    Lew Horton Distributing.....GONE

    Lew Horton put out a letter today announcing that they're closing their doors.

    This is the end of an era. Horton had many exclusive Colt firearms made for them and many are very collectible.

    Sad to hear. I guess the prices of Horton special edition guns just went up.

    While I won't claim I have spent a lot of time researching their guns.....most of them that I have seen weren't very appealing....

    Too bad, good company. Especially Earl Minot. He was a champ of a guy when reseaching a Lew Horton edition firearm. Aways had a ton of information and would normally get back to you within the same day. All free!

    Earl was good until they started charging for a letter of authenticity. Got me for $25, not a lot but it was one of their guns a BSS Delta, real sharp piece.
