Modern Shooter takes a look at how Colt is supporting the Folds of Honor Foundation, plus the new Colt Competition and Colt Combat Unit pistols.
Colt is not just rolling out new handguns for the commercial market, they're putting their money where their mouth is by making a contribution to Folds of Honor for every firearm sold. The foundation awards scholarships to families of veterans lost or disabled on the battlefield.
The episode also takes an in-depth look at the new Colt Competition Pistol, a ready-to-run 1911 designed for competition shooting. “You can race it on Sunday, and carry it on Monday,” says Pro Shooter Mark Redl.
Redl gives a close look at the features of the pistol, including its adjustable rear sight and fiber optic Novak front.
The handgun comes with a Colt National Match barrel and the dual recoil spring that was developed for the Marine Corps M45A1, also made by Colt.
Redl explains how the feature extends spring life and reduces muzzle flip, helping you get back on target faster.
Then it's off to Gunsite, where the 2016 Colt products are unveiled, including the Colt Combat Unit Pistol.
