posted on September 9, 2018
Colt is once again marketing pistols to the competitive shooting crowd, acknowledging the growing presence of 9 mm as a viable option in gear. Out-of-the-box models like the Colt Competition in 9 mm Luger contain features that take shooters directly to the range, such as a carbon-steel slide, a grip safety with large memory pad, Novak-style adjustable rear sights, and a blue fiber-optic front sight. Blue and black G10 grips contribute the pistol's sleek, racy aesthetic. Check out this ARTV "Rifleman Review" segment hosted by Joe Kurtenbach for more on the Colt Competition 9 mm pistol, a full-size 5" Government Model 1911 that has been nicely appointed.
