What the hell is up with the Army and their new infatuation with all things SIG? What General is about to retire to a comfy post army job at Sig or what senator is getting a new manufacturing facility in their state?
The Department of Defense announced:
SIG Sauer Inc., Newington, New Hampshire, was awarded a $10,000,000 firm-fixed-price contract for procurement of .300 Winchester Magnum Ammunition. Bids were solicited via the internet with five received. Work locations and funding will be determined with each order, with an estimated completion date of Sept. 30, 2024. U.S. Army Contracting Command, Rock Island Arsenal, Illinois, is the contracting activity (W52P1J-20-D-0003).
It seems they want a one stop shop for everything from scopes to ammo and everything in between. Has SIG started making uniforms yet?
