COLT Studio Group is an American pornography company. COLT has produced gay pornography since 1967. COLT started in New York City, moved to Los Angeles for twenty-five years, and is now based in San Francisco, California.

In 2007, COLT Studio Group celebrated its fortieth anniversary. Mayor of San Francisco Gavin Newsom signed a proclamation declaring February 23, 2007 as "Colt Studio Day" in celebration of this anniversary. This proclamation was controversial, attracting criticism from conservative commentators including Fox News' Bill O'Reilly.[1]

Because of financial difficulties, Rutherford and Settle could not repay Jim French and other creditors for outstanding debts, so they declared bankruptcy in the expectation of restoring the company. French sued them, and they countersued. In 2011, a judge approved the bankruptcy proceeding and the lawsuits were dropped.[2]
