WEST HARTFORD, CONN. (January 26, 2023) – Colt‘s Combat Commander melds classic 1911 durability with modern innovations that provide upgrades to the classic firearm, making it an excellent choice for competition and concealed carry uses. Shooters can choose between 9MM Luger and 45 ACP platforms that are ready for action.

Colt’s classic 1911 styling is evident throughout the Combat Commander. Features like an upswept beavertail grip safety, commander-style hammer, and familiar 1911-style controls. The upgraded Combat Commander features enhancements like Colt’s patented dual recoil system that reduces felt recoil while extending recoil spring life, a high-swept beavertail grip safety with integrated palm swell, and an undercut trigger guard for better control. Together, these features contribute to excellent grip, quick target acquisition, and high performance.

Combat Commander pistols feature 4.25-inch stainless steel barrels offering a longer sight radius and improved ballistics over compact models. The combat-ready Novak dovetail sights use white dots for rapid target acquisition. And the Commander’s custom checkered G10 Black Cherry grips provide excellent grip while complementing the pistol’s deep blue metal finish. 

The Combat Commander uses a carbon steel frame, slide, and stainless-steel barrel for performance and longevity. These pistols are well known for their durability and long service life, while their extra weight soaks up recoil for faster follow-up shots. The Combat Commander tips the scales at 33 ounces, striking the perfect weight balance.
