    Sorry kids! Two words,bean counters! They care about profit and the bottom line. Not brand quality or loyalty. Some are starting to see that loyalty is key.

    As Dr Phil would say, how's that working out for them?

    I wonder if government agencies are telling them they won't buy if Colt sells to civilians. The large cities are run by Democrats who are against the likes of private individuals owning any kind of firearm, let alone an AR or AK.

    I got this in my email a few days ago. Turner's placing one last order - for those hoping it will be like one of the 7/300 6-cylinder Plymouth Valiant that came with power brakes, white seat stitching instead of black and a 3-speed manual....

    I hope they start putting out the old single action army again.
    I don't know how long it's been since I've seen one that wasn't $1.700 to 2 grand.

    Just got a email from CDNN. Dpms AR shipped free for $399! Colt would have to really cut corners to compete with that.
    The quality of Colts builds can’t be done for cheap, don’t blame them for giving up on the consumer mkt.
