    US are looking at LWMMG

    From TFB:

    An extract:

    Last month the United States Special Operations Command along with the United States Marine Corps posted a Sources Sought Solicitation to FedBizOpps (FBO) for 5,000, belt-fed, medium, machineguns in .338 Norma Magnum (NM).

    Before you get too excited, a Sources Sought Solicitation is not an actual bid solicitation or proposal solicitation for the machineguns, but it’s a solicitation of interest. A Sources Sought is best described as SOCOM and the USMC conducting research to figure out the capabilities and the interests of the industry or industries involved. Basically they are asking everyone, “Who can do this thing and how much will it cost in time and money?”

    Everyone who's ever loved you was wrong.
