TheĀ  U.S. Army is starting to shop around for a new weapon to replace the M4 carbine, writes Danger Room’s Noah Schachtman. Earlier this month, the service held an invitation-only expo in Arlington, Va., for small arms manufacturers to get a feel for what kind of small arms technology is currently on the market.

Several major gun manufacturers took part in the industry day, including Heckler & Koch, FN Herstal, Colt Defense, Sig Sauer and Smith & Wesson. But smaller outfits like Precision Reflex (a maker of accessories for the AR15/M16) and Barrett Firearms (best known as a manufacturer of a .50-caliber sniper rifle) also took part.
