Primary Weapons Systems
Primary Weapons Systems (PWS) was formed in 2008 as a rifle component company and has since grown to be one of the largest firearms manufacturers in the Northwest. PWS initially made firearm accessories and compensators, but quickly moved into firearm manufacturing as they developed their PWS Long-Stroke Piston System which takes the operating system from Kalashnikov’s AK design and merges it with Stoner’s AR platform giving a hybrid rifle to shooters looking for a low-maintenance yet reliable and accurate firearm.
PWS manufactures AR-15s in 223 Wylde and 300BLK, as well as DPMS .308 pattern builds in both 308 and 6.5 Creedmoor- all with the long-stroke piston operating system. Also manufactured by Primary Weapons Systems are lightweight buffer tubes, steel body buffers, KeyMod accessories and a wide selection of compensators for firearms both piston driven and direct impingement.
