Work on M3 Tripod Mounts Not
January 16, 2008
Ketchikan, Alaska - News and press releases circulating the
internet reporting that Cape Fox Corporation of Ketchikan, Alaska,
has been awarded an $8,523,776 Defense Department contract to
manufacture 12,278 M3 tripod mounts is incorrect according to
Ketchikan-based Cape Fox General Manager David Landis. The reports
that the work will be performed in Ketchikan is also incorrect.
Virginia-based Cape Fox Professional
Services, a parent company, did receive the U.S. Defense Department
contract which was awarded on Jan. 10, 2008. The work will be
completed back east, not in Ketchikan, Alaska.
The M3 tripod mount is a ground
mount for use with the M2 .50 cal. machine gun or the MK19 40mm
grenade machine gun. The M3 mount consists of a folding tripod,
a pintle, and elevating and traversing mechanism.
