About Us


Accu-Counter, incorporated in 1994, was granted its first patent for a weapon shot counter in 1995.  The founder having a background in law enforcement wrote the initial business plan to market shot counters to both the domestic and international law enforcement community.


The early shot counters included a digital display that showed the enforcement officer the number of rounds remaining in the weapon.  This feature led to interest among a number of weapon manufacturer’s as well as the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS).  Interest at INS was firm and growing until September 11, 2001, but events of that day led to the INS being merged into the Department of Homeland Security and the years of development and plans for fielding were lost in the post 9-11 period.


June 2001 the Department of the Navy contacted Accu-Counter requesting the development of a device to monitor shots fired on the M4A1 Carbine.  Following this inquiry, Accu-Counter responded to the Navy and in May 2003 Accu-Counter received a development contract for the M4A1 shot counter and won both the competitive solicitation and subsequent 2006 production order.


2007 began with Accu-Counter completing its M4A1 production order and focusing attention on the growing interest in shot counters coming from a number of US allies and domestic manufacturers.  This interest led to the successful development of shot counters for a number of additional small arms weapon systems worldwide.


Accu-Counter began to conceptualize and formulate plans for a comprehensive shot counter based weapon maintenance system in late 2008.  It was determined that the existing shot counter technology with enhancements to store maintenance data in the shot counter module and software to use this data could effectively guide maintenance action.


Following several years of development and testing Accu-Counter began offering the ACT weapon management system in 2010. In June 2013 ACT was awarded a US Patent on this revolutionary weapon sustainment and maintenance tracking system.
