    Reason: Armament Research Development
    One needs original parts and weaponry to compare to modern weaponry for testing and development, and to use for "other" purposes, to include possible training (special ops for example) and force multiplication (to proliferate other armies possibly). One might also say that these orders *could* reduce the civilian market as well for the United States.

    Good luck with that link. Try this: Home - Federal Business Opportunities: Home Then click on "Opportunities" tab.

    Whew, I was getting worried there for a minute. Yeah, I could surely see how they'd want to get their hands on those CZ-52's and other obsolete gear for comparing to the well, Modern weaponry. [tinfoil101]

    Yep, those modern weapons from foreign lands.
    I can see how the Makarov, Tokarev, SKS, SVD are really not well known by our military and the arms manufacturers.

    Well......I shouldn't be too surprised to find the weapons so gleaned being discovered in Syria.....sending US manufactured ordnance might be just a little too embarrasing to explain.....

    Chell,I don't think our goobs really care about embarrassment judging from their actions lately.Or they're just getting used to it maybe.Sad to say but it wouldn't surprise me to find them used in another false flag incident.Not necessarily foreign either.Of course everyone here knows I buy tin foil by the pallet anyway.

    Arming foriegn indigendious tribes with U.S. weapons would be taboo. But I agree that it squeezes the market here at home for these types of weap's. Is that a coincidence, not sure but now days I suspect most every tricky move the government does.

    Maybe they can't order the parts/guns online. All of the survivalists have bought out what was already in stock.
