U.S. Army Contracting Command-New Jersey has awarded Sig Sauer a contract for its SP2022 pistols, 716G2 rifles, MCX carbines and MPX submachine guns.

Sig’s Guns

According to the terms of the deal, Sig will deliver up to 500 716G2 rifles, with one 20-round PMAG included with each rifle. The company will also supply 300 MCX carbines—100 of those carbines will have a nine-inch barrel, another 100 will have an 11.5-inch barrel and the final batch will be equipped with a 16-inch barrel.

Next, the Army wants up to 1,000 MPX subguns with a 4.5-inch barrel. It also wants another 1,000 MPX guns with an eight-inch barrel. Each MPX will also come with a 30-round Sig factory magazine. The contract also covers up to 5,000 Sig SP2022 pistols. Three steel Sig factory 15-round magazines are to be included with each pistol. Last, but certainly not least, Sig will provide up to 100 9mm SRD9 pistol suppressors.

Deal Specifics

We don’t know the monetary value of the award, as it isn’t mentioned in the notice. However, we do know that this is a five-year, IDIQ (Indefinite Delivery, Indefinite Quantity) contract with firm-fixed price delivery orders. The notice also doesn’t state where in the service these firearms will be used. Here’s a little more detail, pulled from the solicitation page:

Sig Sauer was the only company identified through market research that could provide the necessary various Sig Sauer Systems (firearms), namely the SP2022, MPX, and the MCX along with silencers and associated accessories to include magazines and spare parts which met the Government’s requirements for a Commercial off the Shelf (COTS).

The acquisition of production items from sources other than Sig Sauer will not meet schedule requirements.
