The new 1911-style Colt Competition Pistol, which is available in both .45 ACP and 9mm, incorporates Colt's innovative Dual Spring Recoil System developed for the Marine Corps' M45A1 Close Quarter Battle Pistol in order to reduce recoil and help control muzzle rise at critical moments.
"This pistol is competition grade," said Mark Redl, Team Colt sponsored shooter and product manager for Colt. "We designed a pistol that you can buy on the way to a match."
Additional features include Novak's new adjustable rear sight and fiber optic front sight, competition ergonomics including G10 grips, an undercut trigger guard, and upswept beavertail safety and a National Match barrel. The Colt Competition Pistol carries a suggested retail price of $899.
