Sabre joins Colt and FN in the list of GI M16s.

Sabre Defence has gotten final approval to crank out M16A3s and M16A4s for the US military. Currently, Colt produces the M4 Carbine and FN produces the M16. The Tactical Wire reports:

Sabre Defence Industries was honored in 2008 with the award of a Government contract to supply the complete weapons system known as the M16A3 and M16A4. After gearing up in 2009 to produce this weapon and passing all the stringent Government tests, Sabre was given approval to enter full production and begin deliveries. This award makes Sabre Defence one of the very few companies ever to provide a military specification rifle to the U.S. Government.
