BRECKENRIDGE (CBS 11 NEWS) – A firearms company that makes AR-15 style rifles for the iconic brand Colt, will open a plant in Breckenridge in Stephens County. Oregon company Bold Ideas confirmed the development Friday.



Bold Ideas goes by the name Colt Competition, making high accuracy rifles for competition shooting.



The move by Colt Competition into Breckenridge comes as the CEO of Colt Manufacturing in Connecticut has said there will soon be few good answers to keep his company in the state.


Boy am I glad Colt is starting to get the heck out of Connecticut. Im also equally as glad they are moving to my state of Texas.

Hopefully other gun companies in anti-gun states start to follow. Beretta just the other day announced they are leaving Maryland and I think they're going to end up in Kansas.

ETA - If you want to see some of the Colt Competition Rifles they will be producing here in Texas, here's their site.

Kind of. Colt Competition is a "part" of Colt. What they make are the the Colt Competition Rifles. Basically, they make these Competition rifles for Colt.

Colt as a whole isnt leaving Connecticut (fully, yet) and moving to Texas, just a part of their rifle manufacturers are. To me, this seems as one of the first moves by Colt Manufacturing in jumping ship from CT since the CEO said "there will soon be few good answers to keep his company in the state"

ETA 2 - Colt is a pretty big company. For example, if you visit the Colt Competition website, you will find that they are a licensed product of "New Colt Holding Corp".

New Colt Holding Corp


New Colt Holding Corp., through its subsidiary, manufactures and sells military products for military and law enforcement use. The company offers a family of weapons that includes rifle, heavy barrel rifle, carbine with sliding stock, commando carbine, light machine gun, 9mm submachine gun, 40mm grenade launching attachment, and related accessories. New Colt Holding Corp. was incorporated in 1994 and is based in West Hartford, Connecticut.

*Added some more info in my previous post*

It seems like a pretty good sign. What would be best is if their "base" in CT would up and leave that state. It's great other parts of the company are moving, but their headquarters are still in CT. With what the CEO said earlier, Im hoping they get their headquarters moved out of state fast.

Hopefully we can get Springfield Armory out of Illinois also.

Good for Colt. I wondered about this when I first heard of the law passing. I was thinking how many firearms companies started there. Hopefully, it sends a message to other states thinking about similar laws.
