Colt and LMT for instance are ISO 9000 certified and hold government contracts.
lot me throw a little in on the subject,milspec is "built to a military standard" that is,they said thats how its gonna be like it or not.everything has a spec from coatings,lubes,springs,clips,pins ect. the company i work for is a aerospace company building parts for boeing, they use milspecs on some things. as for iso9000 and iso9100,goverment contracts, 99.99% of the aholes that say you get it or not have no freaking idea what you do,your paper work is just all in order. bottom line is if you buy from a good company you get good ****,if not they will make it right.
