Colt's popular Competition Pistol line is getting an update. All models, which were originally offered with Colt's Series 80 firing system, will now feature the company's Series 70 firing system. Best of all, this change comes at no added cost to the consumer.

All the great features that have made the Competition Pistol Colt's number one selling handgun remain the same—it's ready to shoot a match right out of the box. The Novak adjustable rear sight and fiber optic front sight allows for easy target acquisition. Catering to the specific ergonomics needed by competitive shooters, the line includes Colt-branded blue G10 grips, and additionally Colt's Dual Spring Recoil System to ease recoil and keep shots on-target.

"The Series 70 firing system has long been associated with Colt's heritage as a top manufacturer of competition-grade firearms," said Product Manager and Pro Shooter for Colt, Mark Redl. He added, "As we look forward and build more value for shooters into our Competition Pistol line, we also seek to pay tribute to that storied heritage. For weekend competitors and those looking to improve their action pistol shooting game, this race ready pistol, which was already an excellent value, has just become even more desirable."


The blued Colt Competition Pistol in .45 ACP or 9mm retails for $899, while the stainless steel model in .45 ACP or 9mm goes for $999. The Colt Competition Pistol is also available in .38 Super in both finishes; $949 for the blued model and $1,049 for the stainless steel model.
