Riflemaker Colt Competition Moves Operations To Texas

04.08.13 01:38 PM

Colt Competition, which makes AR-15-type rifles for Connecticut-based Coltís Manufacturing Co., will move its operations from Oregon to Texas, parent company Bold Ideas revealed Monday.

The change comes after a strong courtship effort by Texas Governor Rick Perry to roll out a friendly welcome mat to gun manufacturers frustrated by recent and drastic gun control legislation in their home States. Connecticutís Legislature passed a comprehensive gun bill last week that made most kinds of AR-15 rifles illegal to own in the State.

Colt Competition will now put down roots in Breckenridge, Texas — potentially trading more than 600 Oregon jobs for jobs in the Lone Star State.
