Colt has expanded its popular Competition Pistol line—the company's race-ready full-size Government Models—to include a model chambered in .38 Super.    

"Competitors are very selective about the caliber they rely on to win matches," said Mark Redl, pro shooter and product manager for Colt. "The .38 Super round has a lot of advantages in competition when considering power factor and capacity, and the 1911 platform offers many advantages as well. By offering our excellent Colt Competition Pistol in .38 Super, we allow match shooters who love that round to take advantage of our well thought out, race-ready platform. It's a winning combination."

The pistol (also available in .45 ACP and 9 mm) offers several features, including Colt's innovative Dual Spring Recoil System which reduces felt recoil and helps keep shots on target at critical moments. Other features include Novak's new patent pending adjustable rear sight and fiberoptic front sight, competition ergonomics including an undercut trigger guard and upswept beavertail safety, as well as a National Match barrel. MSRP is $999.
