Army Picks General Dynamics, US Ordnance for Shared $221M Machine Gun Contract

General Dynamics (NYSE: GD) subsidiary and U.S. Ordnance have secured positions on a potential six-year, $221 million contract to provide flexible and fixed variations of a machine gun system to the U.S. Army.

The Defense Department said Thursday that U.S. Ordnance and General Dynamics’ ordnance and tactical systems business will supply the military branch with M2 and M2A1 machine guns under the shared contract.

The contract was awarded through an online solicitation that received two bids and will run through March 30, 2023, DoD noted.

The Army Contracting Command will determine funds and performance locations upon the issuance of individual task orders.

McCaran, Nevada-based U.S. Ordnance build and sells military small arms, machine guns and replacement parts to U.S. and federally approved international customers.

The General Dynamics OTS business is headquartered in Williston, Vermont, and offers direct and indirect-fire munitions, artillery projectiles, mortar weapons, bomb bodies, propellants and non-lethal force protection products to the U.S. military and its allies.
