MEC-GAR is a privately held family-run business that was founded by Mr. Edoardo Racheli in 1965. Today Mec-Gar has become to be known worldwide as the largest producer of fine quality rifle and pistol magazines.
Our state-of- the- art stamping facility and tool shop, unlike many other manufacturers, are 100% dedicated to the manufacturing of firearm magazines. MEC-GAR's distinct advantage is as a "one-stop-shopping-center" for technical design assistance, prototypes, tool design and development, metal stamping and assembly.
Our manufacturing operations are housed in three modern facilities with more than 50,000 square feet Iocated in both Gardone Val Trompia and Gussago in the italian province of Brescia. Both Iocations are easily accessible from airports and state highways.

Our secondary in house capabilities include a state-of-the-art multi-modular heat treatment installation working in a controlled atmosphere, a vacuum vapor degreasing system, a superior mass metal finishing department along with two automatic lapping machines.
