WEST HARTFORD, Conn. –-(Ammoland.com)- Fueling anticipation for what Colt considers to be a very exciting upcoming year, the legendary firearms manufacturer announces the release of a new model in it’s extremely well received Colt Competition Pistol line by adding the .38 Super cambering 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.”
The Colt Competition Pistol (also available in .45 ACP and 9mm) offers several features that competitive shooters will appreciate, including Colt’s innovative Dual Spring Recoil System which reduces felt recoil and helps keep shots on target at critical moments.

The Colt Competition Pistol in .38 Super with blued finish is SKU: O1983CCP and carries an MSRP of $999.
