    1.7 billion allocated? At a high cost of $1,000 a unit that is still 177,000 rifles. Where are all those going?

  2. TheScrutineer says:

    Does anyone legitimately know what exactly is meant by “modification (P00009) to contract W15QKN-15-D-0072 for M4 and M4A1 carbines”?
    Is this literally weapons modifications (M4 to M4A1 mod) or an augmentation of a preexisting contract for X number of carbines to now reflect a greater number?
    Or something else all together?

  3. Bubba K says:

    It’s the number of the modification to the basic contract. P00008 and P00009 just refer to the 8th and 9th mods to their respective contracts.
