The POLSECURE competition award was received by the innovative MWS-15 rifle. It is a firearm that combines modern technology, reliability, and versatility.

“The trade fairs aimed at the uniformed services are an excellent opportunity for us to showcase our new products as well as gather feedback from our customers, including the Police, Border Guard, and the Polish Armed Forces. We are pleased with the significant interest in products ‘made in Poland’ and, of course, with the successive awards, which are the result of the work and dedication of our designers and research and development center,” said Robert Pacana, a member of the ZMT board.

The MWS-15 rifle was created with modern user requirements in mind, offering not only compact construction but also exceptional adaptability. With a short overall length of just 660 mm, the MWS-15 rifle is an unrivaled leader in the Polish market. The short-stroke piston mechanism ensures reliable operation even in the most challenging conditions. The MWS-15 can be powered by .223 Rem, 5.56 mm x 45 NATO, or .300 AAC Blackout ammunition, giving the user the flexibility to choose according to operational needs. Additionally, this rifle has been designed for both right- and left-handed users, offering quick magazine exchange and ease of operation. The unique design allows for firing even with the stock folded, which is crucial in combat situations requiring rapid response.

The MWS-15 not only represents modernity and innovation in the field of personal firearms but also opens up new possibilities for users, providing reliability, adaptability, and comfort in the most demanding combat situations. Zakłady Mechaniczne Tarnów confirm their position as a leader in the firearms industry, offering a rifle on the market that is ready to meet any challenge.


PCO was awarded the Border Laurel and a special distinction by the Commander-in-Chief of the Border Guard.

The Border Laurel was awarded to the company from Warsaw for the universal monocular MU-3M, while the aviation night vision goggles PNL-3X received a special distinction from the Commander-in-Chief of the Border Guard.

The awards were received by the Board Member for Production, Tomasz Drozd.

The miniaturized universal night vision monocular MU-3M is a night vision device designed for observation in nighttime conditions performed by individual user.

The PNL-3X is the latest aviation goggles produced by PCO. They are intended for pilots and other helicopter crew members performing in-flight tasks in low light conditions and at night, without the need for any artificial lighting sources, making border patrolling, law enforcement support, search and rescue missions, HEMS, and aerial firefighting more effective

Additionally, the Polish Armaments Group, as a Capital Group, also received the Top Design award for an attractive and modern trade fair booth. We express our thanks to the award jury for the recognition and to all guests for visiting our exhibition – both indoors and outdoors, PGZ announced on social media.
