Colt Defense LLC., today filed Chapter 11 in federal bankruptcy court to remain open during an accelerated sale of long-time gun maker’s business operations in the US and Canada.

The move is the latest attempt by the struggling company to survive in an extremely competitive small arm industry.

Colt, the original maker of the M4 Carbine, seemed to lose some of its standing when the U.S. Army acquired expanded licensing rights in 2009 that made it possible for the service to invite other gun companies compete for contracts to build the weapon.

Before that happened, Colt had been the sole maker of the M4 for about 15 years.

Kalashnikov USA, manufacturer of Kalashnikov style firearms, has launched a new website reflective of their new branding efforts under the “Russian Heritage / American Innovation” tag line.

It’s a very nice-looking site, but I was a little disappointed that there are only two rifles and two shotguns listed in the firearms section. I assume there will be more to come based on the extensive display of weapons the Tullytown, Pa.- based company showed off in Vegas in January when it unveiled the new Kalashnikov-USA brand at SHOT Show.
