FERFRANS developed the Special Operations Assault Rifle (SOAR) to answer the operational requirements of specialized operating units then, now and in the future . Due largely to the limited resources of the Philippines, abundance of the M16A1 rifles in the inventory and troop familiarity, it was advantageous to use the M16A1 as a platform for modification. The FERFRANS SOAR incorporates modifications and improvements to the M16A1, A2, M4 that will among other things, ensure enhanced reliability, accuracy, firepower, ergonomics / man machine interface, a reduced cyclic rate, parts longevity and increased service life. The objective of the SOAR, among others, is to increase effective firepower as a force multiplier. This was achieved with the proprietary rate reduction system/ independent sear disconnector that reduced the rate of automatic fire by 200 to 250 rounds per minute. The operator has full control of the weapon in full auto fire, increasing accuracy and firepower. As early as 2008, the SOAR-P was developed to answer the need for “over the beach” operations. Several models were also developed and put into production, PDW, Mid-length carbines, and the HVLAR. The latest addition is the Special Operations Adaptive Combat Rifle.
Due to the relationship that FERFRANS has with its customers, operational requirements are discussed beyond weapon systems, therefore in an effort to support the law enforcement and military operators FERFRANS supplies among other products, specialized communication equipment, ballistic vest, tactical gear, ammunition, optical sights, scopes, night vision equipment, suppressors and other specialized equipment requested by the customer. FERFRANS also provides custom products that will meet customer’s need. In the year 2006, FERFRANS was awarded the contract to refurbish the M14’s rifles that were out of commission and refurbished almost a thousand M16A1s that were decommissioned and ready for destruction. This UC contract is to upgrade and convert the M16A1 that were not functional to specialized M4’s.Claim this company account
