Colt has a contract to convert 500,000 or so M4s to M4A1s. AFAIK, it is the only DOD contract they have, or at least the only sizable one. They are not a supplier for the new generation of 6.8mm rifles. They cannot afford to do poorly on the government contract, they need this to remain a viable government contractor in the future, and everybody and their brother are making AR15 variants for the commercial market. So yes this seems to be about business decisions and not caving to MomsWithTooMuchTimeAndNotEnoughSmarts.
