Questions for those "in the know" on the distribution process with Colt guns. They use wholesaler/distributors, correct? I don't understand why the larger Colt retailers, at least larger to my knowledge, haven't received any of these yet a couple of smaller places have popped up with them. I know Tanner's is a decent size dealer, but SAW, Knesek, Clyde's, etc., don't have them. I saw that someone posted a picture (on another forum) from a place that they had bought one from that I've never heard of and a place had them on GB over the last week, also that I'd never heard of. Knesek lists them but does not have them in stock. How can they get to smaller retailers before they get to the larger ones? It doesn't make a lot of sense, but I'm sure there is a good reason for it and they'll start showing up in more places.
Also, someone indictated on another thread that Colt told them that they are only doing one run of these a year now. I thought that they did two of them in the past, possibly one in the spring and one in the fall, if I remember correctly. Anyone know if this is correct and if so how many they would run? I tried calling Colt this afternoon to ask them and was on hold for what felt like forever and finally hung up.
