WEST HARTFORD, Conn. –-( Colt is excited to announce new lower pricing on all of the wildly popular Colt Competition Pistol line.

The new lower pricing reflects a $50 reduction on all models, which now start at $899 for blued and $999 for stainless steel.

“We listened,” said Paul Spitale, SVP at Colt.

“At $899 for a blued model in 9mm or .45 ACP, the Competition Pistol is a screaming deal, and one that our customers really appreciate. So once again, enthusiasts can go into their favorite Colt Stocking Dealer and get ready to compete with a real Colt 1911 featuring a Novak adjustable rear sight and fiber optic front sight, competition ergonomics, those iconic blue G10 grips, and of course our Dual Spring Recoil System for a truly pleasant shooting experience.”

Funny the MSRP on the blued Competition Colts in .45acp and 9mm was 899.00 when they were released so not sure how they dropped the MSRP 50.00 when it’s still the same? And the yes the stainless in those calibers was 999.00 too! The 50.00 price drop is only in the .38 Super pistols nothing else in the line. I should know as I used to help out my buddy at his gun shop before it closed last month, so have seen all of Colt’s pricing as we were a dealer for them. So the article should really say Colt… Read more »


USPSA Single Stack guns need a magazine well. Colt should know that too.

Still a swing and a miss.

Arched or flat? Better to keep it plastic and let the buyer decide

I am, currently, having a love affair with a slick little Canadian named ParaOrdinance 14/45 LDA. I think that Remington bought the patents, the company, and all the equipment so that the very groovy Para could not compete with Remmy’s crappy factory quality handguns.

Why would any one want a 1911 when they can get an FNX-45 for $700,00 is beyond me?


There are many who think ANY handgun model without 1911 in the model designation IS NOT WORTH OWNING!!!

I’ve been carrying a 1911 for 40 years. I have bought a few plastic pistols, they aren’t bad, they are FAT. I can carry a gov’t all steel 1911 without buying the next size waist pair of pants. The weight , 40oz loaded, isn’t a factor either. A well made IWB holster and belt and you’re good. I also can conceal under a tee shirt tucked in, no marking. Now you might think I’m a fat guy, not really. 6″2″, 220lbs and I wear a 34″ waist pant, so not huge. The trigger is also superior. After all, the 1911… Read more »


My son in law has one, in the tan. Nice gun, doesn’t shoot any better than my SR1911. There is next to NOTHING made (make that nothing) for the gun, when he got his you couldn’t even find a holster for it. I made a Blackhawk holster for an XD45 fit it. It’s half plastic and the trigger isn’t as good. Sorry, I’ll stick with my 1911.

Have your son check Alien Gear! I bet they have one custom to what your son needs~!


Glad someone at Colt woke up before they went belly up. The price on the street should be manageable for most.


The “adjustable rear Novak sight” appears to be drift adjustable for windage only, not the screw-click-adjustable model Novak also offers?

Hmmm, apparently Colt’s Harvard MBAs guessed wrong, at first, on how much they could squeeze out of the buying public for the Cold name.
