The new releases expand on Colt's classic Rail Gun, XSE Series, 1991 Series and Gold Cup handgun lines and give shooters more choices in terms of caliber, weight, rails and other features.

"Our new handgun introductions provide customers with the same high-quality products the market expects from Colt, with a greater diversity in design and configuration," said Joyce Rubino, Vice President of Marketing for Colt's Manufacturing. "We are excited to offer our customers a great array of choices to find the Colt handgun that best suits them for personal protection, target shooting, competitive shooting, hunting and other needs."

It features an M1913 Picatinny rail on the dust cover on the outside, while incorporating the M45A1's dual-recoil spring system on the inside for reduced recoil. The handgun sports a stainless steel slide and receiver and utilizes a 4.25-inch National Match Barrel for an overall length of 7.75 inches.

The Lightweight Commander and the Stainless Government Model are both available for $1,104.
