Government Upgrades M4 A-1 Carbine

It all sounds good. But if they actually think they're going to get a guaranteed gun that shoots under MOA, (5" groups at 600 yards guaranteed), they're going to be paying a hell of a lot more than $642.00 a gun. They better give Les Baer a call........ And get out their checkbooks.

I think it's a mistake replacing all M16s with M4A1s no matter how good they are. M16s are a better solution to most problems and the longer barrel makes the most of the anemic ammo.
""It may be laid down as a primary position, and the basis of our system, that every Citizen who enjoys the protection of a free Government, owes not only a proportion of his property, but even his personal services to the defence of it, and consequently that the Citizens of America (with a few legal and official exceptions) from 18 to 50 Years of Age should be borne on the Militia Rolls, provided with uniform Arms, and so far accustomed to the use of them, that the Total strength of the Country might be called forth at a Short Notice on any very interesting Emergency." - George Washington.

Actually, from experience, sometimes winning government contracts is a very unlucky thing.   The companies that make money only do so in the long run with add-ons, modifications and followup contracts.  I don't think initial contracts by themselves ever pan out.
