First Look: Colt CRP-18 Pro Competition Rifle

With the surge in popularity of practical shooting competitions such as IPSC and 3-Gun Nation, firearm manufacturers are getting into the game with specialized rifles intended for winning.

The Colt CRP-18 Pro Competition rifle steps into the ring packed with features desired by run-and-gun match shooters. Nearly every component on the rifle has been carefully designed with competition shooters in mind.

Those components include an 18-inch fluted 416 stainless steel match grade barrel with 1-in-8-inch twist and a rifle length, tool-less adjustable gas system. The upper also includes a three-port muzzle brake and a 15-inch free floating modular handguard.

The lower receiver group features a Geissele SSA-E trigger which breaks around 3.5-pounds. Magpul furniture includes a CTR stock, MOE grip and enhanced trigger guard.


Custom tuned at the factory for optimal performance, the CRP-18 comes with a signed and serial numbered test target, with guaranteed groups of 1 MOA or less at 100 yards. A 30-round Magpul PMAG, Safariland cleaning kit and 1 year warranty are also included with the rifle.


The Colt CRP-18 Pro Competition Rifle is available now for $2,019.
