The M240 Lightweight Adjustable Bipod (hereafter referenced as the M240 Bipod) is used on the M240 L infantry machine gun to provide a stable platform for firing the weapon from any surface or terrain. The adjustable bipod provides three adjustment positions over approximately 3 inches of range per leg, with the collapsed position equivalent to the length of the standard bipod. This version includes titanium components that provides a weight savings of ½ lb. over the current steel adjustable bipod design. Any offeror awarded a contract resulting from the formal solicitation shall be required to conduct First Article Test (s) (FAT) and a Lot Acceptance Test(s) (LAT). The FAT and LAT requirements will be outlined and included in the draft solicitation. Should a resulting contract be awarded, the First Article sample shall be submitted to the Government 240 days After Contract Award (ACA) and monthly production deliveries shall commence 75 days after contractor receipt of written U.S. Government approval of the First Article Sample with 100 Lightweight Adjustable Bipod Assemblies to be manufactured the first month, followed by a quantity of 200 Bipod Assemblies the following two months and ramping up to a rate of 250 Bipod Assemblies per month for the subsequent months for the remaining balance of the contract. Delivery schedules for future orders will be established at the time of award.
