"When we took a look at what folks wanted from a race ready pistol for USPSA and IDPA matches, we found an opportunity for a model between our blued Competition Pistol and our iconic Gold Cup," said Justin Baldini, director of product marketing for Colt. "This was an easy win. As an upgrade, the stainless Competition Pistol offers all the features you love about the blued model, only with that really appealing brilliance of a stainless steel slide and frame."
The stainless steel Colt Competition Pistol features Colt's Dual Spring Recoil System, and Novak's new adjustable rear sight and fiber optic front sight. Additionally, the undercut trigger guard and upswept beavertail safety are designed to aid shooters in competition. The pistol also comes standard with a National Match barrel.
The stainless steel Colt Competition Pistol models are available in .45 ACP (MSRP: $1,049), 9mm (MSRP: $1,049), and .38 Super (MSRP: $1,099).
