I agree, but do not forget that there is life outside the US, Colt si selling well their products overseas. Anyway I am pretty sure CZ will use Colt to compete for US military trials in the futureColt might be able to sell to foreign military markets but they won’t be making much more money off the US Military.
the US Army is currently working with three entities to develop the new infantry rifle and Colt isn’t one of them. Neither is FN. the three players are Textron, SIG Sauer and General Dynamics (with Beretta’s involvement).
The US Marine Corps is buying HK-made M27 to replace the M4 as their main infantry rifle.
