General Dynamics Receives 7th Army Order for M2 Machine Guns

General Dynamics‘ (NYSE: GD) armament and technical products business unit has been awarded a $6.9 million contract by the U.S. Army‘s TACOM Life Cycle Management Command to produce approximately 600 M2 heavy-barrel machine guns.

The Army originally awarded the company an indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract in 2009 and this is the seventh delivery order awarded.

“Fielded with military forces worldwide, the M2 machine gun has a well-deserved reputation as a highly accurate, effective weapon, ” said Steve Elgin, General Dynamics’ vice president and general manager of armament systems. “These new M2s will continue to serve U.S. warfighters well into the future.”

Work will be conducted at the company’s facility in Saco, Maine, which has manufactured the M2 guns since 1979.
