In a major move in the firearm industry, CZ has acquired Colt for $220 million, gaining an iconic brand and US infrastructure.
More. Just like the old Winchesters.When the smoke clears will these pre acquisition pistols be worth more or less?
I had to send a Colt back due to cracked frame with reservations after reading all the horror stories. The customer service was good, I had a new gun within a few weeks. Maybe it was quicker because they didn’t have to fix it, just replace it.They will need to address their customer service. I have multiple, months old inquiries that have gone unanswered by the CZ customer service team. I just moved on and bought something else after not hearing back.
Colt was first bought out in the 1960s... by an investment group that couldn't care less about firearms or the Second Amendment. For the first time in 60 years they are now a GUN company first and foremost once again. I couldn't care less that they're now owned by a bunch of Czechs. They probably know more about freedom than most younger Americans do these days.I really hate to see an American brand that stood for quality have issues and have to be bought out.
I agree. Service/defense pistols, competition pistols, military rifles, hunting rifles, shotguns.This is a very good thing. I'll raise MAYHEM on his point: I believe CZ is making the finest, massed-produced firearms at the moment, period. I know that says a lot considering some of the competition, but I honestly haven't come across a bad example of their work, be it pistol, PCC, rifle or shotgun. Dreadful thought, but, If I were limited to only one make, it would be CZ.
