WEST HARTFORD, Conn. – -(Ammoland.com)- Colt congratulates sponsored shooter Mark Redl on taking first place in the Custom Defensive Pistol Division at the New England Regional IDPA Championship.

Redl scored 277.82 match points in the CDP Master Class, with 82 points down.

This victory also increases Redl’s lead in his division for the 2014 King of New England title, which he looks to claim again after his victory in 2013.

“We are all very excited for Mark and another outstanding win,” said Joyce Rubino, Vice President of Marketing for Colt’s Manufacturing Company.

“It is wonderful to see him continue to put in the hard work and get closer to achieving his goal of repeating his King of New England CDP Division title. Colt’s Manufacturing Company is also proud to have been a sponsor of this popular IDPA match.”

The King of New England series pulls scores from four stages, plus one alternate stage, at three of New England’s IDPA competitions. The four stages from the New England Regional Championship that count towards the King of New England rankings are stages one, three, six and seven, with stage 10 as the alternate. Redl finished first in his division in three out of the four stages.

“This match was an extremely technical one, with very tight shots,” said Redl. “I relied on a Colt Combat Elite factory gun to navigate through each stage with precision and match-grade accuracy. I am ecstatic about the win and look forward to the final match in the King of New England series in October.”

The New England Regional Championship is the second match of the three-leg concurrent King of New England series. It took place August 16 and 17 at the Harvard Sportsmen’s Club in Harvard, Mass. The first leg was the Massachusetts State Championship in June, and the third and final leg is the New Hampshire Live Free or Die Blockbuster State Championship in October.

Up next for Team Colt’s Redl and Maggie Reese is the USPSA Area 8 Championship Aug. 28 – 31 in Fredericksburg, Va. Visit Facebook.com/ColtFirearms to keep up with Team Colt shooters this year.
