PT Pindad in Bandung, West Java, is the Indonesian government's munitions factory that produces weapons and ammunition for both domestic use and export. It has the capacity to produce 14,000-15,000 weapons a year, including a variety of assault rifles, sniper rifles, grenade launchers, pistols and revolvers; the Indonesian military and police can absorb about 10,000.

The ammunitions division of PT Pindad is based in Turen, Malang, East Java, and produces about 150,000 rounds of ammunition a year to NATO standards, but 75 per cent of this is 5.56mm calibre bullets for assault rifles, particularly the SS1 and its updated successor, the SS2.
