    An Explanation of What SAAMI Is and Does

    We often see references to SAAMI, or SAAMI Specs, but how many people really know what SAAMI is? Here is an explanation of SAAMI history, and it's role in the firearms industry. The Author: R.G. Bimson / SAAMI Director of Technical Affairs, Technical Advisor.


    Hope this helps.
