The Colt light rifle is based on Melvin Forbes' Ultra light Arms based in WV. He collaborated with Colt to mass produce these arms. They has a falling out and split. The product that did get produced should be top notch for production rifles. The article I read praised them highly. Melvin is back inbusiness in WV under the title New Ultra Light Arms.
I don't remember exactly where the article is located. I get 5 magazines a month and keep them all. I have an unbelievable collection of shooting rags. My wife keeps threatening to start a fire. It's been awhile since I've heard anything about it, probably a year or so, maybe more. Sorry I can't be more help. If I happen to come across the article I'll let youknow.
