Army Taps Gun Makers to Advance in Carbine Competition


I just found out a couple of hours ago that the Army notified Colt Defense LLC, Heckler & Koch, Remington Arms Company and Adcor Defense Inc. that they made the cut to compete in Phase II of the service's competition to replace the M4 Carbine.
