Not to worry, Colt will always be a viable company, regardless of military contracts. Do you remember when S&W was in deep financial concern? Look at them now, the largest producer of firearms. Whatever it takes, I am confident in their survival, whether it be new products or increased production of models that they can't make fast enough, ala SAA's through the custom shop and civilian models of AR's, the demand is there, always has been, always will be. Colt is the American legend. Wish they'd ring back the Colt-Sauer rifles, true masterpieces. Long live the king!!
