Remington Defense, the LEO/Military sales arm of Remington Outdoor, has secured a contract to supply the US Army with commercial off the shelf carbines.
The company isn’t disclosing which carbines or how many of them, but you’d have to guess the deal would include their R4 AR pattern rifle or possibly the ACR. Or maybe both! Here’s their press release:
