The pistol was to be manufactured by Bul in Israel and imported by CD. MR did not do the research, determine the specifications, or make repeated trips to Israel to ensure the gun being produced was correct. After CD was done with the hard work, and the gun was ready to go to production, MR stepped in and negotiated a deal with Bul to take the line, with one or two very minor cosmetic changes. MR and Bul demonstrated a complete lack of integrity in doing what they did. This dishonesty, in my opinion, was probably a significant contributor in CD/KBI having to close their doors. The investment in operating capital was probably too high to absorb with another company directly competing in the exact same market with basically the exact same gun made by the same manufacturer. Hope that answers your question. More can be found over at the CD forum as to what went wrong.
