Quad City Cartridge Case Facility

Installation Overview

The QCCCF is located in the southwest corner of Building 299 at the Rock Island Arsenal. The facility occupies 170,000 square feet of the building.


Manufacturing of brass and steel cartridge cases ranging from 40mm through 155mm



The deep-drawn cartridge case production capability was located at the former Riverbank Army Ammunition Plant (RBAAP) in Riverbank, Calif. When RBAAP was closed through the BRAC of 2005, the brass and steel deep-drawn cartridge cases capabilities were relocated to Rock Island Arsenal, Ill. The new facility was completed in 2011 and named the Quad City Cartridge Case Facility (QCCCF). In 2011, the steel case production line was successfully tested and proven out in its new location. Due to decreased procurements for cartridge cases, QCCCF was laid away in 2014. The Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC) began the reactivation of QCCCF for research, development and production efforts in 2017. QCCCF is a Government-Owned, Contractor-Operated (GOCO) facility.
