“Competitors are very selective about the caliber they rely on to win matches,” said Mark Redl, Pro Shooter and Product Manager for Colt. “The .38 Super round has a lot of advantages in competition when considering power factor and capacity, and the 1911 platform offers many advantages as well. By offering our excellent Colt Competition Pistol in .38 Super, we allow match shooters who love that round to take advantage our well thought out, race-ready platform. It’s a winning combination.”
The Colt Competition Pistol is also available in .45 ACP and 9mm, offering several features that competitive shooters will appreciate. These include Colt’s Dual Spring Recoil System, Novak’s new patent pending adjustable rear sight and fiber optic front sight, and a National Match barrel. The Colt Competition Pistol in .38 Super with blued finish carries an MSRP of $999.
