American Defense MFG was founded with an idea and hard work. What developed was the QD Auto Lock System. All American Defense MFG products are 100 percent designed and built in the U.S.A. All of our products are designed by shooters with one goal, Customer Satisfaction. With a full line of optic and accessory mounting solutions that is constantly improving and expanding, we took our design and manufacturing capabilities to the next level. For 2015, we are proud to introduce The Universal Improved Carbine, a line of AR-15 pattern rifles redesigned from the ground up. With fully ambidextrous controls and overbuilt components, no detail was overlooked, not one short cut was taken. The UIC is Intentionally Superior.
