Madison, NC – The U.S. Army Tank-Automotive & Armaments Command, Rock Island, Ill. has awarded Remington Arms Co. Inc., a $1.7 million contract for the purchase of more than 1400 Model 870 Modular Combat Shotgun systems. The Model 870 MCS systems will ultimately be utilized in our Nation’s efforts in the global war on terrorism.

Remington has responded to these changing needs with a Combat Shotgun System that provides unmatched operator-level modularity; the Model 870 Modular Combat Shotgun (MCS).
