Colt Announces Stainless Steel Competition Pistol™ Models

WEST HARTFORD, Conn. (November 2, 2016) – Building on the incredible success of the Colt Competition Pistol™, the historic firearms manufacturer has sought to expand the line by offering the same great feature set in a series of stainless steel models.

"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 innovative Dual Spring Recoil System™ which reduces felt recoil and helps keep shots on target at critical moments. Other features include Novak's new patent pending adjustable rear sight and fiber optic front sight, competition ergonomics including an undercut trigger guard and upswept beavertail safety, and a National Match® barrel. The stainless steel Colt Competition Pistol™ is available in .45 ACP (SKU: O1080CCS, MSPR: $1,049), 9mm (SKU: O1082CCS, MSPR: $1,049), and .38 Super (SKU: O1083CCS, MSPR: $1,099).
