Its about time, Colt is way behind in offering marketable guns to civilians.  You can always find plentiful of Glocks, Sigs, Rugers & S&Ws etc in stores (precovid), but few Colts at reasonable prices.

I think quality will improve greatly with CZ in charge, but I expect prices to actually go up.

Agreed. I think their prices will go up @20-30%, but quality will be vastly improved.

Interesting read. Very unfortunate that Colt was so badly mismanaged re the civilian market. Hopeful that CZ will turn things around.

another possible outcome is that they move some CZ production here and the lack luster Colt workers ruin CZ just like they ruined Colt.  i have a relative that works in west hartford and claims his fellow employees dont give a crap and can do no wrong, while  management is hand cuffed by the union that backs its employees no matter what.  i'll add my relative is part of the regular workforce, NOT a member of management.

i hope CZ is not ruined, as i am a HUUUUGE fan
