DefenseReview (DR) received a quick heads up today about ZRODELTA’s acquisition of War Sport Manufacturing, maker of the famed LVOA (Low Visibility Operations Application) combat/tactical AR carbines and SBR’s (Short Barreled Rifles), from our friend Mike Semanoff. ZRODELTA (pronounced “zero delta”) originally comes from the motorcyle racing (or, racing motorcycle) industry, and has since developed into quite the manufacturer of tactical firearms/shooting accessories and optics.
According to the company’s website, ZERODelta started as an “aluminum foundry manufacturing machined components for racing motorcycles in 1960”. Since then, they’ve “grown [their] ISO 9001:2008 certified U.S. facility to over 66,000 square feet, dozens of precision CNC lathes and mills, fully-automated Laser Cutter, CNC Press Brake, fabrication capabilities, and full CAD/CAM engineering facilities to service a wide range of products and a wide variety of customers and industries. [Their] coatings shop, Coating Specialists, was formed recently to fulfill [their] customer needs in Cerakote, hydrographics, powder coating and other processes.
So, it would appear that ZRODELTA is well suited to take War Sport over and into its next phase. Anyway, the ZRO Delta press release below contains the relevant info about the acquisition.
“For Immediate Release – Lubbock, TX – ZRODELTA is pleased to announce the acquisition of War Sport Manufacturing of Eagle Springs, NC.
ZRODELTA is a leader in the field of precision firearms and accessories, employing patented technologies that improve the modularity, accuracy, and performance of a wide spectrum of OEM products throughout the small arms industry. The Acquisition of War Sport Manufacturing increases ZRODeltas capabilities in producing large quantities of high quality barrels and streamlines R&D through the use of their world-class metallurgy laboratory.
“Our motto is “The Foundation for Accuracy” and we don’t use the term ‘Accuracy’ casually” Said ZRO’s founding partner, John Birk, “To realize accuracy in a final product and to maintain consistency from product to product, a company must have unparalleled discipline, professionalism, and organizational control built into every aspect of its operational processes.”
ZRO’s recent acquisition with Critical Capabilities has increased the reach and breadth of the company’s capabilities within the OEM market space and the acquisition of War Sport Manufacturing ensures the demand of high quality products will be met. These acquisitions also support ZRODelta’s line of firearms including several models and calibers ranging from 9mm to 6.5 Creedmoor. Look for these new offerings to be on display at Shot Show 2018. Booth #15834.
ZRODelta is a U.S. based manufacturer of scope mounts, tripods, and other precision shooting accessories best known for its DLOC scope mounts, HEAD-S tripod shooting platform, and Cowl Induction Muzzle Break. ZRODelta’s recent acquisition of Critical Capabilities and War Sport Manufacturing has expanded its ability to provide high quality parts to large OEM, military, and retail customers across the world.”
