Colt announced the launch of its stainless steel versions of Competition Pistol models, expanding the lineup for the company's popular blued Competition Pistol line.

"When we took a look at what folks wanted from a race-ready pistol for USPSA and IDPA matches, we found an opportunity for a model between our blued Competition Pistol and our iconic Gold Cup," said Justin Baldini, director of product marketing for Colt. "This was an easy win. As an upgrade, the stainless Competition Pistol offers all the features you love about the blued model, only with that really appealing brilliance of a stainless steel slide and frame."

The new versions contain the same features found in the original line, such as the Dual Spring Recoil System, Novak's adjustable rear sights and fiber-optic front sights, undercut trigger guard, upswept beavertail safety and a National Match barrel.

Caliber options for the new stainless steel line are .45 ACP, 9 mm and .38 Super. The .45 ACP and 9 mm models will retail for $1,049, while the .38 Super option will retail for $1,099.
