Game of Carbines

    TFB resident expert Daniel E. Watters has published an article for Defense Industry Daily about the US Army procurement of 70,000 to 100,000 additional M4 Carbines, what is means for Colt, who own the M4 design, and for other manufacturers.

    Obviously, if Colt does not bid low enough, they cannot expect to win the contract. However, if Colt’s bid is significantly lower than their last contract price, they will find Congress, the GAO, and the DOD asking some uncomfortable questions as to why their previous prices were so much higher.
