    I have been told by two different dealers that they are not making it anymore but I do see it listed on their website. Who knows the lowdown?

    Yep, still making them. For some reason, dealers seem to think Colt is out of business. The only reson I can think that they would think that way is because Colt does not by advertising like Kimber does and put an add in everything from Handguns R U to Uber Tactical, the Mall Ninjas choice.

    Colt is still very much in business. I actually saw a new roll marked Series 70 Stainless in the case at dealer just a couple of weeks ago. Most dealers will tell you that Colt is out of business and Kimber makes the best 1911 ever produced. Is Kimber giving these guys kick backs?

    Colt has some great 1911's in production at the moment and they are reasonably priced. Can't say that about the only two revolvers they are producing, but the 1911's are a good deal. They really should expand their advertising budget.

    Kind of... at a shop I frequent, Kimber gets so much space, top shelf placing and must carry certain low selling models.

    Ok, so it isn't a kickback per se, but a lot like the grocery store business.

    Don't forget that the recent Colt workforce strike caused a big gap in product delivery from Hartford.

    Didn't the gap exist before then?

    I still would like to know if any 1911's were built using Colt management instead of the union workers. It'd be neat to have one of those 1911's. Not that they'd be better or worse, just kind of cool.
