A buddy of mine, an engineer by trade, recently toured Colt's facilities, and the one thing that he kept mentioning was how much gauging they do as the parts are made. It looks like (he took a ton of pictures, where allowed) there's some sort of gauging fixture at almost every machine, and the parts are popped out of the mill, the lube blown off, and into the gauge they go. He was very impressed with both the level of automation (lots of new CNC machines), and the amount of handwork being performed.
