So the short story is this: Colt makes good stuff and could make some cool stuff that'd do well based on brand loyalty, but the company is run by idiots. Basically pencil pushers and guys who don't know too much about guns or how to run a firearms company.

Oddly, it seems that Colt Canada has their crap together, considering that they stayed solvent the last time that CMC/Colt Defense filed for bankruptcy after they lost exclusive rights supplying the M4 for the US Armed Forces (they now share contracts with FNUSA). Maybe they should import their management from the Canadian division, eh?

Also oddly, I saw a video the other night on You Tube about the Colt IAR. Seems to be a pretty good weapon that if Colt made a semi-auto commercial version would've sold well if marketed properly.
