They'll do what every other metal manufacturer in the country does. They'll sub out the processes they don't have the equipment for.
It'll add a few bucks to the cost, but it'll meet the spec.

Perhaps, but government contracts are all about cost.
The prices are FIXED, so any increased cost comes 100% out of profit.
Like I said, you’d better have the right structure to afford those additional costs, especially over smaller, follow-on contracts.
There’s much more to it than just contracting any old AR manufacturer.
