We all heard about Colt’s layoff of people a week or so ago…
One article from The Firearms Blog, HERE. This is really interesting in light of Colt just coming out with a new Cobra.
And now, there’s this!
Colt’s Manufacturing Co., the gun maker that emerged from bankruptcy last year, is purchasing its West Hartford headquarters and manufacturing plant as part of a $23 million investment in Connecticut, Gov. Daniel P. Malloy said Friday.
Colt’s intends to keep its workforce of 600 workers and create 100 jobs over five years, Malloy said. The state Department of Economic and Community Development is providing a $10 million loan, with as much as $2 million forgiven if Colt’s meets job milestones.

Now I’m confused as hell…
As a result of a side discussion, I’ve talked to a couple of gun stores, Colts CAN be had, but the stores normally have to get them from a distributor. Colt doesn’t seem to have any ‘direct’ sales to gun stores unless they are the big boys, like Cabelas, Bass Pro, and Wally World, e.g. those who buy in LARGE volume.
I’ll try to run this particular rabbit to ground at NRA, assuming I can get one of the Colt reps there to actually answer my questions.
