The Colt Competition Pistol is now available with a stainless steel slide and frame, the company has announced. These models feature everything you know and love about Colt Competition Pistols, including Colt’s Dual Spring Recoil System, Novak’s patent-pending adjustable rear sight and fiber optic front sight, an undercut triggerguard and upswept beavertail safety, and a National Match barrel.

“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, said in a press release. “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 new stainless steel Colt Competition Pistols are chambered in .45 ACP (MSRP: $1,049), 9mm (MSRP: $1,049) and .38 Super (MSRP: $1,099).
