    I guess it ain't all bad on this forum, because I would have this gun. It is an offer listed on Gun Deals.com

    It is nice, and that Cerakote finish makes it extra nice. I am sure that it is made in Mexico, or the Philippines because it costs about $450 with free S&H.
    To me, it demonstrates why Colt went bankrupt, since there are a lot of good features included, like the speed hammer and beavertail safety. Those used to be luxury items.

    Yes, it does look good.
    Guns like this are killing Colt, and they are clueless there on what to do. Here is a start, let Colt produce guns like this, at a competitive price.

    Oh well, Colt can compete if they really wanted to besides they are also losing business to companies like Kimber and Springfield who are putting out just as good if not better products. Colts business modle is outdated you never see much PR from them if it was not for the defense contracts that kept them afloat they would have been dead and gone years ago.

    I don't know how Colt is holding on, they lost all of their military light weapons contracts. I had a Colt M4 in the NG, and it was great weapon, so I do hate to see them go under.
    But that looks like its going to eventually happen.

    It was the best gun that I have ever fired, IMHO. The H&K MP-5 is right there with it, it is the sweetest SMG in the world.
