SIG Sauer recently announced the U.S. Army Contracting Command selected SIG ammunition for a $10 million firm-fixed price contract. SIG will manufacture MK 248 MOD 1 and MOD 0 .300 Win. Mag. ammunition for use in U.S. Military sniper rifle platforms.
U.S. Army Selects SIG Ammunition
“This award by the U.S. Army is validation of our state-of-the-art manufacturing that has resulted in the highest quality, and most precise, ammunition delivering on target accuracy for snipers in the field,” said SIG Sauer President and CEO Ron Cohen.
The U.S. military sniper .300 Win. Mag. ammunition will be manufactured at the state-of-the-art SIG Sauer ammunition manufacturing facility in Jacksonville, Arkansas.
“This is a very exciting development for SIG Sauer, and for the rapidly growing SIG Sauer ammunition division, and we are honored to be recognized by the U.S. Army,” concluded Cohen.
The selection marks just the latest big win for SIG Sauer, especially in terms of military contracts. In the last few years, the company scored several high-profile military contracts. Arguably, no contract moved the needle more than the coveted Modular Handgun competition, which SIG won two years ago. Now the company just keeps securing more government and law enforcement contracts, in seemingly all facets of its manufacturing. No doubt a testament to the quality of products currently turned out by SIG.
