As long as Sciens Capital is still involved, it's only a matter of time before the doors close. No one will come in to take over as long as the company is carrying it's current debt.

Couple of good articles...

Carrying too much debt is the ever present dilemma, it seems in the past that the various iterations of Colt have concentrated on the defense/government sales. Presumably that will be what the next savior-scavenger will look at first, I would think that the consumer side will always be secondary.
