UPDATED: 4/24/2012

Remington has announced that the company has been awarded an indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contract for M4/M4A1 Carbines from the United States Army.

The Army has initially ordered 24,000 M4A1 carbines from Remington, and deliveries will start in September 2013.

Multiple reports, including one from Gannett's Army Times, have stated that the initial order of 24,000 is valued at over $16 million.

The rifles will be manufactured at Remington's Ilion, N.Y. factory. The contract has a procurement maximum of 120,000, which the Army Times estimates would take the deal's value to over $80 million.

Prior to the contract announcement, the Army had been receiving M4 Carbines from Colt. It is not yet known what repercussion's Remington's new deal will ultimately have on Colt's relationship with the military.

Actually he'd get 24,000 of them at that price if he bought 24,000 of them. Yes, that just happened. Capt Obvious strikes again.... Don't mind me; 4 hours of sleep in the last three days. Apologies. ;-P

You can probably get one for that if you purchase 24,000 of them.

If my math is right, that's $666 per rifle. A little too weird for me.
