro has partnered with local anodizing job shops to provide a complete turnkey service on the parts we forge and machine.

Our customers demand a high-quality surface finish. At Cerro, we have procedures in place to eliminate scuffing, nicks and dings to ensure a high-quality finish whether we just forge parts for our customers or provide a turnkey service.

A high-quality surface finish begins with proper slug temperature, proper die temperature, proper press strike and proper die lubrication. At Cerro, we have procedures in place to ensure successful results for each of these operations.

A clean workstation and frequent cleaning of the part transfer tubs eliminates the chance for inclusions. Cerro has implemented 5S procedures to ensure work-related cleanliness. We also 100% visually inspect each part and if one of our inspectors notices a blemish; we have buffing and polishing capabilities to remove all minor scuffs and blemishes.

To complement our forging capabilities, we offer in-house billet machining. We can machine parts in ferrous and nonferrous materials up to 10” in diameter. At Cerro Fabricated Products, we’re proud to be a leading supplier of top-quality gun parts to our valued machine shops and OEMs.

If your small arms or related accessories project requires a different aluminum alloy other than 7075, we can also forge parts in 2014 and 6061.

Cerro understands the need to bring new ideas to market quickly. We have in-house tool and die capabilities and in-house heat-treating capabilities too (T4, T6, T73 & T74) ensuring quick lead times on processing parts through our shop.

Cerro’s ISO9001:2015 quality system includes CMM part validation, 3D printing, blue light scanning, simulation software and SolidWorks.
