Colt does not make much in the current field maybe because:
2. Military contracts
3. Fat, Dumb, and Lazy.
Or more likely a combination of the above.
I have a few older 'collectible' Colts but unless they totally modernized their machinery with CNC, come out with something innovative revolver/auto concepts, and seriously try to get some of the Glock/S&W/Sig trade through hard bargaining, I doubt they will even think of it. Just to easy to get the military contracts and live of the 'Colt' name. No risk for them.
