What's my motivation?
I bought the Colt when the Smiths were having OOB problems that blew their little extractors off. Ater that the Smiths had to have the blue spring upgrade.
People were sending them back to the factory to fix nasty failures. It was a regular safety issue. OOB is no joke! Something was brought to market early, but it's not a Smith until it runs right! I have my standards. So I bought the metal Colt M4gery, it's been perfect, and now you know the rest of the story.
