Does anyone have any details on what will actually comprise the new US Army CQB variant of the M-4? Specific questions:
1) How many upgrade kits will be procured and when is procurement action slated to commence?
2) Is there going to be a Broad Area Announcement or have they decided already what they will procure?
3) Will the standard M-4 barrel profile be retained?
4) To what extent will the XM-8 proponents at Fort Belvoir and Picatinny (and to a lesser extend, DCD Fort Benning)see this action as a threat to their rice bowl and how will they combat this upgrade initiative?

Thank you.

Haven't been keeping up on news lately, be interested to hear the Army's plan for CQB weapons and the replies here.
