Washoe County (NV) Sheriff’s Office Selects American Defense Mfg. UIC Uppers

New Berlin, WI. July 2019 – American Defense Manufacturing (ADM) is pleased to announce the Washoe County (NV) Sheriff’s Office SWAT has selected the UIC Mod 1 LE 10.5” upper assembly as upgrades to their official SWAT rifle. Washoe County Sheriff’s Office provides law enforcement services for the unincorporated area of Washoe County with approximately 412 commissioned personnel. The highly-trained, dedicated SWAT team routinely respond to situations such as barricaded subjects, entry into high risk locations, and other situations that require such tactical support.

The American Defense Mfg UIC Mod 1 LE 10.5” complete upper provides premium components and exceptional performance that include high-quality Rosco® manufactured barrels. The 9” MLOK handguard is designed to provide a stable mounting platform for front iron sights, and MLOK slots to add additional equipment such as lasers, lights and clip-on night-vision devices. These ADM uppers come complete with a premium bolt carrier group, Magpul® MBUS Pro iron sights, and Radian Weapons® Raptor Charging Handle.

“We have chosen the American Defense upper receiver for the Washoe County Sheriff’s Office SWAT team for several reasons. First, the reliability of the platform is second to none. I personally have used their rifles and have had zero issues after thousands of rounds. Second, the accuracy of these rifles has been amazing from round 1 to round counts in the tens-of-thousands.” Said Deputy Daniel Bales of Washoe County Sheriff’s Office.

American Defense Mfg is committed to supporting agencies beyond the sale by providing immediate, temporary replacement of any American Defense Mfg rifle used in a critical incident and taken out of service for evidentiary purposes. American Defense’s “Ready Reserve” Program provides immediate, temporary replacement of any ADM rifle that is destroyed in the line of duty in order to reduce department disruption and maintain 100% stock in the department’s armory.

Delivery of the UIC Mod 1 LE uppers was recently fulfilled. For more information on American Defense optical, illumination, and target acquisition device mounting solutions, or premium ambidextrous firearms, please visit our website at
