Universal™ Weapons Rack – UWR® Storage System

In Garrison. In Transport. In Theater.

Versatile, flexible, and made in the USA, the Universal™ Weapons Rack (UWR®) was created with one goal in mind — to be the best weapons storage system for operational readiness. To meet this goal, the UWR has been field tested extensively by all branches of the military and exceeds OPNAVINST 5530.13C and AR 190-11, MARCORSYSCOM, and TACOM standards. Designed to promote increased readiness for users, the UWR can store most optics and accessories completely assembled and weapons zeroed, reducing the need to transfer weapons to a different rack in the case of deployment.

Perforated doors and sides allow for quick and accurate weapons inventory, while the UWR’s adjustable brackets keep weapons securely in place during transport to protect from movement, vibration, shock, and abrasion. The UWR’s fully retractable doors allow for smaller aisles in your space, opening room for additional inventory. Individual units can be stacked and ganged together without welding or chains or mounted on a high-density mobile storage system to conserve even more space.

Weapons Cabinet Sizes

Available in a variety of sizes to accommodate weapons of various lengths and types, Spacesaver’s UWR® was created with the understanding that the military doesn’t use a one-size-fits-all approach within their armories.

  • Width: 42”, 22” (Mini)
  • Depth: 16”, 24" (Select sizes)
  • Height: 18”, 35”, 45”, 51", 61”, 76”, 84”

Weapon Storage Options

From the M4 to the M249, ammo to suppressors, and handguns to Pelican™ Cases, we have created standard solutions to accommodate whatever your armory can come up with. And in the rare case we don’t have a solution for your specific need, custom options are available.

  1. Barrel Supports - A wide variety of barrel supports are available to accommodate virtually any military weapon type.
  2. Support Rails - The versatile powder-coated support rail mounts in the weapon racks, using interlocking keyhole slots.
  3. Universal Base & Stock Cups – Mount inside the cabinet to support a myriad of weapons and allow user to reconfigure layout offering the flexibility and configurability
  4. Bin Systems - The bin system may be used to store gear, optics, ammo clips, ammo boxes, or spare barrels.
  5. Pelican™ Case Dividers - Vertical divider that can be used to separate items stored in weapons rack cabinets.

Weapon Capacity

Expanding an arms room may not be an option, but you can create additional space by optimizing your storage solution. Each standard 45” UWR can hold up to 15 weapons with optics, while the 84” cabinet can fit up to 30 rifles. Combine these with Spacesaver’s High-Density Mobile System, and eliminate wasted aisle space and greatly increase armory capacity.

Purchasing Options


While multiple weapons racks have been assigned NSNs, the UWR was the first to be assigned at the request of the military. Plus, the UWR is the only weapons rack with NSN-assigned accessories, meaning all components can be purchased using Class IX funds.
