I've owned a few, they are solid guns and have a good set of features for the price.

There is also a two-tone Competition Plus model that has a checkered front strap.

I have two. They are a good gun. Mine came with decent triggers, both 5 lbs. and a slight bit of creep, I did do a trigger job on both to 4 lbs., the thumb safety on one was stiff, so polished that, both ejected okay. Both shoot better than I can. I would not hesitate to buy one, plus, you get the Colt name.

So, are we looking to start a discussion on these or just give a quick answer? I don't own a Competition as I'm really not into modern 1911s with beavertails and such, but I have handled many of them at gun shops and they impressed me as excellent guns for the price. I would definitely prefer one over a Kimber. The only negatives I have noted are that sometimes the fiber-optic sights fall out and Colt (as usual) leaves too many sharp edges everywhere.

Avoid the temptation to replace everything on your brand-new 1911 just to make it "better". Know what you're changing out and why. You may spend a lot of money fixing things that weren't broken to begin with. Shoot at least 500 rounds through it first, then decide what you don't like and want to improve. Regarding vintage 1911s, pre-1970 pistols are highly collectible in original, unaltered condition and should NEVER be refinished or modified as it completely ruins their monetary value.

Yes the edges are sharp for sure i have the . 9mm 2 tone. Stainless slide jungle green frame ya i know but anyone know if frame is. Carbon or stainless i to prefer . Older builds but no denying. The close tolerances. Just hoping. They are just as tough as there. Predecessor..hard for a old hippy sometimes except. Sorry about the spelling . If hard to well sorry

Just shot my 9mm SS Competition for the first time tonight and am impressed. 120 rounds with no issues other than a few empties to the head, I'm sure an extractor adjustment would fix that. First three shots were touching at POA. Clay pigeons and tin cans didn't stand a chance. Very good trigger, I'd say 4 lbs., the thumb safety and rollmarks are also pretty good. Some wiggle in the grip panels but some Loctite will take care of that. I may replace the red FOS for the blue.

It sure is easier on my wrist than my .45 1911s.
