I would like to see select percussion pistols reintroduced but made here and equaling the quality of the originals.

Not going to happen. There are too many NIB 2nd and 3rd generation blackpowder guns for sale on the net, indicating a lack of demand. The cost to tool up would be prohibitive. The only cost effective way is to import parts, then fit, finish and assemble them in Hartford, which is what they did with the 2nd Gen. guns. A lot of Colt purists don't consider them "real" Colts, but heck, Colt used subcontractors to supply parts, and even entire guns, starting with the Patterson Colts, so I don't see the difference as long as the quality is up to Colt's standards. The bluing on my 2nd Gen. 1851 Navy is as good a finish as I've ever seen on any gun. You can literally read the print on a newspaper reflected in the finish on the barrel. The colors in the case hardened frame are beautiful, and the gun locks up like a bank vault. I don't see how they could have been better.
Have had this discussion over and over with Colt fans. Looks like what they are going to do is nothing. They have sold the trademark names of many models to USFA. Would be surprised if we ever see a new 357 , 44 or 45 double action revolver, 22 auto, 380 auto or 38 Detective Spl again . Would think that with Cowboy Action Shooting being as big as it is , they would have at least reintroduced the 22 Peacemaker and New Frontier
