This pretty much seems like a hit piece on Colt. If there are problems with the gun, by all means fix it or put out another bid for design and price and replace the thing.
Keep production in the United States.
Someone is always belching about a corporation making money of the U.S. Government and wars. That’s the way it works. If you put out a good product, you should get fair return. A healthy company makes for a good source when quality merchandise is required.
Since when is it a business concern to give product away, just because the purchaser is the federal government.
‘Since when is it a business concern to give product away, just because the purchaser is the federal government.”
man you’ve apparently never dealt with a contracting officer for the federal government. those folks are TIGHT
Defense firms are obligated to put out products that perform perfectly (in spite of the governments inability to define the requirements) and guaranty the taxpayers they are making no profit on the contract.
I agree. Colt could easily buy H&K’s piston system patent and introduce them in their weapons...better yet...someone in America should introduce something similar.
Good point. Colt made a mint selling their revolvers to the Federal Government during the Civil War.
