Prague, October 14, 2022 – Colt Group SE (“Colt CZ”, the “Group” or the “Company”) hereby announces that on October 12, 2022, it finalized the acquisition of the remaining 75% stake in its Swedish subsidiary Spuhr i Dalby AB.

“We are excited about Spuhr joining Colt CZ Group as a fully integrated member. Spuhr has clearly demonstrated its ability to innovate, which we believe will bring more opportunities for the whole Group on both the military and law enforcement and commercial markets. We are eager to deepen our cooperation with Spuhr’s leadership, its employees, and its customers,” said Jan Drahota, CEO and Chairman of the Board of Directors of Colt CZ Group.

“The successful cooperation between Colt CZ Group and Spuhr during the first two years has led to this next step. Spuhr’s founder Hakan Spuhr and I will remain with the company and will continue to build the Spuhr brand together with Colt CZ Group. Being part of the Colt CZ family is a great opportunity for both Spuhr and its employees. We are all looking forward to even closer cooperation,” highlighted Ulf Nilsson, CEO of Spuhr.

      The only thing I know for sure since the change is that it’s harder for me to get writer’s demos or get time to talk to my friends that work there

      Overall, there doesn’t seem to be any significant impact by the CZ acquisition. Colt stopped milling off selector stops on their rifles and carbines about May 2022 or so but that was implemented by Colt and not CZ. One thing that CZ very well may have impacted is the appearance of the M5 carbine on the civilian market this year.
