Revolutionizing Weapons Storage

In the ever-evolving world of military technology, innovation takes precedence. The US Military, which aims to replace the M4 and M249 weapons systems, awarded SIG Sauer the Next Generation Squad Weapon (NGSW) contract to develop the M7 rifle and M250 machine gun in 2022. This program stands to be the most significant small arms contract issued by the US military in the past 65 years, with an expected issuance of 400,000 weapons by 2032.

Spacesaver’s NGSW Support Solutions

Take your armory storage to the next level.

With over a half century of experience in developing high-quality storage for unique applications, Spacesaver was able to quickly address the specific needs for this project by expanding its UWR® product line. First, it became quite evident that two new brackets were needed to aptly store the new arms: one for transport applications and the other for non-transport. Beyond this, we recognized that while our UWR 45” could fit the M250, due to the length of the weapon with its suppressor attached, it would not be optimal for easily loading and unloading without damaging the weapons. Knowing this, our team of engineers developed the UWR 51” cabinet to deliver increased support and security for the M250.
