The Colt Competition Pistol line is expanding with the addition of the .38 Super chambering to the roster.

“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.”

As the press release notes, the Colt Competition Pistol, also available in .45 ACP and 9mm, is a great option for competition shooters. It features Colt’s Dual Spring Recoil System, which reduces felt recoil and helps keep shots on target when it matters most.

This handgun also features Novak’s patent-pending adjustable rear sight and fiber optic front sight, competition ergonomics including an undercut triggerguard and upswept beavertail safety, and a National Match barrel.

The blued Colt Competition Pistol in .38 Super is available at a suggested retail price of $999.
