In a way Colt displayed the same sort of arrogance and believes that the name alone will sell guns.
What I would like to see is brilliant case hardening and blue so deep you can swim in it at a price an average Joe can afford. I think it could be done, but not easily.
I was a member of the "S&W must die" hoard for a long time. I absolutely refused to buy any Colt when they cut their product line to over priced SAAs, 1911s. I love the Colt 1911A1 I bought as a promotion gift from me to me when I made SSgt/E6. Paid $105 new in the box for it. I babble too much.
