I’m sure they will fix whatever the problem is. Since I am waiting before I buy one we will find out what the issue is and see if they recall the gun or just fix the problem on an individual basis. What I am concerned with is if it becomes a major recall, how that will affect Colt financially? Let’s face it, they are not terribly stable financially right now.
I'm sure the financial impact will depend on the type of fix. Replacing a cylinder will be much worse for them than replacing a spring or catch or, even better, make a minor adjustment to a small part. I bet they have "top people" looking into the reported problem as we speak (type).
Sig took a long time to issue a recall on the P320 for the drop-fire issue. They refused to label it a recall, as that does impact finances (and stock prices), because it is an admission they caused the problem. When they finally did offer a fix, it was purely a voluntary program, as they felt the chances of a loaded gun being dropped AND being in that exact orientation on impact AND the discharged round hitting someone would be extremely rare. Sig blamed the incomplete mandated test procedures for the gun leaving the factory with the problem (they weren't required to test dropping a P320 with a chambered round with the rear of the grip hitting the floor first). The trigger was of the right weight and without any safety mechanisms to allow inertia to move the trigger to the "fire" position.
In this case, it's not really a safety issue, so the priority will not be as high from a recall stance. But, if they want to sell more of them, these issues need to be addressed quickly and without costing the owner a penny.
Anyone here think there's a mole in Colt's factory sabotaging the production line? One would think if it's a design or manufacturing flaw, Colt would have seen it long before release.
