Utah gun maker declines $15M deal with Pakistan

A Utah-based gun maker rejected a potential $15 million deal with Pakistan over concerns the weapons could eventually be used against U.S. troops, The Associated Press reports.

Desert Tech decided not to pursue the contract to provide rifles to Pakistan, which it was on the short list to receive, due to unrest in Pakistan and ethical concerns, said Mike Davis, the company’s sales manager.

"We don't know that those guns would've went somewhere bad, but with the unrest we just ended up not feeling right about it," Davis told KTVX-TV.
