during sample testing of one of every ten, an additional sample of
ten rifles shall be tested for cyclic rate.
The 10 rifles tested
shall meet the cyclic rate of fire specified in 3.4.5.
If one or
more rifles fail to meet the requirements, the contractor shall
return to 100% testing of each rifle for cyclic rate of fire until
