Defence & Law Enforcement

RWS GmbH is the reliable partner for law enforcement and military customers in all areas of small caliber ammunition. Since 1886, we have been synonymous with innovation and quality for infantry and law enforcement ammunition as one of the preeminent national and international manufacturers in this segment.

Research, development, innovation – As a passsionate driver of innovation, we aim at assisting our customers in the creation of tailored products, to ensuring greater security in our world. In doing so, we can draw on long-standing experience in the area of research und development. Products such as the 4.6x30 or the first heavy metal-free primer kits speak for themselves when it comes to rigorous quality in development matters.

As a reliable partner known for igniting ideas, we would gladly assist you in the creation of special products or system solutions for firearms and ammunition.


Conventional full metal jacket bullets no longer optimally fulfill the requirements of modern duty ammunition for authorities. Low energy release in the target medium can easily lead to over-penetration of soft targets and thus endanger nearby bystanders. Due to the increased risk of terrorism and willingness to use violence, product offers now require solutions that reliably contain and prevent such situations, whilst simultaneously and significantly reducing the risk of background threats to uninvolved third parties. The products in our ACTION Line offer these solutions – in combination with our patented SINTOX Forensis ignition kit with an absolute minimum of pollutant emissions for the shooter and the possibility of forensic analysis.


DM Line

The history of our DM Line in simulation, mission and German Armed Forces-training goes back a long way. The basic requirements: maximum reliability even under the most diverse climatic conditions and consistent reduction of pollutants (SINTOX® ignition technology, REACH-compliant propellant powder). Only products that achieve the highest manufacturing standards make it through our partner‘s demanding qualification process and are introduced as a "Deutsches Modell" for widespread use in the troops – which includes snipers, bodyguards and other special forces.
