I did a quick search, and could find nothing relevant, so I do hope this is not duplicating the work of anyone else!

USMC Issues M27 Production Delivery Order to HK

(GunReports.com) - Heckler & Koch has won a "Full Rate Production" contract to produce the U.S. Marine Corps' new M27 Infantry Automatic Rifle, a lightweight 11.62-pound weapon with ancillary equipment. It’s a variant of the Heckler & Koch HK416.

The M27 IAR replaces the heavier M249 SAW (Squad Automatic Weapon), which has been used by the Marines in infantry squads since the mid-1980s. Both weapons fire the 5.56mm NATO cartridge. There will be one M27 IAR per four-man fire team, with three M27 IARs per squad, 28 per company and more than 4,000 across the entire Marine Corps.

The five-year, indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity contract calls for possible delivery orders up to $23.6M for the production, delivery, and associated support of the Marines' Infantry Automatic Rifle program.
