       The justification for the procurement of the brand name parts that are required to build the
M40A5 is Federal Acquisition Regulation 13.5 Test Program for Certain Commercial Items and is
based on the fact that parts referenced in the M40A5 technical data package (TDP) or SL-3 list
are identified by specific part numbers from specific manufacturers. The Marine Corps’ M40A5
is built by the Precision Weapons Section (PWS), Weapons Training Battalion. The TDP is
owned by the Marine Corps, specifically Marine Corps Systems Command. The M40A5 is a
precision weapon and, as such, requires tight tolerances. The M40A5 was developed, tested and
certified using specific parts from specific manufacturers. These parts are then modified and
assembled in accordance with the TDP to produce a precision weapons system.
