Colt 1911s are popular for bullseye competition, and the company is excited about this latest model. About the new pistol, Colt Senior Vice President of Commercial Business Paul Spitale said:

“What is really nice about the new Custom Competition Government 1911 is we used some of the key things from the Gold Cup. We’ve added a blended magwell, integrated backstrap and mainspring housing. Additionally, we put in a nice front fiber optic sight, Bomar-style rear sight and National Match barrel.”

The new 1911 will retail for $2499. They will be available in 9mm and .45 ACP versions, starting next month.
