USSOCOM Selects SIG Rattler for Reduced Signature Assault Rifle

The United States Special Operations Command has awarded SIG SAUER a 5-year, Indefinite Delivery, Indefinite Quantity contract valued at $5,000,000.00.

SOF selected the Rattler for this Commercial PDW Contract, which is known as the Reduced Signature Assault Rifle (RSAR) within the Command in order to provide Operators with maximum firepower in a concealable weapon.

This IDIQ will provide complete PDW weapons (Sig Rattlers – 5.56mm and .300 Blackout caliber) that includes suppressors (SL series), cleaning kits, magazines, quick barrel change kits, force on force training kits and other accessories. Furthermore, parts, sustainment, and New Equipment Training is also part of this IDIQ.

    SSD,

    How does this contract award differ from the previous Rattler PDW award?

    Is this for Rattlers in a different configuration or is it an add on of the previous ID/IQ?

      Looks to me like the Magic Sauce here is the bundle (giving it a name like RSAR helps) which gets them to a new pot of money. The original award didn’t have the silencer and other accessories plus the NET.

      Which is interesting. What NET does SOCOM need on these weapons? They have had them in inventory since 2019.

        The New Equipment Training is likely teaching the operators to not load their RSR .300 Blackout magazines into their 5.56 guns and blow them up ( /s but has already been done).
