U.S. To Buy More M2 Machine Gun Parts

The U.S. Defense Department placed a contract with Sabre Defence Industries for barrels for the M2 0.50 caliber machine gun. The venerable M2 has been in use with the U.S. military and many allies since World War II. A new machine gun firing that ammunition has been developed and entered service but the M2 is still around and in heavy use in Iraq and Afghanistan. The contract is for 8,000 barrels and is worth $6.7 million.

Sabre Defense is a small business that makes assault rifles and M2 parts for use by military, law enforcement, and shooting competitors. They are based out of Nashville, TN. They continue to demonstrate that there remains a market for support to older, effective equipment even if it is not being used necessarily by front line forces.

Navy buys M16 rifles

The US Navy, along with the USMC, and acting for FMS customers awarded a contract to Sabre Defence to manufacture M16 rifles. See a press release here. Sabre becomes only the third company to manufacture military specification M16 rifles since its introduction in the early Sixties. The order seems small at under 6,000 rifles but the Army and USMC have turned to the Colt Industries M4 carbine over recent years. The Special Operations Command went with their own unique HK product as well. The number of M16 rifles in the US inventory is large and will probably support needs in the near future.
