How this new model came to be…
It was inspired by the Brookfield Precision
Tool special production run of light weight steel mounts for the
special forces in the 1980’s
We had been
loaned an originalBrookfield Light-weight mount several weeks before
the 101st Airborne called expressing their interest in a lighter steel
mount. We had the interest and now they had an urgent need so we rose
to the challenge to expedite it since their unit was about to deploy in
a few weeks and we didn’t want to let our brave troops down.
We did our
initial design overnight and had the first prototypes for heat-treat
and testing in 2 days. We were cautious in where and how much material
to remove to avoid compromising the over-all strength of the new
light-weight mount. After many design revisions and prototypes and a
few 18hr work days, we had the right balance and production began. Mike
Sadlak and his dedicated precision tool-makers worked tirelessly
through many nights to deliver the finished mounts to the 101st
Airborne on time.
It was a proud
day for the employees at Sadlak Industries LLC. We thank the 101st and
our military for the opportunity to serve them for a change!
