Colt has upgraded its Competition Pistol Line to feature Colt's Series 70 firing system, with no added cost to the consumer.

"The Series 70 firing system has long been associated with Colt's heritage as a top manufacturer of competition-grade firearms," said Mark Redl, Product Manager and Pro Shooter for Colt. "As we look forward and build more value for shooters into our Competition Pistol line, we also seek to pay tribute to that storied heritage. For weekend competitors and those looking to improve their action-pistol shooting game, this race-ready pistol, which was already an excellent value, has just become even more desirable."

All the features that have made the Competition Pistol Colt's No. 1 selling handgun remain the same—choice of stainless or blued finish; Novak adjustable rear sight and fiber optic front sight; competition ergonomics, Colt-branded blue G10 grips; and Colt's Dual Spring Recoil System—all right out of the box, enabling a new class of competition shooters. 

The blued Colt Competition Pistol in .45 ACP or 9 mm has an MSRP of $899, while the stainless steel model in .45 ACP or 9 mm has an MSRP of $999. The Colt Competition Pistol is also available in .38 Super in both finishes; $949 for the blued model and $1,049 for the stainless steel model.
