The US Army is looking to purchase an additional 70,000 – 100,000 M4A1 Carbines.
The total estimated quantity is 70,000 to 100, 000 weapons. The Government anticipates ordering 25-30% in each of years 1 and 2 and 13-17% in each of years 3 through 5. Award is intended to be acquired through best value competition restricted to the U.S. & Territories. The carbines will be produced in accordance with the M4/M4A1 Technical Data Package (TDP) and the license agreement between the U.S. Government and Colt Defense, LLC.
It is interesting to note that the pre-solicitation request makes no mention of the M4 upgrades that PEO Solider is working on.
