According to a recent report from Soldier Systems, Colt is updating its incredibly popular Colt Competition Pistol™ line.
Per the Soldier Systems story:
All models, which were originally offered with Colt’s Series 80™ firing system, will now feature Colt’s Series 70™ firing system. This change comes at no added cost to the consumer; the pistol will continue to be priced starting at $899 for blued and $999 for stainless steel.
Colt is pursuing yet another class of competitive shooter now with this recent change. All the great features that have made the Competition Pistol™ Colt’s number one selling handgun remain the same. Whether they prefer stainless or blued finish, competitors who are preparing for their next match can pick up a Series 70™ Colt Competition Pistol™ and shoot the match right out of the box. Featuring the same Novak adjustable rear sight and fiber optic front sight for easy target acquisition, competition ergonomics, Colt branded blue G10 grips, and Colt’s Dual Spring Recoil System™ to ease recoil and keep shots on-target, the Colt Competition Pistol™ continues to be one of the best values in firearms today.
The blued Colt Competition Pistol™ in .45 ACP or 9mm has an MSRP of $899, while the stainless steel model in .45 ACP or 9mm 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.
