SHOT Show 2018: Colt Custom Competition 1911 Pistol

posted on January 24, 2018
The Colt Custom Competition is a new government model coming out of the Colt Custom Shop. The gun is upgraded with a flared magazine well as well as having the 24-lpi checkering on the front strap. There were little upgraded touches to virtually every aspect of this Colt, including the top of the slide being grooved to reduce glare and an excellent fully adjustable Bo-Mar in the rear sight. American Rifleman's Mark Keefe stopped by the Colt bay at Industry Day at the Range ahead of SHOT Show 2018 to chat with Colt's Paul Spitale about the gun. See what he had to say in this video, and for more, visit Colt.com.
