I know calico went under, but does anybody know if their guns/ designs will ever re-emerge? perhaps some enterprising soul or company bought the patents?

maybe they already have?

Calico is still in business, I recently bought (and subsequently sold) a M-100 .22lr rifle.

Why did you sell it? Did it work OK? I'd think they'd be fun if they were reliable shooters, a bit expensive for a .22 though.

It worked with CCI MiniMags very well. I didn't want it anymore, I had more accurate .22s, and I didn't really need the 100 round capacity. I'm happy with my 10/22s and Henry leverguns.

oops. I really thought they had gone under and their site did not pop up on my google search for calico or calico rifle. I was actually hoping maybe some other company would come out with a similar product that was not quite so.....well, you can't call the .22 anything but ugly. and the 9mm doesn't fit me quite right.
i LOVE the designs though.

They are back up and running. The company did go under, but is now back in business.
