From yesterday's DoD contract announcements:

 

Colt's Manufacturing Co. LLC, West Hartford, Connecticut, was awarded a $41,924,594 firm-fixed-price Foreign Military Sales (Afghanistan, Bahrain, Djibouti, Federated States of Micronesia, Hungary, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Macedonia, Marshall Islands, Palau, St. Vincent and Grenadines, and Tunisia) contract for production for the M4 and M4A1 carbines. One bid was solicited with one bid received. Work locations and funding will be determined with each order, with an estimated completion date of Sept. 18, 2024. U.S. Army Contracting Command, New Jersey, is the contracting activity (W15QKN-19-D-0116).

 

 

Somewhat surprised that Hungary and Macedonia are on the M4 bandwagon.

Over on Says Uncle, he says this. I suspect he's probably close to the mark.

 

 

 

Colt getting out of the civilian AR market

 

 

The AP reported it. And internet gun people were complaining that Colt is abandoning principles or whatever. Well, if you read Colt’s release on the issue, it’s for business purposes.

Translated for you: Gun people are cheap and are buying other cheaper derp tier guns and not ours at a price we like. We’re out.

Now if the German news media thinks that AR-15s are no longer being made because Colt itself is dropping from the market...they really don't understand reality over here.

Even UAE-based Caracal International has a US division that is manufacturing AR's (contracted to Wilcox Industries in New Hampshire).

Even the Chinese are making them and they can't sell them in the US

Almost every gun owner in Canada has at least one Norinco they are the cheapest guns out here unless Al Jolson Trudeau gets his way. I think Colin had his mishap with a T97.

Oh come on. Five minutes of research with google are too much to ask! Those journalists have to bang out a maximum of headlines.

If you can get them for free* from Uncle Sugar, why not?

 

*Subsidized SOF deployments are a cheap way to build capability.

 

 

Also a cheap way to throw non-US bodies into the fight for the US government.
