    Granted Jim and his team did great work, but Brent at Colt told me his daughter and son-in-law are continuing the business and doing fine work still. I personally would have no hesitation going to them if I was in the market again.

    Nutmeg shipped my King Cobra earlier this week. I know they are still operating. It amazes me that folks hear stuff they don't believe on the net, then ask the net if it's true! Pick up the phone, it's free, it's fast and it's fact!

    Totally agree! He mentored them as they worked with him side by side in his daily chores. He is sure missed but they will carry on his tradition of fine craftsmanship, I feel sure.

    I wouldn't dismiss Nutmeg either...
    l will assume they are still top notch and I have previously had them fit ivory to a SAA and was well satisfied.

    I suspect that towards the end, Jim was more of a CEO of Nutmeg. He evidently left the
    business in very competent hands.
