That was my initial idea too! If we get 40 odd percent, we can actually kill the corporate AWB! (of course as a safe queen 6920 owner, I am secretly harboring the hope that they discontinue the line!)

Pretty cool. I have quite a few of the old "Colt's Manufacturing Company" stock certificates. They're not worth anything, outside of the collector value to a gun nut.

Guilt­y!

I think I'd wait to see who gets the .mil contracts once the govenment decides on what the next rifle will be.

If Colt loses their government contracts (which at some point in the future, they are bound to), I think bankruptcy will not be far behind.

Just a total guess on my part - I don't actually know much about colt's finances or corporate strategy.

The gun owners like you and me will not be the majority shareholders though.

Growth Funds like Franklin Templeton will be the principle investors most likely.

No disagreement there. How else would I be able to own so many worthless Colt's stock certificates?

initial price (opps) public offering...they must be really hurting for money, and need bucks to keep their operation running. I don't know..........given the way that company is being runned, that stock maybe just good to wall paper the wall with, and not much else...........I don't think it would make good toilet paper.

Initial Public Offering.....its when a private company goes public and tries to raise capital by selling ownership in the form of stock.....generally a very risky investment.....can offer huge losses or huge rewards....

My GF is an anylist with FT. I will ask her if anything comes up.


BTW, is Colt still the leading supplier to other Nations? Do they still own Diemaco?
