The Colt Competition pistol line, launched in 2016, featured 1911s chambered in both 9 mm and .45 ACP. Now, the company has added .38 Super to its chambering options.

"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 our well thought out, race-ready platform. It's a winning combination."

The Colt Competition Pistol offers several features that benefit competitive shooters. The gun features Colt's Dual Spring Recoil System, which is designed to reduce felt recoil in order to keep shots on target. The pistol also features an adjustable rear sight and fiber-optic front sight from Novak. In addition, the Colt Competition Pistol also features an undercut trigger guard, upswept beavertail safety and a National Match barrel. The pistol retails at a suggested price of $999.
