These is not Colt’s or FN’s first time vying for foreign government contracts. Back in 2018 Colt won a $57 million dollar contract to supply M4s for Jordan, Morocco, Afghanistan, and others. In 2019 the U.S. Army awarded FN with $119 million dollar contract for FN to produce M4s through 2025.
Below is the DoD announcement of the foreign military contract soliciting Colt and FN to produce M4s.
FN America LLC, Columbia, South Carolina (W56HZV-20-D-0024); and Colt’s Manufacturing Co. LLC, West Hartford, Connecticut (W56HZV-20-D-0025), will compete for each order of the $383,311,941 firm-fixed-price contract to provide M16A4 rifles for Foreign Military Sales (Afghanistan, Grenada, Iraq, Lebanon and Nepal). Bids were solicited via the internet with three received. Work locations and funding will be determined with each order, with an estimated completion date of April 28, 2025. U.S. Army Contracting Command, Detroit Arsenal, Michigan, is the contracting activity.
