Colt has announced plans to expand their product line yet again with a fresh take on the Combat Commander for 2017. The newly redesigned Colt Combat Commander, available in 9mm and .45 ACP, features a blued carbon steel construction, wide angled cocking serrations and Novak LoMount sights.

Made for the 1911 enthusiast who wants a more compact option for concealed carry, the Colt Combat Commander also now includes the same upgraded ergonomics as the Colt Lightweight Commander and Colt Competition Pistol.

“The Combat Commander has always been a great carry firearm for self defense,” Justin Baldini, Product Director for Colt, says in a press release. “What differentiates this updated model from its predecessor are the great features we’ve been rolling out on much of our line that shooters really enjoy. The new Combat Commander features an upswept beavertail grip safety and undercut trigger guard to allow users to get good purchase on the grip, and our great Colt G10 grips. Felt recoil is lessened by our Dual Spring Recoil System, which aids in shot recovery, keeping you on target in those critical moments. All that with a 4.25” barrel, which is .75” shorter than a standard Government Model.”

We’re only a couple of weeks into the new year, and Colt is already on a roll. The Connecticut-based gun maker recently announced it was bringing back the Cobra. A new 10mm Delta Elite Rail Gun, as well as the company’s first lighting line, are also in the pipeline.

The updated Colt Combat Commander is available at a suggested retail price of MSPR of $949.
