WEST HARTFORD, Conn. – -( Building on the incredible success of the Colt Competition Pistol, the historic firearms manufacturer has sought to expand the line by offering the same great feature set in a series of stainless steel models.

“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 PistolTM 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 PistolTM offers all the features you love about the blued model, only with that really appealing brilliance of a stainless steel slide and frame.”

The stainless steel Colt Competition Pistol features Colt’s innovative Dual Spring Recoil System which reduces felt recoil and helps keep shots on target at critical moments.

Other features include Novak’s new patent pending adjustable rear sight and fiber optic front sight, competition ergonomics including an undercut trigger guard and upswept beavertail safety, and a National Match® barrel.

The stainless steel Colt Competition Pistol is available in .45 ACP (SKU: O1080CCS, MSPR: $1,049), 9mm (SKU: O1082CCS, MSPR: $1,049), and .38 Super (SKU: O1083CCS, MSPR: $1,099).

    1. I have the stainless Competition in 45. So far over 1000 rounds zero malfunctions of any kind and the gun gets better and better. This gun makes me look like a better shooter than I really am.

    2. purchased the 38 super in this stainless sight unseen. First impression was that this is a stretch of my imagination to be called a competitive model because it appears that some deceptive cosmetics like the g10 grips, so – so sights, magazine release from hell [changed spring], cheap magazines and a poor fitting barrel called national match were hung on a less than finished frame. Shooting was even a bigger disappointment as it won’t run a magazine of fmj without a jam, A closer inspection found that the hood of the barrel has a significant gap to the frame. The barrel is not a ramped barrel, which one would consider in a competitive model plus their ramping from frame to barrel has a big step causing hang ups or jams. The trigger to frame fit is so bad that it bites your finger. From all appearances and operation this pistol is pure junk. If Colt keeps trying to deceive the public they will be going belly up again.

    3. I bought a Competition 9mm and took it to a high end gun school. I’m very pleased with the ergonomics and ease of handling as well as the trigger . My current round count in the gun is 2650 and the gun gets slicker.
