That's the price of being a sucker. Colt never said they were leaving commercial production permanently; they said the opposite, in fact.
If someone chose to believe the wailing and gnashing of teeth of the gun store rumormill and web forums and the pearl-clutching by gun Youtubers exploiting controversy for views over Colt openly saying they were temporarily
suspending commercial sales while they have a glut of product in the channel
to catch up on FMS contracts they're behind on, that's their own fault.
They've caught up, and the 12+ months worth of inventory floating in distributor channels has cleared so they're back. Like they said they would be. What a surprise.
