I suspect this will be a good thing. My older Colts are of a much better quality than the stuff Colt has produced during this century, especially the Pythons. CZ is not known for its corner cutting. See the details, at https://www.american...to-acquire-colt.

My favorite handgun hands down is my CZ75B.    Standard issue to Eastern Bloc police forces for decades.  

Stayed away from 9mm (as I hated the Beretta the Pentagon replaced our beloved 1911s with) until I researched CZ.

When FN took over Winchester in the 90’s, the quality improved. I was disappointed with the new Colt Cobra revolver. The revolver lacked the quality and fit of the older Colt revolvers I own.

I’m a big CZ fan.

 

Be interesting to see what they do

I'm surprised Colt can't stand alone. I do like CZ's stuff.

Just for the record, back in the early 1980's I worked for Colt Industries.

NO, not Colt Firearms. They were owned by a holding company that owned a number of Corporations, including 
Fairbanks Scales that I worked for.

They took the name Colt Industries because it was the most prestigious of the bunch.

 

So, Colt has not really been Colt for a long time.

The old timers their still built a quality firearm and taught the last remaining gunsmiths to work on the firearms. This is why they needed to build newer revolvers with less attention to detail.
