Executive Briefings

  The markets we serve are highly competitive. Our principal competitor for U.S. We also face competition for U.S. Government business from smaller companies that compete for small business set-aside contracts.  Although we anticipate that robust competition for U.S. military contracts will continue to exist, entrance barriers are high due to rigorous production and quality standards to which defense contractors are subject.  Accordingly, we believe that our ability to ship large quantities of high-quality product on time and our long track record provide us with a competitive advantage over potential new entrants into this market.   8   Outside Canada and the United States, our principal competitors for foreign military and law enforcement sales are foreign small arms manufacturers.  In countries that already have inventories of M16 rifles and M4 carbines in service as a result of prior purchases directly from us or through the U.S. Governments FMS program, we believe our incumbency provides a competitive advantage. commercial firearms market is highly competitive.  The market is dominated by a small number of well known manufacturers.  In the MSR market, we compete primarily with Bushmaster, DPMS, Daniels Defense and Smith Colt Defense
