Military Times GearScout writer Rob Curtis just broke the story on Remington Military/Remington Defense landing a reported initial $16,163,252.07 USD contract for 24,000 for M4/M4A1 carbines, which comes to approximately $673 USD per rifle/carbine, according to Curtis’ calculation. The kicker is that Curtis reports that the new Remington M4/M4A1 Carbine contract could eventually be for up to 120,000 carbines worth $83,924,089.00, total, which would be a nice little chunk of change, particularly for an infantry small arms contract in the current depressed U.S. military procurement environment.
The new Remington Military/Remington Defense M4/M4A1 Carbines will reportedly be produced at Remington’s Ilion, NY factory from Colt Defense’s M4/M4A1 TDP (Technical Data Package).
This news is just hours old, but the Remington M4/M4A1 Carbine contract award has reportedly been confirmed by Remington personnel.
Curtis ends his short piece with the following advice, which seems solid:
Any of you that were about to buy milspec parts for your guns, now’s a good time. I’m sure Remington is about to go on an OEM parts buying binge.
